Portugal vs Ireland Preview and Livestream

Portugal are the 2016 UEFA Euro champions and are really one of the biggest nations in the world. That is why its no surprise that they are currently second in their FIFA WCQ Group, with 16 points from 6 games, with one game in hand over Serbia, who have 17 points. They have ensured qualification but are not going to lie down easy with their manager, Fernando Santos, calling the big guns for this game.

Ireland, meanwhile, are too poor. Their fans would have had big expectations when they were placed with Serbia, Portugal, Azerbaijan, and Luxembourg in the group, but they only have 5 points from their 6 group games so far. Portugal expectedly beat them in their prior Group A meeting this September at home by a 2-1 margin.

Portugal vs Ireland Prediction

Let’s be real, Ireland don’t stand a chance here. The Portuguese team is perhaps their best ever in history on paper while the Irishmen are somewhat of a weak team. We go with a 2-0 away win for Santos’ men here, which will put them on top of the table in Group A.
