The match between Serbia and Portugal in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers will take place at 02:45 on March 28, Vietnam time. This competition will take place at the Stadion Rajko Mitić.
Predict the match Serbia vs Portugal
Portugal had a successful opening match with a 1-0 victory over Azerbaijan. This minimal victory has brought Portugal to 2nd place in Group A, behind the top team Serbia and also Portugal’s opponent in this match.
Impressive performance in the opening match helped Serbia temporarily rank above Portugal thanks to the goal difference scored. This will be a huge morale boost for Dragan Stojkovic’s army in their journey to the 2022 World Cup, even though they are still only considered the average team of European football.
On the other side of the front line, the Portuguese team had a not-so-convincing performance despite having 3 full points after the first round. Holding the ball to 65% and having up to 29 shots during 90 minutes, but the Euro champion had to rely on a defensive mistake of the opponent to get the goal to end the game. The most expected player is Cristiano Ronaldo who played really poorly in this match.
Recent form of Serbia vs Portugal
NS players like Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Moutinho, Bruno Fernandes, Diego Jota, … have been proving their ability and influence in leading European clubs such as Man City, Man United, Liverpool,….
In the next match, Portugal’s fans all hope these players shine at the right time to bring victory to the home team. In my opinion, this will be a difficult match for Seleccao.
Portugal is in good form with 4 wins in the last 5 matches, keeping a clean sheet in 6 of the last 8 matches. Therefore, more or less Ronaldo and his teammates can be confident on the defensive front. On the offensive front, Ronaldo and his teammates have scored 18 goals against opponents in the last 10 matches.
On the home side, Serbia had 3 wins, 5 draws and 2 defeats. Their home form is also not good when they have only won the last 5/10 matches.
Serbia have never beaten Portugal in the last six meetings. They lost 3 matches and drew 3 matches. However, the current form and the house odds are allowing Stojkovic teachers and students to have the right to dream.
