France – Portugal: who will be stronger?
France won the last five matches, but whether Portugal will stop the French on October 11 – you will find the answer in the forecast. What to expect from the meeting?
The French national team continues to confirm its high class – Didier Deschamps ‘ team powerfully qualified for the European Championship. In 10 fights, the “tricolor” won eight victories, and this was enough to secure the first place in the group.
France has already played two matches in the League of Nations, in which it was very convincing. In the first round, they managed to get hold of three points in a difficult struggle – one goal by Kilian Mbappe was enough to defeat Sweden. In the second round Croatia became the victims of the French – the “checkers” did not resist for long and lost 2: 4, allowing France to score six points and not let Portugal go into the lead.
In a friendly match with Ukraine this week, France was again active in attack and this helped it to beat Ukraine on a large scale – the victory with a score of 7: 1 underlined the superiority of the “tricolors” in the class over the opponent.
The Portuguese national team , unlike its today’s rival, did not live up to the status of the favorite in the selection for the European Championship. Fernando Santos’ team made it to the tournament only from the second place, losing the leadership of the Ukrainian national team.
In the League of Nations, Portugal started with a home match with Croatia, where it did not leave the opponent a single chance. The victory with a score of 4: 1 turned out to be rather easy, but that evening everything could have ended much more sadly for the Croats. In the second match, Portugal beat Sweden 2: 0 away and became the leader of the group.
In the last friendly match with Spain, Santos started the rotation, but it was not as large-scale as that of the “red fury”, but in the end it was not possible to beat the opponent – a goalless draw was a completely natural result.
France won last five matches
France beat Portugal in their last two home games
France have scored fewer than two goals in only one of their last eight home games
The French national team is in great shape – three victories in a row after the quarantine clearly testify to this. Today, the “tricolors” have an excellent opportunity to take the first line for themselves – for this they need to beat Portugal.
The task is certainly not simple, but it is difficult to call it impracticable either – France traditionally gains major victories at home, it is highly likely that this series will continue today, Portugal has problems in defense.
We believe that guests have nothing to count on. The forecast is a victory for France . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 2.20
