Portugal is welcoming France to Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica in round 5 in the UEFA Nations League.
Portugal is in great form, and they have lost only 1 of their last 22 games. In the Nations League, Portugal is at the top of their group with 10 points, 9 scored goals, and only 1 conceded goal. Portugal is undefeated in the Nations League. Earlier this week, Portugal was playing against Andorra in a friendly game, and they have won that match 7-0. In their latest Nations League game, Portugal was playing against Sweden at home, and they have had 49% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. Portugal was the better team in this match, and they have deservedly won this game 3-0. Jota has been Portugal’s best player in this Nations League with 3 scored goals, while Ronaldo added 2 more goals. There are no reported injuries in Portugal as of right now. I’ve mentioned this before, Portugal is a different team with and without Ronaldo, and in my opinion, they are playing better soccer without Ronaldo. There is plenty of talent in this Portugal team, and they are in fantastic form.
France was playing against Finland in a friendly game earlier this week, and surprisingly, France has lost this match 0-2. In their last Nations League match, France was playing against Croatia on the road, and they have had 48% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. France was leading 0-1 at half time, but Croatia tied the score in the 64th minute. In the 79th minute Pogba, Digne, and Mbappe combined for another goal for France. France has won this match 1-2. Mbappe and Griezmann are the leading goalscorers for France with 2 goals each, while Upamecano and Giroud added 1 goal each. Pavard is the only injured player for France at this time, and he will most likely miss this match. Despite this loss against Finland, France is in a good form, and they are in second place in their Nations League group with 10 points, 7 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals, the same amount of points as Portugal. France is a team filled with superstars, and they can play great soccer on both ends, but their defense is prone to mistakes, and they can concede a goal against any team out there.
This is a game for the first place in this group, and I think it will be a fantastic match. Both Portugal and France are in great form, and they are both scoring a lot of goals. The previous game between Portugal and France ended in a 0-0 draw, but I just don’t see it happening against because a lot of players are in good goalscoring form. I expect goals on both sides.
