PORTUGAL V LUXEMBOURG
Portugal are hoping to win again after their last result, the 3-0 International Friendlies success against Qatar.
Fixtures with Portugal have proved to be engaging ones recently with a lot of goalmouth action being a real hallmark. Over their past six games, a total of 21 goals have been scored for both sides combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 12 of those belonging to Portugal.
In that match, Luxembourg had 51% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, Serbia had 11 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Dušan Vlahović (68') was the scorer for Serbia.
The stats tell the story, and Luxembourg have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. Defensively, Luxembourg have not been doing too well. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, of course.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
SERBIA V AZERBAIJAN
Serbia will be looking for another win after the 0-1 WC Qualifiers - Europe success vs Luxembourg.
In that game, Serbia had 49% possession and 11 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. The scorer for Serbia was Dušan Vlahović (68'). Luxembourg got 11 shots at goal with 1 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that huge efforts have been put in by the Serbia rearguard. Serbia have been stingy, seeing the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous 6 outings standing at 4.
Since a loss in their previous game against Ireland in WC Qualifiers - Europe competition, Azerbaijan will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, Azerbaijan managed 64% possession and 15 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. For their opponents, Rep. of Ireland had 18 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. Callum Robinson (7', 39') and Chiedozie Ogbene (90') scored for Ireland.
It has become apparent that Azerbaijan have suffered from a lack of goals over their last 6 games, netting the unsatisfactory return of only 4. In those matches, Milli have also seen the collective goal aggregate against them equal 11. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if such a trend might be sustained in this upcoming match or not.
Prediction: Both team to score
TIGRE V MITRE
Tigre will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-1 Primera B Nacional losing effort in their last game against Estudiantes Buenos Aires.
Tigre have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They’ve managed to rack up 10 during that time and have conceded a total of 5. We shall soon find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on here.
Mitre will go into this encounter after a 4-0 Primera B Nacional win against Quilmes in their most recent outing.
In the course of their six latest matches, Hernán Ortiz's Mitre have turned their attacks into goals 8 times therefore giving them a goals scored per game average of 1.33.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
