The high voltage clash on Wednesday evening comes in the form of holders Portugal taking on the World Cup winners France. The outcome of this game is important for both the teams to know their placement in Group F and moving to the next stage of Euro 2020. Never mind a repeat of the Euro 2016 final. 


Neither of the two got their desired result on Matchday 2 making this clash even more significant. Resilient defending from Hungary robbed France of all three points in a game of missed chances with the underdogs taking an admirable lead in the first half. Griezmann rescued a point but it piled up the frustration for the entire French fraternity. They have to do the hard way against Portugal to confirm qualification to the round of 16. 


Portugal, on the other hand, were humbled by Germany 4-2 in an emphatic display from the hosts. Fernando Santos's plan to contain the German attack didn't end well and they now hang in balance. The Selecao scored two goals through Cristiano Ronaldo, one goal and an assist, whose legacy in big stages continued. Portugal will be looking at him again to rescue them against France and overturn his frustrating evening, at least personally, of the 2016 Euro final. Though, Ronaldo demands the outcome of his team that night. Although, Ronaldo have never scored against France.

Injuries & Suspensions 


Joao Felix and Nuno Mendes remain the two main absentees for this clash for Portugal. While Mendes plays second fiddle to first-choice left-back Raphael Guerreiro, Felix's absence is a major concern in the attack. It significantly limits Fernando Santos's option to change his frontline in times of need. The forward from Atletico Madrid is suffering from an hamstring pull. 


Lucas Hernandez sat out the Hungary game carrying a knock watching Lucas Digne starring in the left back role. He is fit to play against Portugal. Hence, France have no such worries to think about and got the full team to recharge themselves after an unwanted points drop against Hungary. Didier Deschamps is highly unlikely to make changes to the starting eleven despite the result of having an abundance of talent in each position. Hiss message will be to throw away the complacent mindset and be level-headed against a top calibre opposition. 


Portugal vs France Predicted Lineups :


Portugal: Rui Patricio; Nelson Semedo, Ruben Dias, Pepe, Raphael Guerreiro, Danilo Pereira, Renato Sanches, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Cristiano  Ronaldo, Diego Jota


France: Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael  Varane, Presnel Kimpembe, Theo Hernandez, N'Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, Corentin Tolisso, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema 


Portugal vs France Head to Head 


The clash between Portugal and France had happened 27 times in the past. Les Bleus have tasted the most number of victories in this clash with 19 compared to only 6 of Portugal. France also got the better of their opposition in last year's Nations League clash in which a solitary strike for N'Golo Kante was enough for the win. However, The Selecao fans will always cherish the 2016 Euro final night when they finally beat the French after 40 long years. A landmark moment.  



POR vs FRA Dream11 Fantasy Team 



GK: Hugo Lloris (Fra)


DEF: Nelson Semedo (Por), Pepe (Por), Raphael Varane (Fra), Lucas Hernandez (Fra) 


MID:  N'Golo Kante (Fra), Renato Sanches (Por), Bruno Fernandes (Por), Paul Pogba (Fra), 


FW: Kylian Mbappe (Fra), Cristiano Ronaldo (Por) 


Hugo Lloris remains a commendable goalkeeper between the post and considering Rui Patricio's form it is safe to take the Frenchman instead. Benjamin Pavard had a game to forget against Hungary so Portugal's attacking right-back Semedo makes the cut. Hernandez's return and Guerreiro poor performance last term, scoring an own goal, makes the choice obvious. Renato Sanches will get a worthy start so he makes the team. Kylian Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo is a scary pair in the attack. 


Match Prediction: Portugal 1-2 France 


Portugal is expected to play better football than they did against Germany but Fernando Santos will stick to his defensive style of play despite the urge of doing something else. France won't leave this second chance of seeking the revenge of the 2016 final and a recharged attacking force will be too hot to handle for Fernando Santos's men. Les Bleus will top the group as a result.  Portugal have to wait for their qualification from third place as Germany is expected to win their game.
