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.

Fernandez’s delivery is wasted, but it’s back to Costa before long.

Leo does brilliantly to flick a back-heel pass into the legs of Conte and into the path of Mendes, but the latter’s cross is too much for Ronaldo.

Portugal have plenty of possession here, but they aren’t progressing it very quickly. Mendes tees up Leo but his cross is blocked.

More possession for the Selecao, but they haven’t bothered to probe yet.

Leao gets a good run down the left but it’s to no avail.

France try to mount a counter, but Joao Palhinha – who is close to a move to Bayern, according to reports – is there to intercept.
