Teams met each other in all tournaments eight times and in none of these matches Portugal won, having four defeats and four draws. Portugal won only two of their last four matches. France suffered only one defeat in 13 last matches.
As for other competitors in the fight for the first place, they simply do not exist. Croatia fails the tournament, having only three points in the asset, whereas Sweden did not manage to score a single point in four matches. Portugal played its last match with the Swedes in the tournament in October, in which it did not have the slightest problems, sending three unanswered goals to the opponent's goal.
This week the Portuguese played a friendly match with Andorra, in which Santos gave a chance to the nearest reservists. In the end, the debutants did not disappoint the mentor. The striker of "Braga" Paulinho showed himself most vividly, in whose asset he played in the debut match for the national team. The fight ended with a 7:0 victory for Portugal.
In the middle of the week the French national team played against Finland in a friendly match, where they probably expected to get an easy victory. Deschamps did not release a full reserve squad, diluting the base with several reservists, among whom was the protagonist of the last rounds of the Champions League, Marcus Thuram. His debut was unsuccessful. France lost sensationally 0:2, ending the streak unbeaten from 12 matches.
The French do not have a serious superiority in class, but at the same time the “tricolors” clearly feel more confident in positional attacks. Today Portugal is clearly betting on defense and is unlikely to take risks. France is quite capable of finding its moment and realizing it, after which it will be extremely difficult for the hosts to recoup.
