International football fixtures: Portugal vs Andorra preview, prediction, team news November 2020
Portugal are growing increasingly confident especially after winning the previous Euro, and the team grows stronger year by year. This match against Andorra hardly seems a contest as this overpowered squad faces a meek Andorra who have few and far victories in between.
Team news, Portugal suffer a major blow as Cristiano Ronaldo gets injured
Ronaldo fans’ rejoice as he returned back to full fitness after suffering from COVID didn’t last long as he suffered an ankle injury against Lazio. He will reportedly miss the Andorra clash. Rui Patricio will keep the posts as usual as will half the Wolves squad along with a few players from Manchester City including Cancelo in defence.
He’s joined by the new crop of talented youngsters up front, including Joao Felix, Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva who have all been around for so long they feel like veterans despite their young age. All the stalwarts will look to dominate rather than play as a team because of domestic rivalries and this could be a hindrance to the overall performance of the team.
Andorra is hardly a threat to a team like Portugal which seems to be on the verge of a new dawn. That being said, Portugal has too many stars for its own good, a lot of domestic rivalries could be seen cropping up as a lot of English players are present in the squad primarily from Manchester City and Wolves.
Ronaldo’s absence from the game might affect not affect Portugal with the young talent they’ve got. We expect Bruno Fernandes and Andre Silva on the score sheet. Andorra could consider themselves lucky if they get a goal but previous results say that’s probably for naught.
Our prediction for this match out of all International football fixtures is Andorra 0 – 4 Portugal
