CRISTIANO RONALDO will be bursting to break his barren run at Euro 2024 when Portugal face France at the quarter-final stage on Friday night.

Among the ante-post favourites to win the Golden Boot, Ronaldo is currently enduring his longest-ever scoring drought at a major tournament.

The Portugal captain had to be consoled by his teammates after missing a penalty against Slovenia on Monday night so he will be eager to make amends against France.

 This article will examine all the key betting markets from a Ronaldo-based perspective.

Cristiano Ronaldo odds today – latest prices

Many pundits have suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo should be dropped from the Portugal starting XI on Friday night but a CR7-inspired victory over France would silence a lot of critics.

The Selacao skipper showed his mettle by successfully converting the first spot-kick in his side's penalty shootout win over Slovenia on Monday night. 

While Ronaldo has blanked in Portugal’s opening four matches of Euro 2024, there is still plenty of time for the legendary forward to have the last laugh in Germany. 

Ronaldo to score anytime

Cristiano Ronaldo is 15/8 (2.88) on Betfred to fire in his first goal of the tournament against France on Friday night. For once, Ronaldo is not the bookmakers favourite in this particular market, with Kylian Mbappe deemed more likely to score at 7/4 (2.75) with Betfred.

Ronaldo to score first

Cristiano Ronaldo is also the bookies second favourite behind Kylian Mbappe in the first goalscorer market on Friday night. The Portuguese icon is 4/1 (5.0) on Betfred to be the first player to hit the back of the net in Hamburg. The oddsmakers appear to be giving little away despite Ronaldo's current woes in front of goal.

Ronaldo 2+ Shots on Target

No player has attempted more shots on goal at Euro 2024 than Cristiano Ronaldo, who has racked up 20 efforts in total, eight of which have hit the target. The 39-year-old forward has been priced up at 4/9 (1.44) on Betfred for one on-target effort against France on Friday night, while he is 2/1 (3.0) to test the Portuguese goalkeeper twice 

Ronaldo To be carded 

Ronaldo's petulance and play-acting has seen him on the receiving end of his fair share of yellow cards throughout his glittering career. Ronaldo is 4/1 (5.0) to have his name taken against France. Of course, the potential iconic shirt-off celebration could also land CR7 in trouble with referee Michael Oliver.

Portugal vs France bet builder

Cristiano Ronaldo 1+ Shot on Target, Kylian Mbappe 1+ Shot on Target & Joao Cancelo to commit 1+ foul at 49/50 (1.98) on Betfred

Ronaldo 1+ Shot on Target

Cristiano Ronaldo has hit the target a minimum of once in each of his four appearances at Euro 2024 and that trend should continue against France. Ronaldo’s tendency to shoot on sight is only likely to increase the longer he goes without a goal and he should get opportunities to let fly when faced with a French side that tends to opt for a safety-first approach under Didier Deschamps.

Mbappe 1+ Shot on Target

Kylian Mbappe is another player who will be out to steal the show on Friday night. The French superstar has averaged two shots on target per-game at Euro 2024 so far and he can work Portugal goalkeeper Diogo Costa at least once at the Volksparkstadion. 

Joao Cancelo To Commit 1+ Foul

Joao Cancelo will be tasked with keeping close tabs on foul-magnet Kylian Mbappe on Friday night. The Portuguese right-back was averaging a shade under 1.5 fouls per-game in La Liga last season and he looks a strong contender to give away at least one free kick against Les Bleus.
