Betting Preview: Latest Results and Roster Updates

Portugal National Football Team

Portugal are coming off a crucial win over Slovenia in a penalty shootout, which is the first and only game so far to reach the penalties in the Euro this year. They had a chance to finish the match earlier, but Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t convert the penalty to give them the win in extra time. The Portuguese have scored five goals in this tournament, and they had the same amount of goals at this stage when they won the event in 2016.

It doesn’t feel right for Cristiano Ronaldo to be scoreless in the Euro so far, as he has scored at least one goal in each of the last five editions. Bruno Fernandes has been brilliant for the team, and they have won all 17 games in which he scored for Portugal. Bernardo Silva has been good as well, scoring one goal over Turkey in the group stage.

France National Football Team

France continued their slow playing style to get a late goal for a 1-0 win over Belgium in the round of 16. Les Bleus are yet to score from open play in this tournament, as their three goals came from two own goals and a penalty, but on the bright side, they have conceded only one goal in four games. The football Euro 24 bookmakers have reduced their odds of winning the title after their poor performance, as they are now the 4th favorites.

Les Bleus have been lacking creativity in the offense, despite having some great attacking players like Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann. They will miss Adrien Rabiot due to suspension, so Eduardo Camavinga is expected to get into the starting lineup in this game.

Neither of those two teams have been impressive in the Euros this year. They have both been struggling and could have easily lost their round of 16 matchups. The lack of goals and solid defense from France can make this game end 0-0 or 1-1, especially since Portugal are coming off an over-time match and won’t take big risks.

Those Euro 2024 odds for betting on the draw here are worthy of playing. Two of the last three encounters between France and Portugal ended in draws, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this is another draw, given how out of form those two teams have been throughout the tournament.

The 41-year-old Pepe had to play 120 minutes in a physical battle with Slovenia on Monday. The Portuguese defender is known for being a card magnet with his aggressive playing style, but he has yet to receive a card in the tournament, so he is due for one. Five defenders have received a card against Les Bleus in the tournament so far, as they have a lot of speed in the offense, which will definitely get to Pepe in this game.

Total Corners – Over 9.5 @ 2.0 (Evs)

Portugal’s corner record in the tournament is looking as follows: 13, 1, 11,11, so they have gone over this total of corners in three of their four games in this tournament, even without the help of the other teams. Les Bleus had at least five corners in three consecutive games, so the over looks good here with both of them getting a lot of corners lately.
