Portugal U-19 predecessors played in the semi-final of UEFA Under-19 European Championship. This squad of “The Lusitans” went through two qualifying rounds on the road to the final stage. The Portuguese occupied the second place in the group with four points gained and 3-3 goal difference in the Qualifying round. In the Elite round the team won the group with six points taken and 6-4 goal difference after 2:1 vs. Croatia, 1:2 vs. Turkey and 3:1 vs. Poland.
The Georgians participate in UEFA Under-19 European Championship’s final stage as the hosts and they would have unlikely qualified to it by the sporting results. Therefore, despite its hosting status, the Georgian team seems to be the main outsider of the competition and it will play the loser role in the opening clash as gaining even a draw would be a big surprise.
Prediction for the match: Portugal to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
