The last big game in the group of death has a lot riding on it- not only for bragging rights, but there’s also a qualification into the next round at stake.
Portugal are in desperate need of a win, having lost in dramatic fashion to Germany, while France’s shock draw with Hungary means their top spot in the group is by no means guaranteed.
The French team may have an all-star cast, but there are also plenty of big names in the Portuguese squad which has led them to be hailed as the new golden generation.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the star of the show, but with the likes of Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota and Ruben Dias as his supporting cast, we should be in for one hell of a show.
Some of the French team may well dig deep into their memory boxes in order to fuel themselves this evening – they may well use their loss to Portugal in the final of Euro 2016 as motivation.
Antoine Griezmann has already found the fire from within, after having missed the chance to qualify already by drawing in Budapest.
Despite bagging his 38th goal for France, Griezmann was fuming at full-time, he said: “We’re disappointed, angry even, but it was a very complicated game in really high temperatures and the ground was very dry.
“We have to have a reaction against Portugal. We will have to work tactically and see where we can hurt them.
“Losing the final at home in France was the worst possible thing – it gives us the passion to go further and win this tournament.”
With that big statement in mind, you won’t want to miss the action this evening!
