Huge game in the Euro qualifiers will take place on Sunday night in Portugal as the Portugal look to move to the top of the table when they take on Serbia. Serbia and Portugal both had poor starts to the campaign with Portugal losing to Albania and Serbia struggling in all three games to be fair. Portugal have in their squad the best player on the planet with Cristiano Ronaldo the Real Madrid star leading by example for his country. Portugal have played three and won two by 1-0, Ronaldo has scored both goals. It would be too simple to say Portugal's hopes rest in Ronaldo's hands and talents but the two are veyr much entertwinned. with Quaeresma, Nani there is other talented players in the Portugal squad but they do all play second fiddle to Ronaldo.
Serbia are in the midst of a massive rebuilding phase but they have a squad that has experience with Chelsea's Matic and Ivanovich and Manchester City's Kolorov. Along with Tadic and Tosic there is talent sprinkled through thisSerbia team. There is no doubt their loss to Denmark last time out in the qualifiers will have been disappointing for the team especially after taking the lead. But defensively Serbia will know that the target is to keep Ronaldo quiet on Sunday night, if they can achieve that they will have a chance of getting a result.
Two teams who's strengths are based around solid defences, I am taking the unders here. There have been a couple of surprising goalfest in the Qualifers so far this weekend but I do not think this will be one of them. Take the unders and cash a winner.
