The first day of the Euro 2024 group stage ends today with the matches of Group F. Türkiye and Georgia will open the ball in Dortmund, at the first, historic participation in the European Championships. The two national teams have not competed against each other for 12 years. Vincenzo Montella wants to start immediately with the three points and to do so he relies on the Juventus gem Kenan Yildiz, 6 goals and 2 assists in the season. From Juventus to Napoli the step is very short and Georgia can only rely on its leader, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

In the evening, in Leipzig, Portugal will take to the field to challenge the Czech Republic. Cristiano Ronaldo, at 39 years old, he is ready to face the fifth European of his career and dreams of doing so as a protagonist. Portugal, according to Sisal experts, starts as a favorite at 1.50 against the Czech Republic’s 6.50 while they drop to 4.25 for a draw. The red-greens scored repeatedly in the qualifiers, 36 goals. Cristiano Ronaldo has already scored in two final stages for the Czech Republic, in 2008 and 2012. Rafa Leao and Bruno Fernandes will help him in search of the first three points. The Czech Republic relies on the Euro 2020 top scorer, Patrick Schick. The former Roma striker played for a year at the Red Bull Arena, scoring ten goals for Leipzig.
