Portugal win at half-time and full-time
Portugal have been leading at half-time they are World Cup qualification matches were far. If not for the second-half collapse against Serbia, Portugal would have picked up a victory at half-time and full-time the qualification games. Despite Luxembourg’s shock win over the Republic of Ireland, the team remains a shadow of the quality possessed by Fernando Santos’ men.
Total goals over 3.5
Luxembourg opened their World Cup qualification campaign with a clean sheet and a low scoring encounter against the Republic of Ireland. Portugal, though, have been quite inconsistent and struggling to keep their best. The offensive strength of Portugal is once again expected to come to the fore and create a high-scoring match.
Diogo Jota to score anytime
Diogo Jota scored a brace against Serbia in the 2-2 draw. These helped him move up to 11 goals for the international team. The Liverpool forward came into the international break after scoring the winner against his former club Wolves. The brace against Serbia means that Jota has three goals in his last two games. Luxembourg’s defence should provide Jota with more opportunities to build on this record.
