Portugal v United States Predictions


Portugal v United States Betting Tips Explained


Portugal left it late, but they were able to snatch a place in next summer’s World Cup on the final night of qualifying and they will now look to wrap up their 2017 schedule with one more friendly victory on Tuesday night.

The Portuguese put themselves in a shaky position when they were beaten by Switzerland in the first game of their World Cup qualifying campaign, and although they were able to win their next eight games they were unable to overhaul a Swiss side that kept on winning matches to hold them at bay. However, the two teams still had one more meeting, on the final night, and Portugal snatched a World Cup berth from under their visitors’ noses thanks to a 2-0 victory.

With that crisis averted – and a play-off tie avoided – Portugal ran out 3-0 winners when they hosted Saudi Arabia last week, and they will now look to make it back-to-back friendly wins by beating a United States team that are in crisis following a miserable World Cup qualifying campaign that led to the departure of coach Bruce Arena, who was heavily criticised by the media and supporters as the national team failed to secure a spot in Russia next summer.

Dave Sarachan has been handed the reins on a temporary basis and he has opted for a young and largely inexperienced squad, ditching many senior players that played a role in a dreadful qualifying campaign that was ended by a 2-1 defeat to Trinidad & Tobago last month. Blooding young players in a friendly match is never a bad idea, but they are certainly going to be given a rude welcome to international football by the European champions, even if they are without star names like Cristiano Ronaldo.

Portugal should run out comfortable winners on Tuesday night, winning by a couple of goals, and I also expect them to keep a clean sheet in the process. The Portuguese have not conceded in any of their last four international fixtures, winning by at least two goals in each of the last three, and during their World Cup qualifying they shut out their opponents on no less than seven occasions with eight of their nine wins coming via two goals or more. Everything points to another straightforward win for them here.
