Portugal’s results at the tournament came as quite disappointment. They failed to win a single match in quite mediocre group with Iceland, 1-1. Austria, 0-0 and Hungary, 3-3. Such results got the team the third place in the group. Portugal prevailed in every match they played and created numerous chances but started to convert their chances to goals only in clash against Hungary. At the same time, defensive staff of the team couldn’t hold Hungarian offensive line built of average players, conceding also three goals. Ronaldo has finally scored his goals in this tournament but his double got the team only 1 point. The team is quite inconsistent and don’t appear to be the side who can battle for late stages of the competition in France.
The opponents have played three head-to-heads in their history and all three of these battles were won by Portuguese team. However, each playoffs match is whole different story and doesn’t have to do anything with previous record. The team proved they know how to find the back of the net and should combine at least two goals in upcoming clash.
Prediction for the match: Over 1.5 goals.
