Portugal v Ireland Prediction - Form (All Competitions)

Portugal last saw international action in the UEFA European Championship, where they were knocked out in the round of 16 by Belgium after mixed results in the group stages. Ireland’s recent record hasn’t been as sterling, as they had only managed one win in five games.  Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.

Portugal v Ireland Prediction - Preview

Portugal

Portugal are currently on top of qualifying Group A with two wins, one draw, and a goal difference of three which gives them 7 points. In their latest qualifier on Matchday 3 last 31 March, they beat Luxembourg 3-1 at Josy Barthel Stadium. Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Jota and Joao Palhinha all scored for the winning side. They however failed to defend the EURO title they won in 2016 in this year’s edition, as they fell to Belgium 1-0. Ronaldo’s recent return to Manchester United after 12 years away is sure to shine the spotlight on the still stellar player, as well as his new Old Trafford teammate Bruno Fernandes. Manager Fernando Santos’ side also has other reputed names such as Ruben Dias and Pepe, who can prove troublesome for their succeeding opponents.

The Republic of Ireland

The Republic of Ireland are currently fourth in the Group A table, with two losses and a -2 goal difference for 0 points. Their losses in the tournament had been to Serbia and Luxembourg respectively. Their only two goals of the qualifiers have been in their defeat to Serbia (2-3), courtesy of Alan Browne and James Collins. In their last match, a friendly against Hungary on 9 June at Ference Szusza Stadium, they held their opponents to a scoreless draw. Manager Stephen Kenny, despite having less top-flight level players compared to the Portuguese, believes that his squad won’t be daunted in the qualifier, and promises that they will give their all against their star-studded side.

Portugal v Ireland Prediction - Final Thoughts

Portugal have all the chips on their side in this match, with the home turf and the talent advantage. If anything, this is the perfect opportunity for Ronaldo to prove that he is still arguably the world’s best by scoring a goal or two. Fernandes and Jota could also make significant contributions. It will be a tall order for Ireland to contain to Portuguese, and they have the potential to rise up to the challenge. However, the Selecao are poised to continue their unbeaten run in this competition. Let’s take a look at the prediction.
