Sunday, 10.07.2016 at 21:00
The EURO 2016 soon is over. There is only one match left, the big final match between Portugal and the host France. In this final match a real successful offensive team meets the opposite, the defence counterpart. The Deschamps eleven is the favourite in this match. Kick-off in Paris for the final match on the 10th of July is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of Portugal
France is able to do what Portugal has missed 12 years ago. We talk about winning the EURO in the own country. One of the few players that already have played 12 years ago is Christiano Ronaldo. The Real-Star is fighting his own city derby at the final against Antoine Griezmann. In addition he still has a small chance to be the top goal scorer of the EURO. Beside the good performance of Ronaldo a good defence is also very important for Portugal on Sunday. It is pretty sure that the team of Fernando Sanchez will count on a counter play as they have practised this at the whole KO phase. Even when this style of play isn’t a great spectacle the success speaks for it. The Coach Santos can also count on the Real defence player Pepe who I returning again after an injury and will give the defence an addition stability. A bad sign for Portugal is that the past four matches against France have all been lost. The last encounter between these two teams has been in September 2015 and France has won with a score of 1:0. The performance against Wales gives hope again. An interesting fact is also that the victory against Wales has been the first victory of Portugal in this EURO where they have won after 90 minutes.
Current performance of France
The Equipe Tricolore has nearly reached their goal. There is only one victory missing and then they will win the second title in their own country after the world championship in 1998. Back then and also today Didier Deschamps is on board. While he actively played at the world championship he now is coaching the team. He probable is satisfied with the performance of his team. France has already scored 13 goals in this EURO that is more than any other team has scored. Six goals have been scored by Antoine Griezmann. The performance from the forward player of Atlético Madrid has improved from play to play and has good chances for being the top goal scorer in this EURO. At the semi-final he nearly has beaten Germany alone when he scored both goals. At the eighth finals against Ireland (2:1) and at the quarter final against Iceland (5:2) he has also been at least once successful. It also seem as if the defence has stabilized with Samuel Umtiti, who has replaced Adil Ramí at the last 8 matches. At the middle field they also have great players like Pogba or Payet. In addition they can count on the support of their fans which will give them additional power.
Betting tip for this match
Portugal is acting very strong at the defence, while France is better at the offensive play and always struggles at the defence. The host of the EURO definitely has more individual quality at the squad. Portugal on the other side always depends on the current condition of Christiano Ronaldo. In addition the victory against Germany at the semi-final has set additional power free. That’s why we think that France will win the EURO 2016. Our tip: tip 2.
