France vs. Portugal prediction: 2024 Euro Quarterfinals odds, picks, best bets

Could it be the end of the illustrious UEFA European Championship career for a once-in-a-generation talent, Cristiano Ronaldo?

Oddsmakers at Bet365 Sportsbook think so, installing Portugal as +120 underdogs in their quarterfinal match against France.

Portugal skated past Slovenia by the slimmest of margins in the Round of 16, winning on penalty kicks after Ronaldo missed a PK of his own in regulation.

Ronaldo sobbed after the miss, realizing that it could have cost his country the victory and, in turn, ended his EUFA career.

Kylian Mbappé hopes to have the honor of shutting his door Friday afternoon.

France vs. Portugal prediction

While Mbappe is surely one of the best players in the world, his form is of semi-concern, all things considered.

He’s scored just once in three Euro matches he’s played.

Still, France is among the best teams in the Euro, and while Mbappe’s form is of enough concern to push them off favorite status to win the tournament (third-best odds as of Friday morning), it’s still hard to see Portugal getting through them.

Portugal has one of the older teams in the world, featuring Pepe, 41, and Ronaldo, 39.

France is younger and should be able to push Portugal on the attack.

Portuguese keeper Diogo Costa has only had to make six saves combined, as the team has been able to push its opponents into attack mode throughout the tournament.

Ronaldo looks to be in a sad state again Friday, this time for good, as France wins outright.
