Portugal vs Switzerland Betting Tips
- Updated: 5th June 2019
Portugal vs Switzerland – International Friendlies :The Estádio do Dragão, in the city of Porto, is the stage for this 1st semi-final of this new UEFA competition.
Where Portugal, that are currently in 7th place of the FIFA Rankings, will face off against Switzerland, that are the 8th best national team in the world.
To reach this final four of the Nations League, Portugal have won the group 3, that also had Italy and Poland in it.
The Portuguese side managed to get 2 victories and 2 draws on the 4 matches of the initial stage, not suffering any loss, with a ratio of 5 goals scored and only 3 goals conceded.
The team led by the manager Fernando Santos isn’t going through the best moment of form, since on the qualification stage for the EURO 2020,
Portugal couldn’t get more than 2 draws at home against Ukraine and Serbia, opponents that in theory are their direct rivals on the fight for qualification for the next European championships.
Still, after the loss in the World Cup against Uruguay, the Portuguese side hasn’t suffered any more loss, having gotten 3 victories and 5 draws on their last 8 matches, coming off 4 consecutive draws.
Switzerland comes into this decisive stage of the new competition, after having been better than Belgium and Iceland, although having the same points as the Belgians,
Switzerland had the advantage on the head-to-head record (losing 2-1 in Belgium and winning 5-2 in Switzerland, with a hat-trick from Seferovic), having advanced into this semi-final having a fantastic record of 14 goals scored and 5 goals conceded in 4 matches.
On the last matches played by the Swiss, already counting towards the EURO 2020 qualifiers, Switzerland has 1 victory against Georgia and 1 draw at home against Denmark, where after being 3-0 up at the 84th minute, they’ve allowed the Danes to tie the match.
Petkovic’s side only suffered 1 loss and on a friendly match against Qatar on the last 5 matches, having managed to win on 3 occasions, besides the other draw against Denmark.
For this encounter, Portugal have to be considered favourites and I believe that favouritism will be confirmed on a victory from the Portuguese side, that has players in excellent form.
The return of Cristiano Ronaldo (that will make his debut on this Nations League) and upon a stadium that will be rooting for Portugal, I believe that with more or less difficulty Portugal will be the 1st finalists of this competition.
