Portugal v France – Bet365 Euro 2016 Final Odds and Promotions

Bookmaker delivers odds and offers!


Well it is down to France and Portugal for when Euro 2016 comes to an end on Sunday afternoon. The last time that France won a major tournament was at Euro 2000 when they defeated Italy with a golden goal in extra time. As France go into battle with the defensive minded and cautious Portugal on Sunday, it is probably going to be another cagey affair for Les Blues, considering that Portugal have come all this way with winning just one game in 90 minutes at Euro 2016.

France are the favourites to take the win the match, particularly with home soil advantage at the Stade de France. Les Bleus are 1/1 (2.00) to win in 90 minutes whilst Portugal are less fancied at 15/4 (4.75). Given that the two teams have had 5 draws between them at the tournament, it’s not unreasonable to think that the final could be going into extra time or penalties, and the draw is priced attractively at 11/5 (3.20) with online betting site Bet365.

France have quality oozing throughout their squad from back to front. There’s the quality Hugo Lloris between the sticks, the driving force of Paul Pogba in the middle of the park, the magical touches of Dimitri Payet to pull some string and the scoring power of Antoine Griezmann who is on course to win the Euro 2016 Golden Boot after landing a six goal haul so far at the tournament. France have tried to play exciting, attacking football and there’s been over 2.5 goals in 3 of their 5 games. bet365 are quoting 8/5 (2.60) that there will be more than 2.5 goals in the final.

The opposite can be said of the Portuguese who are naturally cautious and ventouris and that has been reflected in them averaging only 1.33 goals per game, which is a surprise considering how easy of a draw that they received in the group stage. Only 1 of their 5 games at Euro 2016 have delivered over 2.5 goals. The odds reflect this heavily, with under 2.5 goals priced at 19/40 (1.47).
