Portugal vs Luxembourg: Predictions
All eyes will be on Christiano Ronaldo’s side Portugal as they have not been defeated a single time in their campaign so far. One of the most dominant sides not only of their respective group but also o the tournament will want to continue their current form. Luxembourg has shown significant improvement in their last game against Serbia but still, they could not convert their good performance into a win. Yesterday in the group stage Serbia handed then yet another defeat in the last time out. Comparing head to head without a doubt Ronaldo’s Portugal has easily posted 16 wins in 18 games against Luxembourg. Until and unless a miracle happens at the Estádio Algarve tomorrow, Portugal will claim their fifth consecutive win.
Predictions: Portugal 4-0 Luxembourg
