Preview

Portugal continue their preparation for Euro 2024, with the continental powerhouses taking to the field in their final warm-up fixture before kicking off their European Championship campaign. The 2016 champions face the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday at the Estádio Municipal de Aveiro in Aveiro as Roberto Martinez's men aim to return to winning ways.

Cristiano and Co. enter this game on the back of their recent defeat against Croatia on home soil, a game the five-time Ballon d'Or winner watched helplessly from the bench.

The 39-year-old icon was an unused substitute as his nation fell to a 2-1 defeat, with Luka Modric and Ante Budimir scoring for Croatia while Liverpool's Diogo Jota got Portugal's consolatory goal.

While this was their second defeat in their last three outings, losing 2-0 to Slovenia in a friendly, A Seleção have won every single competitive match they have played since their 2022 FIFA World Cup quarterfinal exit at the hands of Morroco.

In fact, Roberto Martinez's side were the only team to complete the Euro 2024 qualifiers with a perfect record, winning all 10 matches. This includes home and away victories over Serbia, their closest rival in that group.

Regardless, with Euro 2024 fast approaching, Portugal will need to pick up steam immediately. The one-time champions kick off their campaign in exactly a week, taking on the Czech Republic on June 18 in Group F. Will Cristiano and Co. end their winless run in their final warm-up match?

Unlike Portugal, the Republic of Ireland failed to qualify for the European Championship for the second tournament in a row, instead finishing fourth in their qualifying group.

The Boys in Green were grouped with France and the Netherlands, two of the favorites to win Euro 2024, and were thus never going to secure automatic qualification. However, Ferguson and Co. missed out on the third spot and a ticket to the playoffs to Greece.

Additionally, form does not favor the visitors, with John O'Shea's men winning only once in their last five outings. Additionally, their last 15 matches have produced only five wins, which pales in comparison to their opponents. 

However, the Republic of Ireland have one thing over the Portuguese: they enter this tie on the back of a win. The Irish beat Hungary 2-1 in their most recent fixture, with Norwich striker Adam Idah getting on the scoresheet. Will the Boys in Green pull off something similar against the Euro 2016 champions?

Team news

Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to get some minutes ahead of what looks to be his final European Championship. Highly-rated Benfica starlet Joao Neves will also be hoping for minutes but will face stiff competition from Premier League stars Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva. Joao Cancelo and Diogo Jota could also get the nod.

Republic of Ireland: Adam Idah should lead the line while Troy Parrott will be hoping for some minutes, either off the bench or alongside Idah. Seamus Coleman will likely captain the side. Dara O'Shea, Matthew Doherty, and Shane Duffy also look set to feature.

Key stats

  • This will be the 16th encounter between these two nations.

  • Portugal boast the superior head-to-head record, winning eight of their previous 15 clashes.

  • The Republic of Ireland, on the flip side, have four wins to their name, with three encounters ending in draws.

  • A defeat on Tuesday would see Roberto Martinez lose back-to-back games for the first time as Portugal manager.
