Portugal will be looking to make it four consecutive wins in all competitions. This would put them nicely going into the three consecutive rounds of World Cup qualifiers starting with the game against Luxembourg. Portugal already have a good lead in the group but the top spot is far from certain. Meanwhile, Qatar struggle against the top opposition and they were beaten 3-1 by Portugal in the recent game.
Goals more than 2.5
Portugal have kept just one clean sheet in the last five matches. It has been the problem for Portugal over the last few months. It is unlikely that the situation would change against a Qatar outfit who would already be believing about goals after scoring in the recent meeting back in September.
Both teams to score – yes
The recent friendly between Qatar and Portugal finished as a 3-1 game in favour of the latter. Even though Portugal do not have a problem when scoring goals – something that they have managed at over 2.5 goals in the last three games – they do find it difficult to defend. Qatar should be able to grab at least a consolation goal.
