The Portugal national team will play at home against Turkey as part of the 2022 World Cup qualification play-off. The meeting will take place on March 24.
The Portuguese national team failed the final matches of the qualifying group stage, which is why they finished second and could not get into the final of the 2022 World Cup directly.
The key for Portugal were the meetings with Ireland and Serbia, in which she scored only one point.
After a guest meeting with the Irish, which ended in a draw, the team of Fernando Santos unexpectedly lost at home to the Serbs.
Interestingly, Serbia, which eventually took first place in the group, scored the decisive goal a minute before the final whistle.
In the upcoming match, the Portuguese will play the strongest squad.
The Turkish team, meanwhile, fought to the last with the Netherlands for first place in the group, but in the end it remained second.
Interestingly, in ten matches of the current qualification, the Turkish team suffered only one defeat. True, it was a very painful defeat – 1:6 on the field of the Netherlands.
It is also worth adding that in the group stage of the selection, Turkey conceded 16 goals. For example, Norway, which became the third, conceded only eight goals.
Turkey has necessarily scored at least one match in the previous eight matches.
Forecast and rate
You can bet on Portugal in this match for 1.41, 1xbet download offer a draw for 5.15, and Turkey’s victory for 10.00.
Turkey also has a very good squad, but against the background of the top teams, it looks quite so-so. In addition to the autumn meeting with the Dutch, you can remember the matches of Euro 2020 – it was very bad.
And the next game is unlikely to be an exception. The powerful line-up of the Portuguese is able to beat Turkey with a difference of at least two goals.
Bet – Portugal win + match total over 2.5 for 2.11.
