Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe are just one step ahead of the glory. Both players could finish the season lifting the Euro 2016 in one of their best seasons ever after winning the 11th Champions League for Real Madrid back in May.
Both Real Madrid players have been very important in the path to the final for the Portuguese team. Portugal showed a great defence against Croatia and Poland in the knock-out stage with Pepe shining with Southampton defence José Fonte as the full back couple.
And, obviously, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal have arrived to their second European final in their history. The Real Madrid star was heavily criticized during the tournament but he scored two very important goals against Hungary in the last game of the Group stage and the opening goal in the semifinals against Wales with a great header.
Now, Cristiano Ronaldo can become even closer to the FIFA Ballon D’or if he is able to win the Euro in the same year he scored the last penalty in the Champions League final against Atlético de Madrid.
France is the favourite of the game according to the bookmakers. In Betfair we can find odds for Portugal to win in 90 minutes 18/5 and France winning 21/20. In the market who lifts the trophy, France have odds 4/9 and Portugal 11/1.
Another interesting market is the scorer. If Cristiano Ronaldo scores at any moment in the game, you can bet with the odd 15/8. However, Betfair is offering to their new customers an enhanced odds offer of 8/1 Cristiano Ronaldo to score.
