Serbia vs Portugal Prediction & Match Preview
Saturday, September 7 – 14:45 EST – Rajko Mitic Stadium
In their opening match against Portugal in Lisbon, Serbia did well to leave with one point in what ended as a 1-1 draw. However, Serbia experienced all sorts of problems in an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Ukraine in June. Following this defeat, coach Mladen Krstajic was replaced with Ljubisa Tumbakovic. In their latest match against Lithuania, Serbia did well to find the back of the net four times in what ended as a 4-1 victory. Key players Nemanja Matic, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dusan Tadic made the difference and will need to continue to do so for the Stadion Rajko Mitic showdown. They will need to be excellent if they are to even have a chance at coming out on top against this high caliber Portuguese side.
Portugal are winless in Euro qualifiers. Their last match was against Serbia at home which ended in a draw. They currently sit with only two points in their group. Despite this, Portugal did very well to win the UEFA Nations League. Their semi final game was all about Ronaldo. He scored three times against the Swiss in what ended as a 3-1 victory. Portugal then moved on to beat the Netherlands in the final. As usual, keep an eye out for Cristiano Ronaldo who will look to be the difference maker in this one. We expect Portugal to come out with a very attack minded approach in this one, but playing in Serbia is no easy task for any team.
