Portugal v France Tips and Betting Offers, Euro 2016 final, Sunday 10th July 2016
Will France be celebrating another major international title in Paris on Sunday night? Cristiano Ronaldo and co. are lining up to stop them, but can they succeed where Germany failed? Many have said that the semi-final in Marseille was effectively the final, and the French flew through that game. It’s going to take a huge twist for Portugal to take the European Championship trophy.

Ahead of this one, France are 21/20 favourites with 888Sport, while they’re 4/9 with Betfair to lift the trophy. Portugal are 15/4 outsiders with Bet365, having failed to really impress at this tournament. They’ve just about dragged themselves to the final, but do they have what it takes to cause a massive shock? They’ll need Ronaldo at his absolute best if they’re to avoid the fate they suffered in 2004.
Portugal know the pain of losing a Euro final on home soil. They were upset by Greece in Lisbon 12 years ago, which left Ronaldo literally upset. The pictures of his tears that night still pop up today, and he’ll be desperate to avoid that fate again. He even referenced it after the match against Wales, saying that he wanted to be crying tears of joy this time around. It doesn’t seem like many expect that to happen.
Portugal v France Betting Tips
While France took a while to get going here, Portugal are yet to really start. The French kicked in to gear as they blew away Iceland, then they overcame Germany to make the final. Portugal’s win over Wales in the semi doesn’t quite match up, and they were far from impressive. While their tournament has been built on grinding out results and just getting through, can they really do that against France?
They have possibly the strongest squad at this tournament, a side packed with talent and a bench full of options. From their £100million midfielder Paul Pogba through to top scorer Antoine Griezmann, this French side just has too much quality. Now that they’ve clicked and reached the final, we can’t see anything stopping Les Bleus in Paris. We’re going for a French win within 90 minutes, and we’re backing them at 21/20 with 888Sport.
Griezmann is a huge part of why France made it this far. He’s scored crucial goals all the way through this tournament. From his late goal to break the deadlock against Albania to his braces against the Republic of Ireland and Germany, the Atletico man has been huge. He’s hit six goals this summer and he’s clearly player of the tournament, but we don’t think he’s done yet. We’re backing the attacker to get a seventh goal on Sunday, and he’s 13/8 to score any time with Sky Bet.
