Ireland

The Republic of Ireland have failed to qualify for the World Cup after winning just one and losing three of their six games so far. They are currently 11 points behind the final qualification berth in the group currently occupied by their Thursday opponents. Ireland did deliver a 0-3 win on the road against Azerbaijan. But it was their first win of the campaign, and they were also winless in 16 of their past 19 fixtures.

Portugal

Barring one slip-up against current group leaders Serbia, 2016 European Champions Portugal are currently placed second in the table. October's fixtures saw Portugal run out convincing 3-0 winners in a friendly battle with Qatar before producing a five-star performance to sweep aside Luxembourg 5-0. Portugal have scored 16 goals and shipped just two - and they have prevailed in six of their last seven World Cup Qualifying games away from home.

 

 

Prediction

Since Ireland are already out of the competition, they would not be motivated enough to go after a win. Portugal will be looking to snatch top spot in Group A from Serbia. Even though the Republic of Ireland were able to take the game to Portugal in their latest meeting, Portugal should prevail here without much hassle.

Final Results:1-3
