Andorra – Portugal: Preview & Prediction
They face, in the capital Andorra-a-Velha, in the National Stadium, Andorra, oriented by Koldo Alvarez and Portugal, directed by Fernando Santos,
in a meeting that puts face to face the fifth classified team of this group B and the second classified team, with the places to add 4 points and the visitors to add 21 points in the eight days that have already taken place.
The Andorran selection enters this match with only 4 points added in the already done days of this group of qualification for World-wide 2018, in a total of 24 points in dispute until the moment,
being also the team with less goals scored so far, with only two goals scored, and the second worst team in terms of defensive records,
having conceded seventeen goals so far (only Latvia has a worse record with 18 goals conceded).
As for the Portuguese team, it is up to them, like Switzerland, to follow directly to the World Cup in Russia, with seven wins and one defeat in Group B,
being the only slip before the Swiss, in the first day of this campaign.
The team have the best attack of the group, by far, with 28 goals scored (10 more than Switzerland), also having a very good defensive record with only 4 goals scored, two of them against the Swiss.
Prediction Andorra vs Portugal:
Picking up the complaints of Fernando Santos in March, where he complained about the conditions of both the airport (which would require a 3.5-hour bus ride) and the stadium grounds where the team will play,
I believe this could be a tricky game for Portugal that, despite everything, needs to get a win to stay in the fight for direct qualification.
As has been proved by the last home games, Andorra is not a team with whom it is easy to play at home (Switzerland won by only 1-2 and Hungary lost, for example).
In this way, I believe that this should be a demanding game for Portugal in physical and psychological terms,
taking into account what I have said, which leads me to believe that Portugal is slow to score
