Preview: Portugal vs France

Currently joint-tied on points but top of Group 3 thanks to their superior goal difference, EURO 2016 and inaugural Nations League winners Portugal will be looking to consolidate their position as group leaders when they lock horns with reigning World Cup winners France on Saturday. The last time the Seleção and Les Bleus met, both giants cancelled each other out, resulting in a scoreless draw. Notably, that marked the second straight stalemate in which Portugal failed to find the back of the net, but it quickly became the last as they went on to crush floundering Sweden 3-0 on matchday four and now, come into this upcoming game having easily swept aside minnows Andorra 7-0.

It's been a pretty good 2020 so far for Portugal, who are unbeaten in all six games across all comps (four wins, two draws) and naturally will be looking to retain their Nations League title. What's especially notable, though, is the fact that Fernando Santos's men have only conceded one goal in this calendar year, and that was during a 4-1 mauling of 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia on matchday one of this tournament. Yes, three of those shut-outs took place against a rudderless Sweden (both home and away), and then during the lopsided affair versus Andorra, but the Seleção also maintained clean sheets during a friendly tie with neighboring Spain as well as the much anticipated show-down with France last month.

Not a bad record, especially considering the tools France do have in their arsenal when it comes to attack. Meanwhile, Didier Deschamps's side arrive in Portugal having suffered what is now their first loss of 2020 - a shock 2-0 reversal to minnows Finland. While this defeat is only in a friendly, it's still concerning as prior to the defeat, France had never lost to Finland in eight prior meetings, and in fact, had a perfect 100 per cent winning record. Moreover, Deschamps's squad had been unbeaten in their last 12 matches across all competitions, with wins in ten of those, so the loss marks their first defeat of 2020 and their first since June 8, 2019, when they lost 2-0 to Turkey during a EURO 2020 (now 2021) qualifying match.

Both teams are certainly not in danger of relegation to League B, with a comfortable seven point margin over Croatia who sits well back in third spot. However as things stand, it's France who will probably be feeling a bit more pressure after their bad result from their friendly, as those matches are used as a way to fine-tune things ahead of bigger matches. That being said, Portugal's record against Les Bleus isn't the strongest - to date, the Seleção have won just six of their last 26 meetings with their opponents, while losing a very disappointing 18. Of course, historical records are just stats, and with football being quite unpredictable, who knows really what will happen when these two big sides come face to face in a highly anticipated tie on Saturday?

Team news: Portugal vs France

Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo will definitely return to the starting XI after only being given a cameo appearance during the friendly with Andorra; despite this, the 35-year-old was still able to add to his growing goals tally. First-choice goalkeeper Rui Patricio is also expected to be reinstated to the starting line-up.

France: Anthony Martial, Antoine Griezmann and N'Golo Kante were among the key players left on the bench during the shock loss to Finland, and all will be expected to feature in this must-win tie. However, it will be interesting to see how Paul Pogba, who did feature, but was pulled off during the second half, gets involved after a disappointing showing from the Manchester United star.

Wissam Ben Yedder is out due to a positive COVID-19 test, along with Houssem Aouar due to an injury. Deschamps will be really hoping to get both Kylian Mbappe and Benjamin Pavard involved in this game, despite both suffering injuries while on club duty with PSG and Bayern respectively. Although Kingsley Coman reportedly hurt his ankle during training, the recent Champions League winner should be able to shake it off in time for this game.
