serbia vs portugal Tip Reason:

Portugal head to Serbia in one of the games of the weekend, but just how will the reigning European champions get on in this tough visit to Belgrade? They could do with a win after drawing their opening two games in the group so far, which has allowed Luxembourg to climb into the top two. They even sit ahead of Serbia, so with these two nations in third and fourth with only two spots at the finals up for grabs, don’t be surprised if there’s a desperation to both sides in this clash. Serbia produced a solid showing at the World Cup in 2018, which came after an entertaining qualifying run which saw them rack up the goals. The hosts are built on that form in Autumn’s Nations League campaign, scoring twice in four of their final five games in order to take top spot and secure a playoff spot for Euro 2020 if they fail to qualify through the group. However, that’s not going to hold them back here. We expect Serbia to push for an automatic place, so we’re backing them to come out on the front foot in this one. As for Portugal, they are fresh from Nations League success after becoming the first champions of UEFA’s new competition. That’s two trophies in three years for the Portuguese, who are aiming to book their place at Euro 2020 to defend their crown. Many remember Portugal from Euro 2016 with their defensive style and rigid formation, but in qualifying they’re a very different beast. They scored 32 times across their 10 World Cup qualifiers, so we could be in for a great game here. Serbia were in imperious form at home in the last qualifying campaign. They scored 10 times in five games at home to book their place in Russia, while their Nations League form followed that up. It means that they’ve scored twice in each of their last five home games, which makes them a real threat to Portugal. In the last year, they’ve seen Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic emerge, so he’s likely to be included in the same attack as Dusan Tadic and Aleksandar Mitrovic here. However, given that the visitors won their final four away trips on the way to the World Cup, they are a threat here too. All of the last five meetings between these two have seen both teams score, something we expect to continue this weekend. Serbia’s high scoring run in the previous campaign obviously has to be taken into account, as does the strength of this Portugal team. With Ronaldo being supported by an improving Joao Felix we should really be expecting goals here. As a result, we’re going for over 2.5 goals as our tip for Saturday’s game, while we are also backing another draw for Portugal, as we see this high scoring clash finishing 2-2.
