Euro 2024: Portugal/Czech Republic: Only one PSG player in the Portugal squad?

With four Paris Saint-Germain players in their squad, Portugal kicks off their Euro 2024 campaign on Tuesday evening against the Czech Republic from 9pm. The match will be broadcast on TF1 and beIN Sports 1, but there are major doubts about the lineup Roberto Martinez will play in. We do inventory.

Portugal, which won the title in 2016, will open its campaign in the European Championship 2024 on Tuesday evening against the Czech Republic, after achieving a perfect campaign in the qualifiers with ten victories in the same number of matches. On the other hand, the Seleção das Cuenas faced some difficulties during their preparatory matches, including a defeat against Croatia in a friendly match on June 8 and a setback against Slovenia last March.

However, Portugal still came away with a 3-0 win over Ireland on June 11, particularly thanks to a brace from its captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who will start on Tuesday evening against the Czech Republic. As for the rest, it is very hazy because the Portuguese media do not agree with the tactical plan. Roberto Martinez has alternated in recent months between a three-man defense and a four-man defense and his selection for this evening has yet to be cleared.

The Portuguese press was divided over the composition of Portugal

According to Portuguese sports daily Record, Portugal will present itself in a 3-4-1-2 formation with only one PSG player in the starting lineup: Danilo Pereira, at left midfield. According to the record, there is no Nuno Mendes, no Vitenha and even less so Gonçalo Ramos.

Possible formation of Portugal by record: Costa – Dias, Pepe, Danilo – Dalot, Balinha, Fernandes, Cancelo – Bernardo Silva – Jota, Cristiano Ronaldo

In O Jogo's team, we also rely on a back three, but with Gonçalo Inacio replacing Danilo Pereira in the left midfield position. The Pro-Porto daily did not see any PSG player starting the match.

Possible formation of Portugal according to O Jogo: Costa – Dias, Pepe, Inacio – Dalot, Neves, Fernandes, Cancelo – Bernardo Silva, Cristiano Ronaldo, Leao.

But in A Bola, we rely more on a 4-3-3 formation with two PSG players at the start of the match: Nuno Mendes as left-back and Vitinha as relay player.

Possible formation of Portugal according to A Bola: Costa – Cancelo, Pepe, Dias, Nuno Mendes – Fernandez, Palinha, Vitinha – Bernardo Silva, Cristiano Ronaldo, Felix

The Portugal vs Czech Republic match will be broadcast unencrypted on TF1 from 9pm and is therefore available on TF1. Streaming here. The match will also be broadcast live on beIN Sports 1, which requires a subscription.
