Portugal vs Luxembourg prediction and betting tips for 11/10/19 Euro 2020 Qualification fixture at 7:45 pm. A win for Portugal puts them in a healthy position with a game in hand over their group B rivals.
Portugal have put their slow start behind them and look to be heading towards qualification, however, Ukraine are in pole position in Group B, five points ahead of Portugal having playing a game more than the UEFA Nations League winners. Luxembourg must avoid defeat to keep their slim hopes alive, but realistically they won’t bet at Euro 2020 next summer despite the competition allowing more entrants than ever.
Two low scoring draws wasn’t the ideal start for Portugal’s qualifying campaign. Their participation in the Nations League skewed the table but at the halfway point, they’re in a qualifying spot with a game in hand over their group B opponents. They’ve won two and drawn two in qualifying so far and know that they have their destiny in their own hands. Portugal are susseptable to a slip-up in qualifying though so they need to be on their guard in their remaining fixtures. With matches against Lithuania and two against Luxembourg still to come, it would be a big shock if the holders were not at the European Championships next summer
Luxembourg were never likely to qualify for this summer’s tournament. Four points is a respectable return from them but they all came against the bottom side, Lithuania. With an away trip to Serbia and two games against Portugal left, this is the end of the road for them and they’ll just look to keep the score respectable in this fixture, and get hold of Ronaldo’s shirt at full-time!
A 5-1 win over Lithuania last time out shows what Portugal are capable of. The reigning European Champions weren’t at their best and were even level at one stage but moved up the gears in the second half. Luxembourg have scored just five goals in five games, three of which came against Lithuania. They will not pose a problem for Ronaldo’s side. Portugal to win to nil is priced at 3/10 and that’s a bet to go into your Euro 2020 accumulators for this week.
Only one man has scored more international goals than Cristiano Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored a hat-trick in his last match taking him to 93 international goals. He is just 16 behind Iran’s Ali Daei and will be desperate to bridge that gap. Expect at least a brace from the great man. Ronaldo to score two or more is pried at 11/10 and that looks a good bet here, in a match where we expect Portugal to put a few goals past the minnows of Luxembourg.
Portugal vs Luxembourg Score Prediction – Portugal to win 3-0
It’s likely a question of how many for the Portuguese. Five last time out was unusually high for a side that can struggle to break down sides who sit back. Luxembourg will do just that in Lisbon, but Portugal have enough quality to break them down. A 3-0 win is priced at 9/2 and that looks a decent selection here. It is not often that Portugal batter teams but with Ronaldo and Joao Felix in the starting 11, they should be able to get into a lead and take their foot off the gas in this one.
