Meeting statistics

The current form of Portugal

Fernando Santos’ tenure came to an end with a dismal quarterfinal exit from the FIFA World Cup 2022. Earlier, Santos had defeated host France in the final to win Portugal’s first major international trophy at Euro 2016. Roberto Martínez, his successor, wasn’t as fortunate in leading Belgium’s “Golden Generation”, with his biggest accomplishment coming in the 2018 World Cup bronze medal. But ever since the former Wigan manager took over with Portugal, everything has gone according to plan. He’s certainly happy to be placed in Group F with Georgia as a rookie, Turkey, and the Czech Republic—now coached by Ivan Hašek.

In light of their qualifying performance, the Portuguese are clear favorites in this match. “The Team of the Escutcheons” finished first in Group J of the Euro 2024 qualification tournament, undefeated, thanks to their unwavering and merciless style. They only gave up two goals while scoring an amazing 36 goals, or 3.6 goals per game. Portugal made history by being the eighth national team to win a 100% record and advance to a European Championship. After France (1992 and 2004), the Czech Republic (2000), Germany, Spain (both 2012), England (2016), and Italy and Belgium (both 2020), this was the ninth occurrence. They also surrendered the fewest goals and scored the most goals overall. Ronaldo, their mainstay and most renowned player, finished with 10 goals, while Bruno Fernandes netted six. The squad also has a number of well-known players, such as Diogo Jota, Bernardo Silva, and Rúben Dias, who were used throughout their productive qualifying run.

Despite their previous 1-2 loss to Croatia, The Team of the Escutcheons is coming into Euro 2024 fresh off a 3-0 victory over Ireland.

The current form of the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic, on the other hand, has also been winning lately, actually their last five games, and has scored 16 goals during this time, seven of which came against Malta. They’ve scored in each of the last seven games.

In Group E of the Euro 2024 qualifying tournament, the Czech Republic and Albania were tied for first place, but due to a weaker head-to-head record, they were ranked second. They only suffered a single setback, a 0-3 away loss to Albania. To lead their attack, they will look to West Ham player Tomáš Souček.

Head-to-head

Since the Czech Republic gained its independence, Portugal and the Czech Republic met five times at Euros. The Team of the Escutcheons earned themselves two wins. Portugal had won their last four games against the Czechs after losing their first head-to-head at Euro 1996, which is most remembered for Karel Poborský’s magnificent chip against Vítor Baía.

Match analytics

Portugal will be anticipated to start the competition with a win because, along with France and England, they are among the favorites to win, and their great defensive plays should ensure that they won’t concede a goal.

We suggest the following bet for this match, going in the favor of Portugal: Half Time/Full Time and Total – Win1/Win1 and Over (2.5) with odds of 3.05 on SOL Casino.
