Two nations looking to continue on their 100% start to this year’s Nations League, France will welcome defending champions Portugal to the Stade de France on Sunday night.

Keeping the morale in their camp at a real high with another free-scoring display in their 7-1 romp against Ukraine earlier in the week, Les Bleus were also last seen in this year’s tournament hitting Croatia for four on home soil.

On the flip side, while Portugal might have had to settle for a draw against fellow European heavyweights Spain in a friendly contest on Wednesday night, Sunday’s guests have started the defence of their Nations League campaign with back-to-back wins against Croatia and Sweden.

While Navegadores might face a tough test across the continent this weekend, there is no doubt that the Reds will be boosted by their famous last meeting against this weekend’s hosts.

Lifting the EURO 2016 title thanks to a shock 1-0 win against France in Paris, you might be interested to know that a similar away victory on Sunday night can be found priced at 13/5 with William Hill.

Giroud does it again

Eventually cruising their way to next year’s European Championship in routine fashion, France have really laid down a marker since opening 2020 and find themselves in the midst of a free-scoring run on form.

Opening this year’s Nations League campaign with back-to-back victories against Sweden and a 4-2 win against Croatia in Paris last month, Les Bleus really put in another rampant display earlier in the week.

Keeping the mood in their camp at a real high and still seen as one of the leading contenders this time around, Didier Deschamps’ defending world champions also have one aging talisman enjoying another international purple patch.

Leapfrogging Michel Platini in France’s all-time scoring charts and now sat second on their exclusive list, Olivier Giroud bagged a brace against Ukraine on Wednesday night and is still Deschamps’ number one choice up top.

Now bagging three strikes in back-to-back appearances for the Blues and with seven in his last nine across all formats, the Chelsea striker can be found priced at 2/1 with Unibet to extend on that tally this weekend.

Ronaldo to lead an upset?

Rattling the woodwork twice against Spain in a friendly showdown earlier in the week, Portugal would have been disappointed to have eventually settled for a 0-0 stalemate on home soil.

Never the less, securing an automatic route to next year’s European Championships without any real issues, the defending Nations League winners have opened this year’s campaign with back-to-back victories against Sweden and Croatia.

While Fernando Santos might be excited by his side now recording back-to-back clean sheets, Portugal have one attacking MVP who has only continued on yet another glittering run of form.

Playing a vital part in Juventus defending their Serie A crown over the summer, Cristiano Ronaldo already has three goals in his opening two domestic appearances and holds nothing short of a stunning international record.

Remarkably, the 35-year-old has a staggering 16 goals in just his last nine competitive fixtures for Portugal, including 11 goals during qualification for EURO 2021.
