Our match prediction:
Portugal against France is a confrontation between 2 big European nations of which every football fan looks forward to. It's also a clash between 2 Real Madrid superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. The last couple of years the Portugese defense lacks lots of qualities which is one of reasons why Portugal does not reach far in tournaments. France is building up a new team which starts to get more shape every game. Both Portugal and France will start the game with a mix of talents and experienced players which makes this game interesting for the EURO 2016. The form of the day could be decisive in this game.
