As the last group games come through we are going to see a few games like this one that mean nothin to either team. Portugal have already qualified as Group winners and cant be caught and Serbia have nothing to play for but pride. GIven that Serbia though were excellent against Albania on Thursday night and really showed what the win meant to them when they beat Albania with two goals in Injury time I think we can expect a full effort from Serbia on Sunday evening. Ljajic, Kolorov and Ivanovich are the star men for Serbia with the Roma, Man City and Chelsea stars all banking big bucks in their respective leagues and being key players on top teams in their domestic leagues I see these three as the players who will drive Serbia in this game against Portugal.
Portugal on the other hand may take the opportunity to rest players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Mouthino as they have very busy club schedules and Portugal may not want to risk these guys in meaningless games. Portugal have qualified with ease and they will be one of the favourites for Euro2016 next year, a solid team with a stellar defence this is a team that believes in itself and after starting off the campaign with a loss in albania they have now won six on the trot to sow up top spot in their group.
Always hard to call this type of game when neither team has much to play for but given the prices I am going to go with the home under dog who playign for pride may just get a win against a Portugal team that are sure to have spent some time celebrating on Thursday night.
