Luxembourg vs Portugal Match Preview

Portugal need to win in Luxembourg to secure their place at Euro 2020 – and after Thursday’s demolition of Lithuania they are not expected to have any problems.

The reigning European champions will finish second at best in Group B having been put in their place by the Ukraine, who took four points against them – but the brinkmanship is, in any case, only in keeping with how Portugal conquered the continent in 2016!

Fernando Santos’ side have one point in the table to spare over Serbia, who host the Ukraine simultaneously, so there is no room for error if the holders of this title and also the UEFA Nations League want to avoid contesting the play-offs in March.

It finished 6-0 to Portugal against Lithuania at the Estadio Algarve on Thursday with Cristiano Ronaldo inevitably taking centre stage, scoring a hat-trick to leave himself only two short of a century for his country. Pizzi, Goncalo Paciencia and Bernardo Silva bagged the others.

Luxembourg, meanwhile, lost 3-2 in Serbia and their four points in this group all came against Lithuania. They will just miss out on the play-offs for teams in the bottom tier of the Nations League, unless North Macedonia can qualify by right and that looks unlikely.

Ronaldo, who had been nursing an injury while playing for Juventus recently, will probably be required again here with qualification still on the line – and it would be no surprise to see him reach the hundred goals mark for Portugal in a comfortable win for his team.
