Portugal vs Northern Ireland Betting Tips and Preview

Portugal take on Northern Ireland at Estádio do Dragão and are looking to bounce back from their Russian defeat on Friday night.

The A Selecção das Quinas have yet to really find their feet in Group F and will be looking to put in a performance against Northern Ireland. One would envisage a cricket score for Portugal but they only managed to put 3 past Azerbaijan and had to come from behind to scrape a 2-1 victory against Luxembourg. However class should out and Portugal are taken to win by 3 or more goals which is 5/6 with Skybet.

The expectation is that Northern Ireland will try and keep it tight at the back and frustrate the home team. This can lead to tired minds and bodies in the latter stages of matches which Portugal can exploit and bag some goals with their boots. This was the tactic that Azerbaijan employed and that lead to three second half goals for Portugal. With that in mind we’ll take the second half as being the highest scoring half at 11/10 with Stan James.
