Didier Deschamps' men are the favourites to secure another European crown on home soil but new Betway customers can take an enhanced price of 6/1 about Les Blues

France passed their toughest test to date courtesy of a 2-0 semi-final win over a Germany side who had been joint favourites in the run up to the tournament. The bookmakers favour the home side to secure piece of international silverware when they host Portugal in Paris on Sunday.

Quotes of Even money (2.0) seem fair about Didier Deschamps' side adding to their trophy haul with a victory inside 90 minutes but Betway are offering all new customers an enhanced price on the favourites.

Anyone yet to open an account can take up a quote of 6/1 (7.0). To take advantage of this enhancement simply register for a new account, back France at the usual price shown on site and if they win then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price.

What's more, if the favourites fail to win the game in normal time then anyone who took up the offer will get their stake back as a free bet courtesy of the online bookmaker.

While Les Blues had a relatively kind run in the early stages of the tournament, their last two performances have demonstrated why the odds compilers were unwilling to lay bigger than 10/3 (4.33) pre-tournament.

The 5-2 demolition of Iceland was a fine attacking display while their semi-final victory showcased how resolute their defensive line could be in the face of sustained pressure from the world champions.

With Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud in fine form in front of goal, France appear to be strong enough to get the better of a Portugal side who had failed to win a game in normal time until they saw off Wales in the semi-finals in Lyon.
