First match of the quarterfinals on Thursday.
I watched all the games from these two teams so far. Portugal is the team that showed the most on this tournament so far in my opinion. First match they played against Germany they were the better side but they were unfortunate, against Denmark they showd charackter against a very good danish side on the tournament, by the turning the game around in their favour. On the last match everybody tought the Netherlands will find a way to beat Portugal and come threw as second, by they ended up being almost humiliated by a superior Portugal side. Cristiano Ronaldo also made an great effort to erase the bad memories from the danish game and showed his true potential.
Regarding the Czechs, they are missing Rosicky tomorrow, who is one of their main stars amongst Cech, who is appear to be a weak link in the Czech side on big tournaments, since he had made unbelievable mistakes on the last 2 european competitions for the side. The main force of the Czech side at this moment are Jiracek and Pilar. Knowing Jiracek is good player from before, who preformed good for Victora Pilsen and Wolfsburg, it was not a big suprise for me, but on the other hand Im really suprised by Pilar who has shown great potential and he will be the main attacking force for the czechs.
Suming up, Portugal has a really good side covered with players from great clubs, who has overcome the bad form, from their friendlies before the tournament and is looking sharp atm, playing against a Czech side without their main playmaker and with a shaky defense, adding on that, their only striker is totally out of form, I think this price for Portugal is a must take. Czech have also shown that they play better when the control the ball and when they are playing against slow and defensive teams. Portugal aint one of them, thats why Im taking this bet.
