For our Nations League Predictions today, we’re focussing on the heavyweight clash in Lisbon on Saturday, as European Champions Portugal take on World Champions France. Read on to find out Nations League tips & betting predictions for the tastiest tie of the weekend.

The current constitution

Portugal top group with superior goal difference

After 4 games, Portugal sit at the top of their Nations League group, level on points with France. Portugal however, have a superior goal difference having, scored 9 times and conceded only once. Cristiano Ronaldo may now be nearing the end of his international career, however the goals have been supplied by the next generation of talent including João Felix, Diogo Jota and Bernardo Silva. Ronaldo still has one goal to his name this nations League campaign however, and is full fit, Covid free and expected to be in the squad for this Saturday’s clash so our Nations League predictions put him in the starting line up.

France yet to hit full throttle in 2020

The world champions are undefeated so far in 2020, a run that has continued since the back end of 2019. However, we still get the feeling that les Blues have yet to hit their scintillating best since the post-Covid era. The 4-2 Nations League win against Croatia in September followed by their 7-1 friendly thrashing of Ukraine showed France’s goal scoring prowess, but also proved they aren’t quite as stable at the back as their hosts. Still, with a talent pool that includes Mbappe, Pogba and Griezmann, we’d back France to move up a gear at any moment.

Head to Head

These teams met in Paris the last time we had an international break, in a goalless draw that didn’t quite deliver the spectacle many Nations League Predictions experts might have wanted ahead of the kick off. However, if you look back at previous results, the 0-0 stalemate was hardly surprising. Prior to this game, the last time these teams met was the final of Euro 2016, which ended 0-0 after the 90 minutes, with Portugal going on to win by a single goal in extra time. Their previous meeting in 2015 ended in a 1-0 win for France.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions this weekend point to a slender win for the Portuguese.

Portugal to edge out as winners

It’s fair to say that this fixture hasn’t had a habit of serving up goals in the last 5 years, despite the amount of attacking talent possessed by both teams. Even with so much creativity in their ranks, the Portuguese remain a fairly pragmatic side, making it highly unlikely they’ll afford the French many opportunities to use the best capabilities of Mbappe and their other attacking players. And looking at this Nations league campaign’s stats, we can see the Portuguese are strong both in terms of defence and attack. So after holding the French to a 0-0 draw in Paris, we see the Portuguese edging past the French in Lisbon. Our betting tip for this match is therefore a bold one, as we’re backing a correct score of 1-0 to Portugal at odds of 7.5 with Bet365.
