Euro 2016 Final : Portugal vs France (Predict and WIN)

It has all come down to this. Portugal versus France in the Euro 2016 final, with Antoine Griezmann and Cristiano Ronaldo facing off in Paris.

For Ronaldo and Portugal (who have lost their past 10 games in a row to Les Bleus), they will be aiming to go one further than in 2004, when they were stunned by Greeze in the final. Hosts France won this tournament on home soil back in 1982 and the World Cup too while at home, in 1998. But can they do it again? The question on everybody’s lips is ‘Will Cristiano Ronaldo help Portugal win their first major tournament or will Paul Pogba, Dimitri Payet, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud do it for the hosts?’

Portugal have made it this far due to an impressive defensive resilience that ensures their matches never get away from them, but they are underdogs as it were.  Despite being forced to extra-time against both Croatia and Poland, Portugal have faced just eight shots in the knockout stages in 330 minutes of action (and they have conceded just once).
