At first the match between Portugal and Belgium should have taken Place in Brussel but doe to the terrorist attacks lately it first has been cancelled completely but now it will take place in Portugal. The duel between the first in the world ranking and the seventh will now take place in Leiria. Kick-off will be on Tuesday at 8.45 p.m..
Current Performance of Portugal - So Portugal has home advantage in this match due to a sad reason. In this match they really need to improve their performance to their last match. Cristiano Ronaldo & Co blames themselves against the outsider Bulgaria with a score of 0:1 at home. Portugal will meet in the group stage of the European championship not only Austria, also Iceland and Hungary. In the already finished qualification the Fernando Santos eleven hasn’t covered themselves with glory. So they also lost a match against Albania at home. But in the end they could celebrate the group winning. At the match against Bulgaria the new hope for the team has his first employment, Benfica talent Renato Sanchez. But not even he could prevent the defeat which was already the second out of three matches lately. Portugal was also not able to convince at the friendship matches in 2015. At first they have lost against Russia with a score of 0:1 although they have won against Luxembourg with a score of 2:0 but the performance wasn’t very good. If the performance against Belgium will be the same we see the next defeat already coming.
Current Performance of Belgium - Even when soccer is less important at the moment for Belgium, the team of Coach Mark Wilmots is the proud of the nation at the moment. The Belgian is leading the FIFA world ranking at the moment and that even before Spain and France. The qualification for the European championship was also very convincible and is one of the favourites. The Wilmots eleven has nearly in every position a worldclass player and even when they are very young they are operating well with each other. The pool of new talents isn’t empty yet. It’s the first international match for Eden Hazard & Co this year, in the last year Belgium knew how to convince. So there have been victories against Italy (3:1), Israel (3:1), Andorra (4:1) and Cyprus (1:0). The last defeat has been on the 12th June in 2015 against Wales with a score of 0:1. Despite of the defeat against Wales the Belgian team has fixed the first place in the Group B of the European championship qualification right before Wales. For the duel against Portugal, Lukaku & Co are a clear favourite.
Betting tip for this match - A few years ago the clear favourite in this match would have been Portugal. The further development of the Belgian team is impressing. After the latest shown performance it is very likely that the Wilmots eleven will also win this match against Portugal. But the host country will give everything to make the defeat against Bulgaria forgotten. Our tip is: Tip 2.
