Get all the information you need to know in the second poster for the quarter-finals of Euro 2024, which will pit Portugal against France on Friday on the grass at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg.

What is the way to Portugal?

In Group F, Portugal started with a stunning win over the Czech Republic (2-1). On June 22, the Portuguese followed up their second, more convincing win over Turkey (0-3). Just before half an hour had passed, the break had already come, and Bruno Fernandes scored the third goal after the break. Finally, Portugal, who had already secured first place in their group, lost their third match, losing to Georgia (2-0). In the round of 16, Roberto Martinez's men had to wait for penalties to eliminate Slovenia (0-0, 3-0).

What is the way to France?

France started with a narrow 1-0 win over Austria. The Blues were then forced to draw their final two group games. Didier Deschamps' men first failed to find fault against the Netherlands (0-0), before slipping to a 1-1 defeat to Poland, after Kylian Mbappé opened the scoring from the penalty spot. The Blues, who finished second in Group D behind Austria, qualified for Belgium in the last 16. Another hurdle was overcome, although it had to wait until the 85th minute for the French to finally win (1-0).

What are the results of the direct confrontations?

In history, France and Portugal have faced each other 28 times. The results have largely been in favour of the Blues, with 19 wins to just six for the Portuguese, while there have also been three draws between these two teams. The French have scored 52 goals to Portugal's 31. In recent years, the encounter has inevitably remained in the minds of Didier Deschamps' men. This was on July 10, 2016 in the Euro final. The Portuguese won the title after extra time, with the goal scored by the now-retired Eder.
