Luxemburg take on the visitors Portugal in the round 2 match of UEFA Euro 2024 qualification. The match will be played on Saturday, March 26th at Stade de Luxembourg (Luxembourg).
Luxembourg certainly deserves praise for their recent results. They can confidently be called a modest team of the continent, rather than a hopeless outsider as they were before. In the first round of the current qualifiers, they started with a draw of 0-0 against Slovakia. As for the upcoming match, they will face a top opponent, and Luxembourg has not yet grown to the level to dictate their terms to top teams. It was noticeable in the previous qualification cycle (for the 2022 World Cup) when they lost to Portugal 1-3 at home and 0-5 away. The situation will likely be the same this time, and the class of the Portuguese will make a difference in the upcoming match.

For the Portuguese, this qualifying cycle seems to be a walk in the park. There are no really tough opponents in the group - Bosnia, Slovakia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg. Surely in the upcoming rounds, the Portuguese will build a comfortable lead and confidently lead the group. And for Ronaldo, such a group is a great opportunity to increase his goal-scoring tally for the national team. In the first round, the Portuguese beat Liechtenstein 4-0, with Ronaldo scoring twice. Undoubtedly, Luxembourg is a much stronger force in European football than Liechtenstein. But the Portuguese will find a way to deal with such an opponent and score a few goals against them. Therefore, a handicap bet (-1.5) on the away team could be a good option.
Naturally, the odds for a straight win for the Portuguese are not impressive, and something more significant should be considered. Therefore, the recommended bet for this match is a handicap (-1.5) on Portugal. As I have already mentioned, Luxembourg has been improving their results lately, but they still struggle against top teams. My bet for this match is a handicap (-1.5) on Portugal.
Prediction for the match: Portugal to win with -1.5 handicap.
