In Group A of the European qualification for the 2022 World Cup, two leaders have already emerged, who are likely to advance further – these are the national teams of the Czech Republic and Portugal. Theoretically, only Luxembourg can leave Ronaldo and KO outside the first two, but for this the latter needs to win in each of the three remaining matches, and the Portuguese have to lose in all. Does anyone believe this? All points over i will dot the face-to-face meeting between Portugal and Luxembourg. Full statistics and odds for the match can be found at 1xbet v.83.

Forecast for the match Portugal national team – Luxembourg national team
Let us immediately recall how the first game, which took place in Luxembourg, ended. And there was nothing surprising – Portugal won with a score of 3: 1, while Cristiano Ronaldo found his goal there. Overall, the striker took part in four qualifying matches and scored three times during this period. At home, Cristiano will certainly have many opportunities to excel, so here you can consider betting on Ronaldo’s goal at odds of 1.36. Little, but a high chance!
However, we will consider an alternative. Arbiter Benoit Bastien is quite generous in distributing mustard plasters this season, and the average individual total of Portugal’s LCDs within the qualification framework is always in the region of two, and Luxembourg has the same indicators. We think it is worth considering the rate for housing and communal services (4).
