Luxembourg vs Portugal Preview and Prediction 2021

Luxembourg vs Portugal predictions for Tuesday’s 2022 World Cup Qualifier at Stade Josy Barthel. Can the hosts cause another upset after their weekend win against the Republic of Ireland? Read on for our free World Cup Qualifying predictions and betting tips.

Portugal have won all ten previous meetings between the sides, keeping clean sheets in nine.

That winning sequence and series of clean sheets included 0-2 and 3-0 victories in Euro 2020 Qualifying.

Luxembourg have risen to 98th in the FIFA Rankings but are still rated 93 places lower than the reigning European champions.

Hosts’ progress not enough against the Portuguese

Portugal have got their 2022 World Cup Qualifying campaign off to a less than impressive start, but Fernando Santos’ side should still have too much class for Luxembourg this Tuesday night.

The European champions could only manage a 2-2 draw against Serbia at the weekend following an underwhelming 1-0 success at home to Azerbaijan in their first outing, though it’s hard to envisage anything other than a Portugal triumph at Stade Josy Barthel, despite Luxembourg’s upward curve.

The hosts’ recent progress was confirmed with a tremendous 0-1 victory away to the Republic of Ireland in their opener, however, Luc Holtz’ side have lost all ten previous encounters against the Portuguese including 0-2 and 3-0 defeats in Euro 2020 Qualifying.

They’re still ranked some 93 places below the visitors who should simply prove too good here, and with Portugal winning nine of those previous ten meetings without conceding, we’re backing an away win to nil this Tuesday alongside a 0-2 correct score.
