The teams will play for the fourth time in the Euros – in 1996, the Czech Republic defeated Portugal in the quarterfinals, but in the next two encounters, "The Navigators" were stronger (3:1 in the group stage in 2008 and 1:0 in the quarterfinals in 2012). The teams also played in the Nations League in 2022, where Portugal won both times – 2:0 at home and 4:0 away.

Portugal

Bookmakers consider the Portuguese to be among the tournament favorites, along with England, Germany, and France. Indeed, Portugal breezed through the qualifying tournament, earning maximum points, but their opponents were relatively weak – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia, Iceland, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein.

In the spring, “The Navigators” played two friendlies, thrashing Sweden 5-2 and losing 0-2 away to Slovenia. At the start of the summer, as part of their Euro preparation, Portugal lost 1-3 at home to Croatia and then crushed Ireland 3-0.

Many experts consider the goalkeeper and the central defense to be the weak links of this team. Croatia, Slovenia, and even Sweden and Finland were able to exploit these weaknesses, although Portugal managed to overcome the latter two thanks to strong attacking play.

Czech Republic

The Czech national team secured second place in their European Championship qualifying group, unexpectedly falling behind Albania, with both teams earning the same number of points. At the same time, the Czechs outperformed Poland, which is undergoing a generational change, as well as Moldova and the Faroe Islands.

Regarding the current form of Ivan Ha?ek’s team, they have lost only once in their last ten matches, securing six wins in the process. The Czech national team is heading into the European Championship with a five-game winning streak. In the spring, the “white-blue-reds” defeated Norway away (2-1) and Armenia at home (2-1), and in June, they thrashed Malta (7-1) and narrowly beat North Macedonia (2-1).

Prediction

Despite all their defensive problems, Portugal should secure three points in their opening match. For Czech Republic, the key matches in the group will be against Georgia and Turkey. Our bet is 'Portugal to win and Total under 4.5' with odds of 1.88.
