Luxembourg – Portugal, European Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LUXEMBOURG - PORTUGAL
Luxembourg played a pretty worthy match with Serbia and they scored 2 goals. They lost by 2-3, but they seriously hampered their opponent, which is not a big deal considering that the match was obligatory for winning by the Serbs. With Luxembourg, progress in the last 2-3 years cannot be overlooked. The overall football development system in the country is very progressive and effective. Of course, the capabilities of the team aren’t particularly big.
Portugal beat Lithuania 6-0, with Ronaldo breaking new records. In addition, he made the hat trick. Amazing achievements for the Portuguese, even at 34 years old. He has 55 career hat tricks, 9 of them for the national team, and is up 2 goals from 100 goals for his country. Portugal have not yet officially qualified, however. They must win today to be sure of their second place in the group.
Expert view : Considering that Portugal is not just coming to play a random match and go home, but is coming for the victory, so as not to risk anything and not be interested in the outcome of the Serbia-Ukraine match, we will bet on them. Their form is good enough for us not to worry about winning today. Of course, the odds for this is very low, so we will rely on their goals. We have seen that Luxembourg does not bother to play offensive at all, especially at home, against any team, so today they will also give space to the Portuguese. Prediction – Portugal to score in both halves at 1.60.
