#Euro2024: Portugal vs Czech Republic: Team News, Prediction


Portugal will be looking to win the Euros for the second time in the three editions which will also be a perfect fair well ending for Cristiano Ronaldo in what will most likely be his last European competition.

Portugal will kick off their Euro 2024 campaign in the opening game against the Czech Republic. Roberto Martinez will be hoping that his attacking prowess gives him a lot to cheer about as he looks to win the trophy in his first competition with the Portuguese.

Martinez will most likely start with Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva, and Rafael Leao. Manchester United's captain, Bruno Fernandes will also be in the middle of the park for the Portuguese.

Predicted Portugal XI: Costa; Cancelo, Pepe, Dias, Mendes; Fernandes, Palhinha, J. Neves; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Leao

Predicted Czech Republic XI: Stanek; Vitik, Holes, Hranac; Coufal, Soucek, Provod, Burak, D. Jurasek; Schick, Chytil

Prediction: The game seems close to call as there is not much difference between the teams but the influence of Ronaldo and Fernandes will be too much for the Czech to handle. We say 3-1 in favour of Portugal.
