The second quarter-final of Euro 2024 is another blockbuster tie pitting 2018 World Cup winners France against 2016 European champions Portugal.

Didier Deschamps’ men managed to reach the last eight without conceding a single goal in open play. Two own goals and a Kylian Mbappe penalty were enough to get them through Test matches against Austria, the Netherlands, Poland and Belgium. Although their narrow win over Belgium in the last-16 lacked quality and excitement, the French players were heartened by several missed chances and attributed to Mbappe rediscovering his form from a broken nose.

In comparison, Portugal had to come through a penalty shootout to beat Slovenia in the round of 16. Roberto Martinez’s side struggled to make an opening in their first knockout match with Cristiano Ronaldo.

With Mbappe taking on Ronaldo this match will be a battle of the generations, but both sides know improvements are needed if they hope to get the job done tonight.

Penalties: Portugal 0-0 France

Coin circulation is coming. It looks like Ronaldo won it, so penalties will be taken in the Portugal end, but it looks like Ronaldo gave France the first penalty.

Within minutes of Dembele going up.

So the scary place kicks in. Can Costa repeat his heroics from Monday?

Mbappe off, Fernandes off, Ronaldo on. Which side is 15 minutes from the heartbeat?

Extra time: Portugal 0-0 France

Ronaldo wins with a header from a long ball, but Kante is there to cover. France counter but it’s a little half-hearted and Hernandez’s ball gets a red shirt.
