Portugal will lie Poland
Portugal will lie Poland
The time has come for the first quarterfinal of Euro 2016. He opposed the teams of Poland and Portugal, and the beginning of the match is on Thursday from 22:00 pm. To "Stade Vélodrome" in Marseille. Poland showed good games here Tournament, but at this stage must be much more than good to succeed. Portugal played 4 matches hesitant, but still in the phase of the quarter-finals and will fight with all his strength to stay on the team of Euro 2016. The team that wins this match will reach the semi-final and there will meet the winner of the match Wales - Belgium.
Poland managed to keep up with Switzerland in the previous phase. Poles led comfortably goal lead but were leveling 10 minutes before the end, which sent the game into overtime and shootout. Fortunately for the Poles, their opponent mistaking a penalty and thus Poland ranks after scoring five own. "Polish Battalion" showed very strong game, but the game of the team at times was quite poor and the players allowed the opponent to make a lot of shots on goal. If the Swiss did not benefit from this greater degree, the team of Portugal has attack that knows how to punish. Coach Adam Navalka should pay attention to this aspect of the game of his team. The good news is that goalkeeper Voyscheh Schezhni will probably take part in the match, but after the best games of Fabianski into the doorframe, the choice before the coach will be really difficult. He returned to the young offensive player Bartos Kapustka, who was punished. One player who left very good impressions Arkadiusz Millikan's problems in the ankle but might be ready before the game. Robert Lewandowski has no goal of Euro 2016 and will seek such in this important match. Poland does his best performance of Eurofinal and will undoubtedly want to continue as much as possible ahead.
Portugal out of the second round after late drama against Croatia. "Sailors" decided the outcome of the meeting with the late goal a few minutes before the end of the second period of 15 minutes, then came penalties. By now the tournament, Portugal has only draws in normal time. 3 goals in groups and this match against the Croats, who finished 0-0 in normal time. Coach Fernando Santos made quite good progress in the last game with the release of Jose Fonte in central defense instead of Ricardo Carvalho. After a good performance, Fonte probably will again start as a starter. Midfielders João Moutinho and Andre Gomes were problems, and defender Rafa Gereyro, but their participation in the game is rather positive. The nice thing about coach is that no punishment. Portugal played seemingly not so attractive match against Croatia, but eventually won, and that's the most important thing in football. Portugal has strong offensive players like Ronaldo, Nani, Quaresma, who are the main, but Renato Sanchez and Joao Mario also perform quite well. "Sailors" able to earn this type of matches, but excellent, complete team of Poland, can bring them a lot of trouble.
When we look back at the history of clashes between the two teams, we'll see that they have 10 previous matches in which Portugal leads by 4 to 3 win over Poland and three matches have ended in a tie. In qualifying before Euro 2008, two teams were in a group and Poland won as host and took equal away to Portugal then. Otherwise, the last time these two teams met in 2012, when a friendly match ended at 0-0. Things are very different now. The stakes semifinal and no one error. Poland is very articulate team, team play very tactically correct, but the problem is that it allows the opponent to create situations and make shots. Just this fact will give an advantage to Portugal, which may not have the best defense of the championship, but the attack team has a lot of class and matches so far have seen that the Portuguese created quite positions. If all these situations failed to bring victory in normal time for Portugal to date, the opinion of our team is that in this match Portugal will benefit from the current positions and win.
