PORTUGAL VS ISRAEL PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
There is no doubt about the strength of the Portuguese team, which owns a squad of the top stars of world football spread across 3 lines with cohesive gameplay. 8 qualifying matches brought 5 victories, 22 goals and conceded 6 times, the attack efficiency was nearly 3 goals per game. Outstanding scoring ability always brings spectacular football parties. In the last 4/7 matches of Portugal have 4 or more goals. Performance is maintained stable, in the last 5 matches, Santos’ army won 3, defeated Croatia. 9 times caught opponents in the net to pick up the ball. Preventing the defending Euro champion now seems an impossible task for Israel.
Since joining UEFA, Israel has failed to qualify for the European football festival’s qualifying round seven times in a row. The quality compared to the common ground is still limited, but Israel is building a very dedicated play. Located in Group G qualifying, after 10 matches Israel scored 16 goals but conceded 18 times, with an average of nearly 3.5 goals per game. The ability to attack is not bad, in the last 2 matches, the strikers contributed to 7 goals against Montenegro and Moldova. However, before Portugal was too dominant, the weakness in Israel’s defense was difficult to solve.
Portugal needs a victory to create psychological momentum while Israel’s defense is too fragile, it will be very adventurous for Under. In fact, the two previous meetings of the two teams had 8 goals scored.
Select: Over FT.
It is not difficult to assess the very disparate force correlation between the two teams. The fact that they have never appeared in a Euro and the 87th position on the FIFA rankings shows Israel’s limited strength. Not only that, Portugal is in the hands of the golden generation with the leading star C. Ronaldo. Compared to the time when Portugal won the Euro 2016 championship, the current squad is much more appreciated.
Israel’s recent performance is quite positive, but the 0-2 defeat against Denmark shows the level gap. In the opposite direction, Portugal 3/5 recent matches and maintained an unbeaten record, the victims of Santos’ students included Croatia. Not only superior in class, but Portugal’s competitive motivation is also different. Too many advantages, a jubilant victory for the reigning European champion is expected.
Select: Portugal FT.
The European odds are highly appreciated that Portugal won. With the level of C.Ronaldo and his teammates, it doesn’t take too much effort to achieve the goal. The ability of Israel to surprise is almost zero with the current force correlation.
Select: Portugal FT.
The speed to be pushed up right after the opening whistle is predictable. Israel’s defense can hardly stand before the Portuguese strikers with a performance of nearly 3 goals in the qualifying round. The last 4/5 matches of the home team had goals before the break, 2 of which appeared 2 or more goals.
Select: Portugal H1.
Portugal vs Israel prediction: Portugal 2-0 Israel H1 (3-1 FT).
