The top two sides in League A, Group 3 of this season's UEFA Nations League clash as France host Portugal on Sunday evening at the Stade de France. It's been four years and three months since Éder's extra-time winner sealed Euro 2016 glory for Portugal, against France, in that very stadium. Both have changed drastically since then.

Since a 2-1 defeat by Uruguay in the World Cup's last-16, Portugal have just lost once in 19 internationals and won last summer's Nations League instalment. France beat the Uruguayans en route to clinching World Cup triumph two years ago, have integrated prospects into the fold and have remarkable squad depth to boot.

Can either side assert their dominance to finish this week with victory and top spot in their Nations League group? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

France vs Portugal Betting Tips

Olivier Giroud netted an early first-half brace against Ukraine as France cruised to a 7-1 friendly win over Ukraine on Wednesday evening.

The Chelsea forward has now surpassed Michel Platini as the country's second-top goalscorer (42 goals, 100 caps). Kylian Mbappe had a goal and assist, Wissam Ben Yedder created two assists late on – both were second-half subs.

Eduardo Camavinga, who made his senior debut last month in their 4-2 win over Croatia, scored a maiden international goal on an evening where Didier Deschamps could rotate aplenty.

Who will start against Portugal though, remains to be seen. They were held to a goalless draw against Spain – despite the pair recording 21 shots – with goalkeeper Rui Patrício being busy.

Fernando Santos rotated too, with Danilo Pereira and Bruno Fernandes among the unused substitutes – probably with France in mind. Joao Felix and Liverpool's new signing Diogo Jota made cameos, but will presumably start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo this weekend.

France vs Portugal Correct Score Predictions

Considering both were in midweek action with contrasting results and personnel involved, this fixture could easily go either way. In six H2H meetings, Portugal's only win came four years ago, but it's their most recent meeting too.

Will that psychological edge help them here, or can France continue their favourable form against tricky opposition here?
