Despite Fernando Santos’ cautious approach against Germany, Portugal were weak at the back and changes could be made against France with midfielder Renato Sanches set to start in place of Bernardo Silva.

Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema will be disappointed to have found the net only once so far. Didier Deschamps has alternatives up front with Olivier Giroud, Kingsley Coman and Wissam Ben Yedder – but Ousmane Dembele was excluded from the tournament on Monday due to a knee injury.

Here’s how we predict the two teams will line up…

Portugal vs France lineups planned

Portugal XI : Rui Patricio; Semedo, Dias, Pepe, guerrier ; Danilo, Renato Sanches, Bruno Fernandes; Felix, Ronaldo, Diogo Jota
France XI: Lloris ; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Pogba, Kanté, Rabiot; Griezmann, Benzema, Mbappé
