We are of the opinion that Portugal really should get a big victory and, possibly, a draw against Azerbaijan, which probably will not be easy to get into the protocol.
Things can really get out of control.
Therefore, we think that it will be a very comfortable victory with the score 0: 3 with a very high probability for Portugal by the end of 90 minutes.
