Portugal’s players have a couple of reasons for confidence when they arrive in Germany to compete in this summer’s European Championship. First, they sit at odds of +900 to win the tournament. And they also secured a perfect record of 10 wins in 10 games during the qualifying campaign, scoring 36 goals in the process. This could be Cristiano Ronaldo’s last international tournament and his last chance at adding another trophy on the international stage. Below, we cover Portugal’s 2024 Euro odds, their fixtures, and more.

Portugal’s odds to win Euro 2024

Only four teams have shorter odds: England, France, Germany, and Spain. That reflects the depth of quality within the Portuguese squad, which includes several world-class players.

However, Portugal has struggled at major tournaments in recent years. The team suffered a shocking defeat to Morocco in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals, so these players will have something to prove when they descend upon Germany this summer.

Portugal vs. Czech Republic odds & betting preview

Portugal could have a psychological edge over the Czech Republic when these teams clash in Leipzig on June 18. They ended up in the same UEFA Nations League group in 2022, and Portugal won both games convincingly, defeating the Czech Republic 2-0 in Lisbon and 4-0 in Prague.

However, Portugal cannot afford to be complacent. The Czech Republic lacks the sort of quality that Portugal can call upon, but it is nevertheless a tough, resilient team, so the likes of Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes will need to be at their best.

Portugal’s potential path to victory

Portugal is the favorite to win Group F, with odds of . If it finishes on top of its group, Roberto Martínez’s team will be a heavy favorite to win its Round of 16 clash against one of the third-place teams from another group. Portugal’s most likely quarterfinal opponent would then be the Netherlands (Group D).

Both teams look evenly matched, so that could develop into a tight, tense battle. The Dutch arguably have a stronger defense, whereas Portugal is stronger in attack. If Portugal manages to prevail, it could face Spain (Group B) or Germany (Group A) in the semifinals. Potential opponents in the final include England and France, as both teams are likely to land on the opposite side of the bracket as Portugal.

Why Portugal could win Euro 2024

Portugal has a strong blend of youth and experience in its ranks. Veterans like Pepe and Ronaldo led their team to a famous victory at Euro 2016, and they will be eager to secure more silverware this summer. Youngsters like João Neves, António Silva, and Gonçalo Ramos will provide an injection of pace and vitality.

What could stop Portugal from winning Euro 2024?

Manager Roberto Martínez failed to win any trophies while leading Belgium’s golden generation from 2016 to 2022. He had an embarrassment of elite talent at his disposal, but Belgium always fell short. Will he fare any better with this technically gifted Portuguese team? Only time will tell.

Key player: Cristiano Ronaldo

Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, João Félix, Diogo Jota, and Rafael Leão are all wonderfully talented players, while defensive lynchpin Rúben Dias is vital to the team. However, the focus will inevitably be upon Ronaldo as the veteran striker gears up for what could be his last major international tournament. He is no longer as mobile as he was in 2016, but he is still a world-class finisher.

How has Portugal performed in past Euros?

Portugal defied the odds to win Euro 2016. It was a +1000 outsider at the start of the tournament, but it managed to beat France in the final. The Portuguese lost to Belgium in the Round of 16 at the last European Championship, and they then suffered a shocking defeat to Morocco at the 2022 World Cup, so they will need to prove they can handle the pressure of competing on the biggest stage this summer.
