EURO 2016: Poland vs Portugal

Poland vs Portugal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first match of the Quarter-finals of the EURO 2016, Poland take on Portugal at Stade Vélodrome, in Marseille. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Poland vs Portugal.


Poland reached the Quarter-finals of EURO 2016 after they eliminated Switzerland in the 1/8 finals. The match was finished without winner 1-1, even in the extra-time, so penalties decided to push Poland through in the next phase, where they face Portugal. They were better side against Swiss side, especially in the first half-time, but in the second half-time, Switzerland made a big pressure and managed to score. Against Portugal, Poland have to play much better and organized if they want to reach the Semi-finals. Their defence is pretty good. In the group phase Poland didn’t concede a single goal and against Switzerland they conceded the first goal on this tournament. On the other side, their attack is not impressive. In the four matches on EURO they scored only 3 goals, so if they want to eliminated Portugal, they will have to play more organized in the attack. Robert Lewandowski picked up a minor injury against Switzerland, but he should be ready for Portugal.

Portugal weren’t impressive so far on this tournament. They reach the 1/8 finals after they finished the group phase at the 3rd position and went through as one of the best 3rd teams. In the 1/8 finals they eliminated Croatia 0-1 in the extra-time with a late goal and it was their first victory on EURO 2016. Portugal are favorites against Poland and if they reached the Semi-finals, they will play against winners of the match between Wales v Belgium. Portugal are little bit tired after they played extra-time in the previous round, but they will have one day more to rest. Their defender José Fonte has announced that they will not have an easy job against Polish side. “The Polish team are a very strong side. They have conceded just once in the tournament. I expect a very tough game.” – said Fonte.

The winner of this match will play against the winner of the game between Wales or Belgium!
