Portugal hosts Serbia in round 10 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Sunday, November 14th at Estadio da Luz (Lisbon).
The Portuguese national team is predictably fighting for the first place in the group and is leading it. But Selecao are outranking the Serbs only in goal difference. In the last game, the Portuguese could not beat Ireland (0-0), and Pepe picked up a red card, which will not allow him to play in the upcoming match. Since such a star as Cristiano Ronaldo is playing here, and the roster as a whole is stronger than that of the opponent, no one will sit on the desired lead because there is a high probability to concede a stray goal at the end of the match.
This qualification is successful for the national team of Serbia. The Eagles put up a fight on the formidable Portuguese, and there were no problems with overtaking Luxembourg, Azerbaijan, and Ireland. The Serbian national team missed the last round, but it had a friendly match against Qatar, which was confidently beaten with a 4-0 score. The Portuguese are very scary, although they are far from sinless, so the Serbs need to squeeze the maximum out of their scoring chances.
As statistics show, these opponents regularly exchange goals scored, and more often the Portuguese win. In the first round, Cristiano and company were leading 2-0 after the first half but did not keep the advantage (a 2-2 draw). There are a lot of indications that Portugal will hold the first place because the team will even be satisfied with a draw at home. Although having such players, it is simply a crime to play for a draw, and most of them play with an eye to attack. Although the Serbs are underdogs, they have nothing to lose, as they will not fall below the second place. Therefore, they can take risks. We expect a productive game from the opponents and recommend betting on Over 2.5 goals scored.
