France find themselves on four points from their opening two games but still need a victory to guarantee themselves top spot and a favourable draw in the Round of 16.
It’s looking rather perilous for Portugal, who know that a heavy defeat against the World Cup winners could knock them out of the tournament, but a draw would be enough to put them through.
But we fancy the French to sneak a tight game and we’re going for this 8/1 bet builder treble:
- Under 2.5 Goals
- Kylian Mbappe to Score Anytime
- France to Win
Portugal vs France Bet Builder Betting Tip:
Under 2.5 Goals
You would be forgiven for thinking that, with the attacking talent in both sides, we would have seen plenty of goals between the two in recent years, but it’s quite the opposite.
Five of the last six meetings have seen under 2.5 goals, and better yet, all five of them have had no more than one goal, with four 1-0 results and a 0-0 draw thrown in for good measure.
Kylian Mbappe to Score Anytime
The PSG striker has looked a real threat in both of his side’s opening two games and had a brilliant goal unfortunately ruled out for offside in their game against France last week.
The 22-year-old may have gone four games without a goal, but with 41 so far this season, he’s certainly due a few more.
France to Win
Anyone who saw this Portugal side in their defeat to Germany will know that their defence was looking particularly fragile, and if one side can make them pay, it’s the French.
And despite losing the Euro 2016 final to tonight’s opponents, Les Bleus have an excellent record against Portugal, winning 11 of the last 13 meetings between the two.
