After failing 4-2 against Germany, Portugal are in need of points if they want to remain in the tournament. Now, they have to beat France, as they did in the UEFA Euro 2016 final. However, this time things are different and Les Bleus, not only are world champions, but one of the most consolidated teams.
A draw would do for Fernando Santo’s side, and after the draw between Hungary and France, Portugal might feel confident to get one. After Monday results, France, with four points, is already into the last 16 but they will want to recover the good sensations against a tough rival.
