Belarus is clearly struggling in this qualification campaign, having played five matches without a single win. Despite two encounters with Andorra and a match against the Faroe Islands, Belarus has been unable to secure a victory, managing at best a draw. Currently, it seems highly unlikely that Belarus will achieve anything significant. At most, they can hope that Portugal will not utterly demolish them and limit their defeat to 3-4 goals. However, this is a difficult scenario to believe in, as the match is being played on Portuguese soil, and Belarus is considered a straightforward opponent. Belarus is already at a significant disadvantage.
Naturally, there is no betting coefficient for a win by the home team, and bookmakers are offering a substantial negative handicap in favor of Portugal. The outcome will largely depend on the mood of the Portuguese, but they are expected to secure victory by at least 3-4 goals. Therefore, the recommended betting option is a negative handicap for the hosts, specifically: Portugal with a handicap of (-3).
Prediction for the match: Portugal U21 to win with -3.0 handicap.
