Luxembourg vs Portugal: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:45, Mar 30 2021
Luxembourg vs Portugal prediction for Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier clash at Stade Josy Barthel in Luxembourg. Luxembourg after beating Ireland in the last round host Portugal who drew with Serbia. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Luxembourg with a great start

The win in Dublin will give Luxembourg a huge self-confidence coming into this match. It was their first match of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign and to win against world 42nd and a quarter-finalist in 1990 Ireland, is considered a great result for them.

Coach Reinhold Breu must be satisfied with his team’s defensive performance as they have let in two goals in their last five competitive games. But Luxembourg need to improve offensively as they scored in three of the last five matches.

They were dominated by Ireland in terms of ball possession in their last match but still kept a clean sheet, something they have done twice in their last five matches.

Portugal to bounce back

After losing a two-goal lead and having a legitimate goal disallowed in the final minutes, Portugal were disappointed and it showed when captain Cristiano Ronaldo threw his captain’s armband on the floor in frustration after the match.

But with the experience in the team, coach Fernando Santos’s players are expected to bounce back in this match. Portugal have scored in their last 15 matches and they will go into this match against Luxembourg having beaten in 15 matches of 17.

In their last game against Serbia, Portugal had a great first half scoring twice and completely dominating the game. In the second half though Fernando Santos’s men eased off and they gave Serbia the chance to draw.

Key Stats

  • Luxembourg have one win in their last nine home matches
  • Luxembourg have one win against Portugal in 17 matches back in 1961!
  • Portugal have won their last ten straight games against Luxembourg
  • Portugal have scored at least two goals in eight of ten WCQ matches

Luxembourg vs Portugal Prediction

It will be interesting to see how Portugal will react after losing two crucial points in Belgrade. They can’t afford any more mishaps against a team they have beaten ten straight times. 

Beating Azerbaijan by 1-0 at home must be a concern for Fernando Santos as his team struggled against the Azeris compact defense. Luxembourg play the same style and they will do their best to make it tough for Ronaldo and co.

It is quite clear that Portugal are favorites with the bookies thus all markets favoring Portugal are very low. We will take a chance and bet on Portugal’s win and three goals to be scored in the match.
