Portugal v Czech Republic stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Portugal stormed through qualifying, winning all 10 games as they scored 34 times and conceded only twice, with Slovakia the only team to breach them as they kept nine clean sheets.

Boss Roberto Martinez has won 14 games from 16 since taking over, but must now try and improve on his tournament record following an ultimately fruitless spell with Belgium.

Czech Republic finished second to surprise package Albania in qualifying, with four wins in eight games and just 12 goals scored.

Manager Ivan Hasek returned in January for a second stint in charge and is unbeaten in nine games across two spells as boss after this reign started with four friendly wins. Both teams scored in all of those four recent games.

Martinez must decide how to deploy veterans Ronaldo and central defender Pepe, now aged 41, during Euro 2024.

Bruno Fernandes is set for a key role in midfield, likely with Bernardo Silva alongside. Ruben Dias and Diogo Dalot could increase the representation from the Manchester clubs.

Czech Republic team news

The Czechs are without midfielder Michal Sadilek, who fell off a bike after the squad was named.
