It’s Euro 2016 Final at last. As we predicted, Portugal vs France will be the last match to watch for this Euro cup. A win from the behind, Portugal has rid themselves of their lackluster performances while France has maintained their winning streak. Between the two, who will take home the silverware and who will have to settle for second best? Find our Euro 2016 final prediction below.
Portugal played with a mission against Wales, and now they are on their path to vengeance. After a rather disappointing loss to Greece in Euro 2004, Portugal is now onto their second major final. The last two Euro Cup has seen Portugal give up at the quarters and semi-finals, respectively. However, now that they’re in the finals once again, Portugal has a chance to snatch away the silverware from host country France and pass on the shame they first tasted at Greece’s hands in 2004.
The host country has stayed true to their winning path. Never losing on home soil, France has kept their fellow countrymen’s head up and proud for their football team. Antoine Griezmann made history with his golden boot and followed it with two brilliant goals that ushered their team into the finals. As France beats world champion Germany, will they be able to keep up their competitive streak and lay claim to the Euro 2016 title?
Euro 2016 Final Prediction: Portugal vs France
The statistics only differ in the goals made by the two finalists. While Portugal has emerged with an effective strategy that undermined all their opponents in the important stages, their disappointing performance in the group stage has put their overall efficiency as a team into question. Meanwhile, France’s statistics shows that minimal their effort may be, but the output yields the quality and quantity they need in order to succeed.
While Ronaldo may have equalled Platini’s Euro goal record, his goal efficiency this tournament is far too low to bring Portugal their much-coveted Euro title. Meanwhile, if France’s Griezmann, with his golden boot record and goals, continues his stellar performance, France will see itself repeat its 1984 performance—winning the Euro title and making it even sweeter by winning it in their own country.
Our Euro 2016 Final prediction says France will be the Euro 2016 titleholders.
Do not miss the final Euro 2016 match as Portugal and France play for the title. The two teams are scheduled to play on Sunday, 10 July, 9:00PM CET (Monday, July 11, 5:00AM NSW) at Saint-Denis.
