Todays football prediction for Ukraine vs Portugal
Ukraine face Portugal in the EC Qualification Group B 8th round match. The match will be played on Monday, October 14 from 19:45 UK at NSK Olimpijs’kyj.
Ukraine is the leader in the group and so far they have not lost a single match having 5 wins and 1 draw. They started qualifying with a visit to their upcoming opponent, which ended with zero draw, and then the team led by legend of Ukrainian football Andriy Shevchenko recorded 5 consecutive wins. It was 1:2 against Luxembourg, 5:0 against Serbia, 1:0 over Luxembourg, 0:3 on Lithuania’s visit, and on Friday they again beat Lithuania 2-0 at Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist in Kharkiv. With both hits coming from Ruslan Malinovskiy who is a footballer on the Italian Atalanta.
Portugal, as their rival, have no loss as they have played one match less with 3 wins and 2 draws. They started with two straight draws in front of their fans – 0: 0 against Ukraine and 1:1 against Serbia, causing concern at The Navigators camp. However, the team led by Fernando Santos recorded 5 consecutive victories as two of them were in the UEFA Nations League finals, which were won by Cristiano Ronaldo and company at home, and in their last qualifying match they went down 3-0 on Friday v Luxembourg.
The upcoming match can be decisive as to which of the two teams will win the group. However, Portugal should not forget that Serbia is only 4 points behind them, and if they are defeated they can complicate their task and worry about the latter for second place and for this reason our todays football prediction was win for Portugal. Enjoy!
