Our match prediction:
The match has been rearranged after the unhappy events in Brussels and will be played in Leiria instead of Brussels, with both sides having a lot to prove. The pressure will be on Portugal, who have largely struggled since booking their ticket to France, suffering defeats to Russia and Bulgaria, while failing to impress against Luxembourg as well. The weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Bulgaria proved that the Selecao are in desperate need of a proven goalscorer, and it is difficult to predict that Fernando Santos’ side will show a massive improvement in Leiria. Belgium will be heading to the Euro 2016 finals as one of the in-form sides as they not only won the first place in their qualifying group, but also defeated Italy 3-1 in their last international friendly. A great game of football is clearly on the cards, but with Belgium winning last five matches on all fronts, we are backing them to continue the trend.
