The national teams of Ireland and Portugal will play in the qualifying round for the World Cup. In this meeting I will bet on goals.
Stadium: Aviva (Dublin).
In Group A, where teams from Ireland and Portugal play, there was no particular struggle. At the head are the Serbs and the Portuguese, who scored 17 and 16 points, respectively. Further – the abyss. The team from Luxembourg has 6 points, Ireland has only 5 points. The Azerbaijani team closes the group with only 1 point.
The first meeting between the teams ended with a score of 2: 1 in favor of Portugal. That game was pretty interesting. It all started when Ronaldo missed a penalty. Then, in the first half, the guests scored – Egan scored.
In the second segment of the meeting, the Portuguese could not score for a long time – but still managed to translate this meeting in their favor. In the 89th minute, the same Ronaldo scored, but who led the Portuguese to victory? All the same Ronaldo already on the 6th added minute.
As in that match, the bookmakers do not expect surprises . The victory of the Portuguese national team can be taken for 1.35, the draw is estimated with odds of 5.35. The home team – the Irish – can be taken in line with the odds of 9.90.
In the last two games between the national teams, the Portuguese won – 5: 1 and 2: 1. How will it be in this meeting? There is no point in betting on the outcome, since the odds are not attractive at all. And I don’t see another option in this meeting.
1xbet betting are waiting for goals in this meeting. So, the total of more than 2.5 goals goes with a coefficient of 1.82, while the bookmakers estimated the low rate at 1.99.
Statistics are on the side of the “horse” rate – in the last two games between the national teams, both times were “top”. Moreover, I would rather note the fact that both times the teams exchanged goals.
In the qualifiers, Ireland had 4 meetings and failed to score in only one of them. I think that in this meeting the home team will score at least once – well, the Portuguese need to win, so I will put it on the “top”.
Forecast and bet on the match Ireland – Portugal
The Irish national team has nothing to lose – and I have no doubt that they will give all their strength to score at least once against the Portuguese. Well, the guests need to score points so as not to lose in the fight for the first place to the Serbs – so I take the exchange of goals for 2.17.
