Portugal vs Luxembourg Betting Tips


Portugal are set to record a comprehensive win over Luxembourg in their Euro 2020 qualifier at Estadio Jose Avalade. The hosts are unbeaten in the qualifiers and are coming off emphatic back-to-back victories. Facing a Luxembourg team who are without a win in the group, they are tipped in the handicap market.

Portugal Form & Team News 


Portugal are coming off an impressive 5-1 win in Lithuania last time out in the qualifiers. Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed four goals while William Carvalho added the fifth. 

Fernando Santos' men have been excellent lately winning the UEFA Nations League and going unbeaten in their last 11 matches. Having won their last four matches, they are priced at 1.05 for a win on Friday but with nine goals scored in their last two outings, I am backing a -3 handicap bet at 2.30.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been excellent for Portugal lately and found the net four times in the win over Lithuania. The captain should feature in attack on Friday alongside Joao Felix while the impressive Bernardo Silva is expected to retain his place in midfield.

Luxembourg Form & Team News


Luxembourg suffered a 3-1 defeat at home to Serbia in their previous qualifying outing. They fell two goals down and pulled one back through David Turpel before conceding the third 12 minutes from time.

Luc Holz's men have claimed just one win in Group B and are second bottom in the standings after five matches. They have lost their last three matches across all competitions which has them at a massive 29.00 to win on Friday while a draw is set at odds of 13.00.

David Turpel appears to be the biggest threat for Luxembourg and could be given a start after coming off the bench to score against Serbia. He is likely to be supported by Maurice Deville, who has just three goals in 39 matches for the national team.

Portugal vs Luxembourg Head to Head 


Portugal have claimed 11 wins and one draw while Luxembourg have just one victory from 13 previous matches. The Portuguese claimed a 2-0 victory the last time both teams met in a friendly back in 2015.

Portugal vs Luxembourg Betting Odds


Portugal are priced at a lowly 1.05 to win on Wednesday while Luxembourg are valued at a massive 29.00. A draw is set at odds of 13.00 with a home win to nil offered at 1.33 while a -3 handicap is paying 2.30.

Portugal are prominent in the player markets with Cristiano backed at 2.75 to score the first goal while Joao Felix (3.50) and Goncalo Guedes (5.00) could also be considered.

Portugal vs Luxembourg Match Up


As always Cristiano Ronaldo will be the go-to-man for Portugal with the Juventus forward scoring 12 goals in his last 10 matches. He has a great understanding with Bernardo Silva and with Joao Felix and Goncalo Guedes also in good form, the Portuguese should have too much quality for the visitors.

Luxembourg have had goalscoring problems having found the net just once in their last three matches. David Turpel has just one goal in his last five international appearances while Maurice Deville is currently on a lengthy goal drought for the national team.
