Scotland – Portugal : Preview & Prediction
Scotland have suffered a disappointing defeat in Israel (2-1) against a selection that remained on 4 consecutive losses and was not favorite! This painful failure leaves Scotland still first but Israel and Albania also have 3 points in this group. The Scots had previously won 2 goals to 0 against Albania during the first day in the League of Nations. But the selection of McLeish is in great difficulty since last May since it has 4 defeats on its last 5 outings. A 5th to come against Portugal? Conversely, the Portuguese are in full swing after a World Cup last summer very disappointing. Cristiano Ronaldo’s squad is unbeaten in 3 games, scoring 1 draw against Croatia (1-1), the finalist of the last World Cup, and getting 2 wins in this League of Nations against Italy (1-0) at home and in Poland (3-2) this Thursday night.
