Portugal hosts Israel in a friendly international match. The match will be played on Wednesday, June 9th at Estadio Jose Alvalade (Lisbon).
The national team of Portugal will go to the European Championship as the reigning champion. Moreover, there is a unique duration — the title is held for five years. Of course, there were cases when someone won gold medals twice in a row. But the upcoming continental tournament was shifted because of the coronavirus. In principle, it can be said that this can be beneficial to Selecao. Yes, Ronaldo has become a year older, and his season at Juventus was not the best. Moreover, now Cristiano is on the verge of leaving for another club. But at the same time, his individual indicators are in order. And other footballers made a good impression in 2020/2021. Diogo Zota reached a new level, starting unexpectedly brightly at Liverpool. Bruno Fernandes remains the main "brain" at Manchester United. Andre Silva remembered how to score at Eintracht Frankfurt - only Lewandowski scored more in the Bundesliga. However, a 0-0 draw against Spain shows that Fernando Santos remains quite pragmatic.
Israel could be among the participants of the Euro. The usual qualification didn’t bring success. But the Blue and Whites got the right for one more chance through the quota of the Nations League. Moreover, there was an away draw with Scotland both in the regulation and in extra time. But then Marshall said a weighty word - the experienced goalkeeper won the penalty shootout for the Scots. It's far from certain that there will be a new chance soon. Willibald Ruttersteiner's charges started the new qualification not in the best way. In fact, the national team has confirmed that it is a middle peasant. Israel began the cycle with a defeat to the favorite, Denmark, and then could not defeat the Scottish offenders at home. And having conceded first in the third round, the Israelis defeated Moldova away. However, despite the not optimal roster (there are no leading forwards, Weissmann and Dabbur), Israel managed to start the current training camp with a victory over Montenegro.
Bookmakers are expecting the logical victory of the Portuguese. But they are unlikely to deviate from their classic pragmatic style. There won't be another goalless draw after Spain, and you need to wait for two or three goals scored.
