Portugal vs Egypt: The first of the two friendly matches that Portugal will play will be against Egypt, this Friday night in Zurich
Portugal have ensured their presence on the 2018 World Cup by finishing in 1st place of Group B on the European World Cup Qualifiers with 27 points conquered, thanks to a record of 9 victories and 1 loss.
On the 10 rounds played, the Portuguese has scored 32 goals and has only conceded 4, resulting on an average of 3.6 goals per match.
Since the final of the Euro 2016 against France, Fernando Santos’ pupils have only had 3 losses (1 of them after extra-time) in 20 matches played.
Egypt has earned the right of playing the Russia World Cup after having finished in 1st place of the Group E of the African qualifiers with 13 points conquered, thanks to a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.
When it comes to goals, they scored 8 goals and conceded 4, presenting an average of 2 goals per match. On their last 3 matches, the team led by Hector Cuper didn’t record a single loss.
Considering that this is a friendly match, I see a good opportunity for us to explore the goals’ market here.
On this chapter, Portugal has been delivering, having inclusively been the 4th best attack of the European World Cup Qualifiers, only behind Germany, Belgium and Spain.
Regarding Egypt, despite not being a team that scores a lot of goals on a match, they tend to be consistent when it comes to finishing, having scored in 13 of their last 15 matches played.
Portugal vs Egypt – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I should also mention that in Zurich there will be two of the most in form players at the moment: on one side Cristiano Ronaldo.
Who has 22 goals scored and is in clear ascension after a less exciting start to the season, and on the other side Mohamed Salah that already counts with 28 goals in 31 Premier League’s round.
