<1.52> <3.40> <5.65>

Portugal's first match will be against Turkey. Portugal have a fully fit side going into this game. I'll just keep it short and simple. Ronaldo, Quaresma, Moutinho, Deco, Veloso, Simao, Nani. Portugal have too much class in the midfield and will breeze past Turkey easily, hoping to put away the disappointment of losing against Greece in 2004 in the finals and crashing out in the semis during World Cup 2006. Turkey just don't have enough to match the Portugese, who are one of the favourites to win this tournament.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Portugal @ 1.52 = $15.20
$5 on Portugal H-H @ 2.50 = $12.50

i can see why roland is so confident about portugal, the form of ronaldo, the quality of the rest of the team really makes one drool. HOWEVER, it's the first game and i urge all punters to be cautious. pre-tournament friendlies are generally useless in predicting when the real tournament swings by, and it's a potential minefield out there, so don't go in too heavy. i think portugal will win this one, but i'm preferring to be a little more cautious.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on portugal @ 1.52 = $7.60
