France vs Portugal Prediction & Match Preview

France vs Portugal
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 11 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade de France (Paris – Saint-Denis).

Stade de France will witness one of the most anticipated clashes of the UNL fixture this season. The World Champions will take on Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. in the League A group.

Having won both their fixtures while conceding just two goals, France will be confident in finishing at the top in the group table. They will host on the back of a 4-2 win at home against Croatia in the previous UNL fixture in the schedule.

A Selecao, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Croatia and Sweden. Portugal will rely on the Juventus ace in the clash, but it is not sure how they can cope against the World Champions with Cristiano alone.

Portugal has conceded only one goal so far in the UNL fixtures this season and will visit on the back of a 0-2 win on the road against Sweden last time out in the campaign.

France vs Portugal Prediction

Mbappe is back in the French squad after his quarantine, and it will add more pace for Deschamps attacks in the game. More attribute to their attacking style means more goals in ninety minutes. Portugal has the capability to turn the match around at any time with Cristiano in the middle.

With the match sizing to be an action-packed thriller at Paris, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet from the goals area, at 1.44 odds in the game.

France has never lost to Portugal in any of their h2h clashes since 1984. However, A Selecao cannot be written away completely in the match. That’s why the draw no bet over France will probably be a suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns.
