class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>This will be the fifth competitive clash between these two sides in the last six years and our tipster is backing the trend of goals to continue
Portugal continue their World Cup qualifying campaign on Saturday when they travel to Serbia in Group A.
Both these sides got off to winning starts on Wednesday evening, although neither were particularly convincing with the European champions sneaking past Azerbaijan 1-0 and the Serbs overcoming Ireland by a 3-2 scoreline.
Serbia vs Portugal Latest Odds
Fernando Santos’ side have won each of their last 10 World Cup qualifiers and also recorded victories in each of their two most recent visits to the Serbian capital.
Another success for the Iberian nation is priced at a potentially appealing 7/10 (1.70) with bet365.
The hosts, though, are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions and are offered at 15/4 (4.75), with the draw available at 11/4 (3.75).
Serbia vs Portugal Team News
Cristiano Ronaldo endured a frustrating evening against Azerbaijan, failing to score despite managing eight shots, but should get chance to make amends this weekend. Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix will be hoping for a starting berth in Belgrade after both coming off the bench in midweek.
For Serbia, Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice off the bench on Wednesday and should come into the starting eleven.
Serbia vs Portugal Preview
Serbia have been in strong scoring form on home soil in the last few years, with nine of their previous 12 competitive home matches seeing them net at least twice.
Indeed, Dragan Stojkovic’s team showed their attacking prowess in a 4-2 loss when they hosted Portugal in Euro 2020 qualifying two years ago, whilst the reverse fixture in Lisbon was an entertaining 1-1 draw.
These sides have met six times in the last 14 years, with both teams to score paying out in every encounter, and so opposing a clean sheet when they clash on Saturday should appeal.
Serbia vs Portugal Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 4/5 (1.80) which is a price big enough for consideration, which combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 6/5 (2.20).
