Portugal – Czech Republic
It’s time for some excellent Nations League action again! Let’s head to Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisboa where Portugal will host the Czech Republic. We will preview this game in our soccer betting tips.
Few days ago Portugal secured their first win in the tournament for the 2022/23 season. Selecao hosted Switzerland and showed their best qualities in both halves. Fernando Santos’ team dominated the game and scored four times for a spectacular 4-0 win.
After starting from the bench against Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo was in the line-up and showed once again why he’s the best international goalscorer in history. Manchester United’s star scored two of the four goals against the Crusaders. Meanwhile William Carvalho and Joao Cancelo added two more for the win.
It’s a luxury for the head coach Fernando Santos to have so much players to choose from. Against Switzerland he had the chance to rotate the team again and start Bernardo Silva and Rafael Leao from the bench. Portugal’s depth is just scary at the moment.
The Czech Republic have the same amount of points as the leader Portugal right now – 4. They were incredibly close to beating Spain in the previous round, but conceded an equalising goal in the 90th minute. It was very disappointing to lose two points like that.
We can say the Czech team made a solid performance against La Roja. Pesek and Kuchta moved them very close to winning, but Spain’s Inigo Martinez equalised in the last minutes of the match. Still it was a very solid performance from the hosts.
That’s the soccer betting tips for the Nations League clash between Portugal and the Czech Republic at the Jose Alvalade. Both teams have the same amount of points at the moment. One of them could suffer its first defeat for the 2022/23 season.
