There will be fireworks when Portugal and Czech Republic square off against each other at Red Bull Arena in their EURO 2024 opener.

A Selecao are seen as one of the main favourites to win the showpiece tournament in Germany, but their performance in a warm-up game against Croatia (1-2) was anything but good.

The likes of Renato Sanches, William Carvalho, and Raphael Guerreiro have been omitted, but all Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Joao Felix, and Bernardo Silva made the cut.

The Czechs, on the other hand, are determined to claim a major scalp in Tuesday’s clash, but given the number of high-profile players in Roberto Martinez’s team, home win should be considered.

A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek, who has netted 12 goals in 68 appearances for the Czech Republic national team.

In their last meeting at the European Championship finals, back in 2012, Portugal defeated Czech Republic 1-0, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the only goal of the match.

This match will be played on 18/06/2024 at 20:00

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended Pick: Turkey to Win.
