Portugal vs Italy Prediction 10 September 2018

Tournament: UEFA Nations League
Location: Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
Match date: 10.09.2018 at 19:45

On September 10 2018 at 19:45 at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica in the forthcoming match of the second game week of the UEFA Nations League group stage the local Portugal national team will play against Italy national team. Both of the teams are the ones of the highest level and yet they aren’t in their best conditions at the moment as it seems to us.

Portugal played their latest match against Croatia where they seemed to be stronger and yet they drew 1:1 in the end. Now they are to play their official game in the important competition. In the next few months Portugal will have to play without their leader Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad. The loss of such a player makes any team not as strong as it used to be.

As for Italy, they didn’t manage to make it to the World Cup for the first time in many years in the previous qualification. In their latest game against Poland they only managed to equalize and avoid a loss due to the goal scored on the last minutes of the match. The new manager of the teams will have to make a lot of changes to help Italy get back to the level they used to be on.

The teams seem to be in similar conditions and that’s why it’s rather hard to predict who are going to be the favorites this time. Yet, we should probably give a slight advantage to Portugal and only because of the status of the domestic pitch.
