7M Tips: Portugal vs FranceSunday, July 10, 2016 Source: 7M Sport
The Euro 2016 tournament final would witness that the hosts France play against Portugal at Stade de France on Sunday. Previously France faced Germany in a decisive semi-final. In the end they won 2-0 and strode into the final. French striker Antoine Griezmann were the protagonist in this match. He turned the match tendency to their favor with 2 goals. What's more, he have scored 6 goals in the scorer list. So he is likely to wrap up the Golden Boot. In the meanwhile, Portugal met dark horse Wales in another semi-final. In this clash known as Real players' conversation between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo had the last laugh. He sparkled with 1 goal and 1 assist to put the "Five Shields" into the final.
AH provided the home side -0.5 with high odds. And then the favourite's odds went up a little bit after betting. William Hill 1x2 Odds provided 1.95/3.1/4.5 combination for the initial odds. And then measures were taken to pull up the winning odds and reduce the odds for a draw. So William Hill 1x2 Odds are unlikely to believe that France could win in normal time. To a large extent, both sides would probably play extra time, and even play shoot-out to decide who would be the champion.
1.France faced the world champion Germany's challenge in semi-final. Antoine Griezmann scored 2 goals separately in the first and second half to help France win 2-0 and reach final.
2.After scoring 2 goals in semi-final, Griezmann have scored 6 goals in the Euro Cup. Therefore he is likely to take the Golden Boot of this tournament.
3.France had qualified into Euro Cup finals twice in history, and they succeeded in grabbing the title in both time.
4.Currently France's squad is intact. Thanks to their victory in normal time in the last 2 games, the players didn't consume too much energy.
5.Apart from goalless draw against Switzerland in the last group stage match, France scored at least 2 goals per match in their rest 5 games. With 13 goals in hand, La Coqgaulois are the best attacking team in the tournament.
1.Portugal entertained "The Dragon" Wales in the semi-final. With Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani's goals, Portugal won 2-0 and progressed into the final.
2.Cristiano Ronaldo once again played a key role in winning the semi-final. He showed brilliant competitive form with a header to break the stalemate and an assist in Nani's goal.
3.France played against Portugal 24 times in history. According to the statistics, both sides drew only once. As for the rest results, France took absolute advantages by winning 18 games, and Portugal only won 5. In their last clash in September last year, France grabbed a narrow 1-0 win against Portugal.
4.It remains doubtful that whether Portugal's main midfield defender Pepe could fit for the final or not. Midfield partners Bruno Alves and Jose Fonte's movement is not fast enough to catch up with France's counter attack. If Portugal got trapped into counter attack, they would fall into a passive position.
