Serbia – Portugal, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SERBIA - PORTUGAL
The situation for the Serbs is delicate. They only played 3 games in which they got 4 points. The Ukrainians beat them 5-0 and it seems that the latest have a great chance of 1st place, while it would be absurd for Portugal not to qualify from the group given that they are reigning European Champions and won the League of Nations. It was clear that the Serbian group was very difficult, so they have no right to lose this clash with Portugal. In the first match, they did well, and now they can count on all their stars in the match.
Portugal could neither beat Serbia nor Ukraine at home. If they do not take their matches with these teams in the away games, there is a real danger that they will not finish in the top 2. The Portuguese are with their best squad in this match except for the injured Pepe and Gomes. Selesao played great in both matches for the League of Nations and if they put that spirit in the qualifiers they would have a much better chance of winning the three points.
Expert view : This is a very even game in which anyone can win at paper, but we will bet on the better team. Portugal has Ronaldo, Bernardo and Felix in the attack. These are the players in the highest level of world football and they can handle any match. As strong as the Serbs are, we just don’t see how they will win the game with Portugal in this situation. The good play of the guests has to give result, because in both games they were the better team so far. Prediction – Portugal – Draw No Bet on 1.55.
Portugal have only 1 loss in their last 17 games (vs Uruguay at the World Cup)
Serbia has never defeated Portugal
