Portugal – Serbia, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR PORTUGAL - SERBIA
Portugal did not cope in the first game of defending the title. Of Course, this does not change the chances of the team, which are huge, but still their group is not at all easy. They have to earn their home games and certainly expect a lot more than the big guy, Ronaldo, who has to lead the team. Portugal is in very good shape and is now expected to react properly against a stronger rival than Ukraine, but often the strongest rivals at paper, it turns out to be easier, because the concentration in the other team rises sharply.
Serbia comes after a relatively prestigious draw with Germany. Some key figures are returning for the Serbs, but still the sickbay of the team remains quite compressed. They are in very good shape, which was crowned with tremendous success in the League of Nations. We can safely say that the Serbs are a great favorite for winning the playoffs in the League C versus the opponents they have, which means that we will probably see them at Euro 2020, even if they fail in qualifiers.
We Think that in every perspective the match is much more important for Portugal. We do Not expect Serbia to go into a deaf defense, as did Ukraine though, because it is not in their style. For this reason and because of the fact that Portugal will hardly afford a second consecutive failure at home, we waiting for a victory for the hosts. The Odds are worth it, and it’s important to note something else. This team of Portugal currently looks much more talented than the one 3 years ago in France. A Lot of these guys are going to be in their prime after a year. Prediction – Portugal to win at 1.60.
