Portugal can take control of Group I and their own qualification after a disasterous start to this Euro2016 campaign. Having lost 1-0 to Albania in the opening round of fixtures the Portugese stole the game in Denmark in the 95th minute when Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winner deep in stoppage time. Now a home game against Armenia will lift the Portugese to the top of the Group if they can get the win. With an attacking triumpheret of Ronaldo, Queresma and Nani with Mouthino pulling the strings behind the Portugese should be far too strong for an Armenia side that have proven tough to beat but without any real scoring threats.
Armenia have played tough in the last couple of qualifying campaigns although their main player Borussia Dortmunds Mkhitaryian the midfielder has struggled this season along with the rest of his Borussia teammates but will be the key man for Armenia having missed the last two games with a knock. Armenia face a revamped Portugal side with Tiago, Carvalhyo and Boswinga all coming back into the squad after coming out of International retirement.

This game could be a tough one physically and there is no doubt that Armenia will give 100% but I just think the class of the portugese will win out in the end, Cristiano Ronaldo has been sensational this season and there is no reason to think he wont continue to be the difference for Portugal in games like this. Take Portugal -1 and lets bank on Ronaldo netting a couple.
