Portugal – Switzerland, Nations League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR PORTUGAL - SWITZERLAND
Portugal is not in its best shape. For the qualifiers they played against Ukraine and Serbia at home and in neither match could not take three points. For League of Nations, they also had two draws with Italy and Poland before. Certainly, European champions have shown difficulties in attack, and Cristiano has not helped much since he returned. In the match with Switzerland they will also miss some important players like André Silva, for example.
Switzerland made a spectacular turn over Belgium from 0-2 to 5-2 last year and deservedly will now play a semi-final with Portugal in the League of Nations tournament. The Swiss took the match easily with Georgia in the Euro qualifiers before the failure vs Denmark, where Switzerland led 3-0 and allowed the red dynamite to equalize them for 6-7 minutes at the end of the match.
It’s hard to predict in what conditions players will be, because they have been resting different periods of time, but we expect there are not many risks. These are, above all, teams that have a very strong defense, and in important matches, security and good defense are the most important. We think that there will not be a particularly spectacular match and judging by Portugal’s last post games, our forecast is Under 3.0 – Asian Goal Line at 1.44.
6 of Portugal’s last 8 games ended with less than 2.5 goals
In 5 consecutive matches between Portugal and Switzerland there are less than 3 goals
