Italy – Portugal Prediction & Tips
Why not try it? It is the mantra of Italy that, after having secured the permanence in Serie A with a great performance in Poland (Biraghi at the end), must beat Portugal and hope that the Lusitanians lose at home with Poland already relegated. It will not be easy because Portugal is a solid team with excellent individuality. It is no coincidence that he is a reigning European champion with a full score, having beaten both rivals. The positive thing is that Cristiano Ronaldo was once again in Turin, but in front of the “3 Silva” (Bernardo, Rafa and Andrè) are doing very well. Mancini seeks less hope and more concreteness, so he tries to re-launch in the trident Ciro Immobile, supported on the sides by Insigne and Chiesa. Confirmed Biraghi, previous match-winner, and the excellent Barella, but the certainties are the couple of “technical” midfield Verratti – Jorginho and the two defensive leaders of Juventus Bonucci and Chiellini.
Portugal leads Group 3 with 6 points, Italy follows 4.
However, the Blues lead clearly in the 26 direct matches (18-6).
A total of 2 goals have been scored in 9 of the last 13 matches of the Lusitanians.
From 5 consecutive matches in Italy the total networks are less than 3.
The top scorer of Portugal is Cristiano Ronaldo (85 goals), but he is absent, while on the other side is the defender Chiellini (8).
Difficult to make a prediction for Italy, a team that seems to be growing but is constantly settling. The Blues have not appeared very concrete and certainly Fernando Santos is not exactly an offensive coach, especially without his CR7 phenomenon.
