Portugal Preview – Can Portugal re-discover form?

Although Portugal just about made it through the group stage and into the knockout rounds of the recent European Championship, they were dumped out of the competition in the round of last 16 by Belgium in a 1-0 defeat, so they’ll be keen to make amends in these upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Portugal recorded a 3-0 win over Hungary in their opening group match but this was where their success ended as they were handed defeats by Germany and then Belgium, but these have been Portugal’s only defeats in their last 10 matches in all competitions.

In addition, the hosts hold a great record in World Cup qualifiers as they’ve won 11 of their last 12 matches overall along with winning their last eight home games on the trot.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Republic of Ireland Preview – Can Irish contain hosts?

Republic of Ireland will head into this Wednesday evening clash against Portugal looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot in Group A following back-to-back losses against Serbia 3-2 away and a disastrous 1-0 loss at home to minnows, Luxembourg.

The bigger picture shows that the Irish have collected just one win from their previous 14 matches in all competitions which also consists of seven defeats and six draws while also failing to score in nine of these 14 matches as well.

Republic of Ireland’s lack of firepower up front could again hamper them against a quality Portuguese outfit here and the hosts should record a comfortable win here with goals.
