Serbia vs Portugal: Squawka Says
Portugal struggled past Azerbaijan in their last match, while Serbia managed an impressive 3-2 win over the Republic of Ireland. But Portugal’s incredible attacking arsenal should see them over the line here. Have your own say and go head-to-head with the Squawka experts and other Karamba punters with Karamba Battle!
Scoreline prediction: Serbia 1-3 Portugal
Serbia vs Portugal: Predictions
Serbia came from 1-0 down to beat the Republic of Ireland 3-2 in their opening qualifying match, with an Aleksandar Mitrovic brace complimenting a Dusan Vlahovic first-half strike. Despite never tasting victory against Portugal, Dragan Stojković’s men might well fancy their chances of sneaking above them as group winners, with the likes of Luxembourg and Azerbaijan unlikely to pick up too many points.
Serbia’s confidence will also be enhanced by watching the way Portugal lumbered to victory against Azerbaijan in their first Group A match. Despite attempting a whopping 29 shots — 14 of which were on target — Fernando Santos’ men were only able to seal a 1-0 victory thanks to an own-goal from Azerbaijan full-back, Maksim Medvedev. But with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Joao Felix and Andre Silva among their attacking ranks, it’s hard to see Portugal not getting right among the goals soon.
Serbia vs Portugal: Match Stats
Despite struggling to score consistently at club level, Aleksandar Mitrovic has been in great form for Serbia, netting four goals in his last five caps. Serbia are unbeaten in their last five games, while they’ve scored eight goals in their last two competitive outings, beating Russia 5-0 and Ireland 3-2.
Like Mitrovic, Joao Felix has been unable to contribute regular goals for Atletico Madrid this season but has scored three in his last six caps for Portugal. Prior to their 1-0 win over Azerbaijan, Portugal had scored at least three goals in three of their last four international matches, while Santos’ side are currently enjoying a run of just one defeat in their last nine games.
