Portugal vs France Prediction
A 1-1 draw for the teams. Both teams currently lie at the top of their UEFA Nations League group with 10 points from 4 games, and this stalemate is likely to be carried into the match this week as the teams are very evenly matched. A draw would however be an unconventional result for this fixture, as the two sides have only drawn twice in their previous 26 encounters.
