Poland Looks to Shut Down Portuguese Attack in Quarterfinal

Goals have not been the theme of this tournament and two of the best scoring teams at these Euros – Croatia and Portugal – proved that in their round of 16 game that saw the first shot on net come in the 117th minute of play. That effort from Ricardo Quaresma turned into the first and only goal of the game and put Portugal through to the quarters where they will face a Polish team that has struggled to create scoring chances.

SHARK BITES
  • At these Euros, Poland and Portugal have combined to draw 6 of 8 of their total matches.
  • Both of the last 2 matches between Poland and Portugal ended in draws.
  • Poland has just 12 attempts on target through 4 games.  

In four games, Poland has scored just three goals and has never scored more than one in a match at these Euros. Their low-scoring record, however, has been countered by their unwillingness to concede. The combination of Łukasz Fabiański and Wojciech Szczęsny in the Polish net have allowed only one goal through the round of 16.

Portugal has floundered their way into the quarterfinals and have done everything in their power, it seems, to lose games. They drew all of their group play matches and played the maximum 120 minutes in their elimination game against Croatia.

Online shop Bovada currently has Portugal +120 and Poland +290 on the moneyline with a +200 option for a draw.
