Portugal and France will meet again in a major tournament after five years. Therefore, the wounds would be fresh for the Frenchmen, and now would be the perfect time for them to the advantage of the situation.
The two teams will meet in the final matchday of the Euro group stages in a staggering contest.
Portugal 1-3 France
Portugal 2-2 France
After a defeat at the hands of the Germans, the Portuguese team will not be playing with complete confidence. Robin Gosens damaged the left defensive side of Portugal and took the game by a storm after trailing by one goal in the early stages.
Portugal goes into the game with the bragging rights to their name. Would they be able to stop the French team from wreaking havoc? Would they be able to take a second successive win in a major tournament?
We have a lot of questions stacked up that can only be answered after the full-time whistle. So let’s see how the situations play out for both teams.
It was a rollercoaster ride for the French team in their second game against Hungary. After trailing by one goal, Griezmann cancelled it out just around the half-hour mark, and France saw Dembele leaving due to a knee injury. Reports say that the Barcelona man will be out for three months.
Portugal conceded all goals from the left side due to Nelson Semedo’s poor positioning and bad man-marking. If he continues to start again, he will face Kylian Mbappe on that side, which could prove horrific for the Portuguese full-back.
We do not know the result, but we know that France will play for more than just three points.
Barring any injury or suspension news, the two teams will be lining up like this:
Portugal: Patricio; Semedo, Dias, Pepe, Guerreiro; Pereira, Sanches, Fernandes; B.Silva, Ronaldo, Jota
France: Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Kante, Pogba, Tolisso; Griezmann; Mbappe, Benzema
As the world sets its eyes on this thrilling encounter, we think that the Frenchmen have a score to settle here.
Our prediction: Portugal 1-3 France
