Portugal Serbia betting prediction


Preview

Portugal and Serbia face off at Luz Stadium on this match of the 5th qualifying round (Group I) for the 2016 European Championship.

The Portuguese come into this match with 3 straight wins on their record the last one against Argentina where Rafael Guerreiro scored the only goal. At this time, Santos’s team is 2nd on the group with 6 points.

The Serbians have won their last match, a 0-2 away win on a friendly against Greece. Their last official match, however, ended with a 1-3 loss against Denmark, after grabbing the early lead they conceded the 3 goals that sealed their fate. They are currently 4th on the group with only 1 point.

The head to head history between the teams registers two draws between them although it seems fair to attribute some favouritism to Portugal. 

Analysis of Portugal

Portugal had a hard time on the last round of the qualifiers having only sealed the win on the 5th minute of overtime thanks to an excellent cross by Quaresma.

The team has several flaws however. Their offensive processes can be very disorganized, with a very visible lack of chemistry. Most of the times, however, the individual qualities of the players are enough to decide matches.

On the defensive side, Eliseu seems to be the weak stop, lacking the stopping power to terminate many of the opponent’s attacks.


Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Bruno Alves, Fábio Coentrão, José Bosingwa, Ricardo Carvalho, Eliseu, João Moutinho, Danny, Nani, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Coach: Tiago.

Analysis of Serbia

The Serbian team star is Tosic. The CSKA player has a very impressive set of skills: speed, passing and great 1 on 1 skills between them.

Together with him, the offensive power of the Serbian team is increased with quality players like Markovic, Tadic and Duricic.

On the defence, the experience of players like Ivanovic and Kolarov supported by the surging Chelsea midfielder Matic guarantee excellent defensive turnouts for the team.

Advocaat will probably adopt a 4-2-3-1 tactic for this match with Lazovic up front. We can expect organized attacking and ball possession.


Confirmed Lineup: V. Stojković, M. Nastasić, B. Ivanović, A. Kolarov, D. Basta, R. Petrović, N. Matić, L. Marković, A. Ljajić, D. Tadić, A. Mitrović.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be a Portugal win. Even though they are not going through the best of times, Cristiano Ronaldo and friends still have superior quality in every aspect of their team. As such, having to score and playing at home we should expect that Portugal will start strong trying to reach the early goal.
