  • Competition: UEFA Nations League
  • Date: 9th June 2022
  • Time: 18:45 UTC
  • Venue: Jose Alvalade Stadium

The top two sides of the Nations League Group A2 face off against each other as Portugal host the Czech Republic at the Jose Alvalade Stadium on Thursday. It is Cristiano Ronaldo's home ground from his Sporting CP days, which means we could see some extra special efforts by the footballing legend in this game.

Portugal vs Czech Republic Betting Tips

The Czech Republic are yet to play away from home for the first time in the Nations League this year. Their away performances overall in other competitions have looked unimpressive. They have failed to win 3 of their last 4 outings now. Combine that with Portugal's home record of 5 wins from the last 6 games, we have a clear winner here. Moreover, with the Czech side scoring an average of 2 goals in the Nations League this year, we expect them to get at least one goal in this one too, making a 3-1 Portugal win our best prediction for this tie. We will thus go for an ACCA of a home win and over 2.5 goals for this game.

  • Best Tip: Home / Over 2.5
  • Prediction: 3-1 Portugal

Portugal Team News

Cristiano Ronaldo plays at Sporting CP's home ground, and that will surely be the headline before the game on Thursday. The 37-year-old scored a brace to sink Switzerland in the first half itself, and there is no doubt that he is more likely to be on the scoresheet than not. Diogo Jota could be benched for Joao Felix to start this game as Jota has gone without any goal contribution for quite some time now. The pair of Felix and Cristiano, with Bernardo Silva just behind them could mean goosebumps for the Czech side.

Czech Republic Team News

This is a fairly inexperienced Czech side after a few veterans retired post the Euros. But, the young setup were able to put 2 past Spain in the previous game, and hold La Furia Roja to a draw too. The two young forwards Jakub Pesek and Jan Kuchta, who were both on the score-sheet against Spain, will be two players to watch for sure as they give the visitors the best chances of scoring against the mighty hosts. David Zima in the three-man defence will be tasked with controlling Cristiano Ronaldo in the left half-space, and if he can keep his cool, it would be a historic Czech night in Portugal.
