Serbia welcomes Portugal in a big derby from Group B of the European qualifications. This match at the Rajko Mitic Stadium in Belgrade could be very important for the way how this group is going to develop. Let’s examine it in our sure win prediction today.
Serbia probably hoped of starting their qualifying campaign a little bit better. In their first three games so far the Eagles won four points with a record of one win, one draw and one loss. They already faced Portugal once in the group – in Lisboa, where the game ended with a draw.
In their last game the Serbians hosted Lithuania at home and enjoyed the fans with a solid 4-1 win. Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic showed good form and scored a brace, while Real Madrid’s summer signing Luka Jovic and Besiktas’ Adem Ljajic also put the ball in the net. For Serbia this match was a good preparation for the much tougher test against Portugal on Saturday.
The current European champion Portugal started their qualifying campaign in a dissapointing way, doing two draws in the first two games against Ukraine and Serbia. It becomes even more complicated for them because these two games were played in Lisboa, so Selecao missed two very good chances to record a win against direct rivals.
In their second game in the group Portugal faced Serbia at the Da Luz in Lisboa. Dusan Tadic opened the score for the visitors from a penalty kick, but Danilo Pereira equalised for the European champions. Cristiano Ronaldo left the pitch with an injury after just 30 minutes of playing, which really impacted the hosts.
Now Portugal is going to rely on the young star Joao Felix as well, who started the season in La Liga with Atletico Madrid’s shirt in an impressive way.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the European qualification between Serbia and Portugal on Saturday. This is going to be a crucial game in this group.
