It's the final very few people expected, but outsider team Portugal versus host nation France will close Euro 2016 on Sunday evening. This is one of the most exciting sporting events of the year, and you will want to watch, but also to bet and win. Take a look at our Euro 2016 final preview, with some of the best bets you can place on the match.
Euro 2016 Final Key Players
Paul Pogba - France
The France midfielder, a star player for Juventus in Italy's Serie A, took some time to find his feet in Euro 2016, but has dominated the knockout games, his bustling runs frightening defences, his long-range drives doing the same for goalkeepers. Rumours persist that Pogba will seek a move to another club after the Euros, and he will be keen to prove he is a big-game player.
Best Bet: 7/2 with Betway to score anytime
Dimitri Payet - France
Payet has been perhaps the breakout star of Euro 2016, the West Ham playmaker proving how valuable he is by scoring two fantastic late winners in the group stages. As one of the preferred free kick-takers, Payet is a dangerous goal threat and also possesses the killer pass to see off Portugal.
Best Bet: 16/5 with BetVictor to score anytime
Cristiano Ronaldo - Portugal
Ronaldo is an obvious player to highlight, but he will inevitably be one of the most important players in the Euro 2016 final, as he captains his team and is its one standout player. Having scored one of Portugal's two goals against Wales in the semi-final, the Real Madrid superstar is back on something close to top form, and if France's uncertain defence leave him an inch of space, he is a likely scorer.
Best Bet: 23/10 with Unibet to score anytime
Joao Mario - Portugal
Joao Mario has emerged as one of the surprise key players in Portugal's team, a regular fixture in midfield, with pace and a good eye for a pass. As the team's corner-taker, he has created plenty of chances for Ronaldo to get his head onto. Though he may not score as regularly as Ronaldo or Nani, Joao Mario has looked consistently dangerous in this tournament.
