Ukraine vs Portugal prediction comes before the next Euro 2020 qualifiers matchup. This game will be played on Monday, October 14th, at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine. In this match preview, we will bring you the betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of the two national teams.
Ukraine vs Portugal Betting Tips
Portugal should not worry too much about their future in the Euro 2020. Considering that they’ve won the UEFA Nations League, even if they fail to qualify for the continental championship directly (by finishing the group stage at one of the two top spots), they will still get a second chance in the play-offs. But, Portugal don’t want a second chance; they want to get the job done ASAP.
After all, they’re the European champions and it would be pretty embarrassing if they failed to finish the qualification campaign below the second spot. Actually, this team wants to finish the qualifiers at the top of Group B. The only problem is that Ukraine want the same and they are currently closer to achieving that goal. But, that could change on Monday. If Portugal manage to win in Ukraine, they will come much closer to securing the top spot.
Both teams have been playing amazing lately, but the player quality is undoubtedly on the side of Portugal. The biggest advantage of Ukraine is the fact that they’re playing on their turf. At home, this team has won both games they played during this qualification campaign. They beat Luxemburg 1:0 and hammered Serbia 5:0.
Although it’s definitely a good achievement for Ukraine, they still must worry ahead of this clash. There are many reasons for that, starting with the fact that Portugal have been excellent on the road. This team has won both of their away matches in the qualification, namely against Lithuania and Serbia.
All this promises a very interesting duel. Anything can happen on Monday, but in our opinion, the visiting team seems more likely to win all three points. If that sounds too risky for your standards, maybe betting on goals would be a better choice. There should be a lot of them!
