Portugal vs Ireland Match Preview and Live Stream

Portugal are pretty much one of the favourites for the whole tournament despite an ageing Cristiano Ronaldo. They have a brilliant team consisting of several stars such as Diogo Jota and Joao Felix, and they have put their depth to use during the qualifiers. They have 7 points from 3 games in their group, and the group leaders only dropped points in a 2-2 draw vs Serbia.

The Republic of Ireland haven’t really been known for their extravagant football. Rather, their fans are the ones that tend to make each occasion memorable, and for that reason, we really hope they made the cut for the finals in Qatar next year. They aren’t really on course to do that with 2 losses out of two but can turn their luck around if they get anything against the giants in Portugal.

Portugal vs Ireland Match Prediction

We see only one winner here. Portugal are at their home ground and are doing very well so far in the tournament. It would take a herculean effort from the Irish to get anything against them, especially with some of the big names included in Fernando Santos’ squad. We got with a 3-0 Portugal win.
