  • KO: 20:45 CET
  • Venue: Venue Fortuna Arena (Praha)

With two games remaining in UEFA Nations League A, Group 2, Portugal will be keen to keep the pressure on section leaders Spain when they take on the Czech Republic at Fortuna Arena.

Currently 1 point behind Spain with the Czechs 3 further back, both sides know only a win will do if they are to have any chance of topping the section to advance to the semi-finals of the competition next summer.

Czech Republic vs Portugal Betting Tips: BTTS

Certainly, Portugal have the greater chance to progress in this competition with their final match, a home fixture against Iberian rivals and group leaders Spain. Back-to-back wins would be enough for the Portuguese, but that might be easier said than done, with the hosts usually proving a tough side to beat on their own patch.

Indeed, the hosts are unbeaten in their last 11 home matches since a loss to Scotland back in 2020, and while they will need a big turnaround to top the group, their home form should make this a tough and competitive fixture.

Scoring in each of their last 24 competitive home internationals, the Czechs last drew a blank on home soil all the way back in 2016, and we expect the hosts to find their way to goal on a night when both sides are likely to employ an attacking approach in search of all 3 points. 

Portugal claimed a 2:0 win when these nations last met in the group stage earlier this year. However, Portugal suffered a disappointing 1:0 loss at Switzerland last time out, and a much-improved display will be required if they are to return home with a much-needed 3 points.

Having seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 3 competitive home fixtures, including both of their two previous UNL matches, we expect a similar outcome here with both sides still in with a chance of finishing in top spot and likely to adopt an attacking approach in search of the points.

As such, we´ll take BTTS here with neither side appealing in the WDW market. A high-scoring contest is possible given both sides' struggles for respective home and away clean sheets, and while both need the win, we fancy a draw could be the likeliest outcome for this UNL contest.
