ortugal and France go head to head in another huge Group F clash this evening as the reigning champions take on the world champions in the final night of group game action at Euro 2020.

France beat Germany in their opening game of the tournament, but a surprise 1-1 draw with Hungary leaves Les Bleus with work to do - even if four points will take them through as one of the four best third-placed teams at the very least.

As for Portugal, they left it late to beat Hungary 3-0 to start strongly, but a humbling 4-2 loss to Germany has severely hit confidence ahead of taking on the tournament favourites.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Portugal vs France is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

The match will be held at the Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest, Hungary.

Portugal vs France team news

Despite Fernando Santos’s cautious approach against Germany, Portugal were weak at the back and changes could be made against France, with midfielder Renato Sanches expected to start in place of Bernardo Silva. Joao Felix and Nuno Mendes both missed the defeat in Munich but have since trained with the rest of the squad.

Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema will be disappointed to have only found the net once so far. Didier Deschamps does have alternatives up front in Olivier Giroud, Kingsley Coman and Wissam Ben Yedder - but Ousmane Dembele was ruled out of the tournament on Monday with a knee injury.

Portugal have been uneven in their open two games, putting three past Hungary late on but shipping four to Germany as they failed to deal with Joachim Low’s full-backs.

If France can exploit them in the same manner, the world champions should win - but with some much attacking talent on both sides, expect an end-to-end game.
