Portugal – France
Portugal faces France at the Puskas Arena in Budapest in another magnificent clash from Group F of Euro 2020. Both teams didn’t win their previous matches in the competition, so that’s an important fixture for them. Let us give you a preview for this match.
The current European champions Portugal kicked off their Euro 2020 campaign with a win, but in their second game they conceded a heavy 2-4 defeat from the hands of Germany. Selecao had the bad luck to score two own goals in the first half when Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerreiro put the ball in their own net. Cristiano Ronaldo and Diogo Jota scored for the Portuguese team, but at the end Portugal were two goals behind.
With three points from two matches played, Portugal need to record a positive result here. For this team it’d be a massive failure if they don’t reach the knockout phase of the European Championship. Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva must step up and raise their game against the current world champion.
World champions France made a surprising mistake in their second game at the Euro 2020 when they only won a point against the underdog in this group Hungary. The match in Budapest ended with a 1-1 draw which disappointed the French fans. Antoine Griezmann saved Les Bleus from a defeat, but France’s performance was surely underwhelming to say at least.
The bad news for the French team come from the situation with winger Ousmane Dembele. The Barcelona star could miss the remaining of the European Championship as he’s feeling a pain in his knee. Dembele entered the pitch in the second half against Hungary, but it seems that this competition could be over for him.
That’s our preview for the Euro 2020 match in group F between Portugal and France – the current European and the current world champion. We just can’t wait to see it!
