Portugal – Algeria : Preview & Prediction
Portugal has a team that is (almost) unanimously recognized as the best player in the world, so it would be natural to include it in the list of favorites at the World, because the European Championship has shown that it has the cards in place for large companies. Yet the Lusitanians are excluded from the restricted circle of candidates for final victory. Who knows what point in the pride Cristiano Ronaldo does not decide to do the real phenomenon and drag his hips on the roof of the world. Difficult, because Germany, Brazil and Spain seem to have something more, but we have already learned that in football the impossible does not exist.
Portugal failed to win any of the last three friendly matches played, but worse than did Algeria, who lost all three of their last games.
The Argelia, in fact, have given way to adversaries certainly not irresistible as Iran, Saudi Arabia and even Cape Verde …
Despite suffering, Ronaldo and his partners still managed to qualify for Russia 2018 as before in the group avoiding the play-offs on the last day.
In the last round, in fact, Portugal won 2-0 at home against Switzerland and overtook Lichtsteiner and team-mates.
The Lusitanian’s score in the qualifying group, however, was very respectable: nine wins out of ten, only one loss (against Switzerland at the debut).
Beyond some recent hesitation Portugal remains a team of absolute level, although – ironically – with the usual offensive and implementation problems. Let’s play the 1 final result.
