Portugal- Euro qualifiers

Match Date: 14 November 2014 (local time)

 

Portugal vs. Armenia

The match against Armenia generates a huge opportunity for the sports betting favorite, s Portugal to improve its rank in Group I.
Despite its overt advantage over other squads, the club failed to dominate the group and instead, struggles in the 3rd spot. Its shocking loss to the minnow, Albania, resulted to Paulo Bento’s sacking after choosing to drop Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting XI due to the player’s injury concerns.

 

Ronaldo, who is at the apex of his form and abilities will now join the Portuguese squad that will face Armenia.

 

Speaking of Armenia, the team remains in search of its first win in the qualifiers. It currently occupies the rock bottom part of the group and apparently, its ambition to secure its first win will have to wait for a while.

 

Prediction: 3-0

 

Serbia vs. Denmark

Similar to Portugal, Denmark will be using the upcoming match to strengthen its campaign.

 

The team currently holds the top spot of Group I and looks forward to earning more points. A win will definitely ensure its qualification in the next stage of the tournament.

 

As for Serbia, having a mere point under its belt will not prevent them from its attempt to snatch three (3) more points. Serbia could exploit home court advantage over the host, but they need to be more tactically prepared and clinical in order to deliver.

 

Prediction: 1-2
