⭕ Match Preview

Ireland vs Portugal predictions, all eyes will be on the Aviva Stadium when the Republic of Ireland and Portugal face each other in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers
Portugal are aiming to overtake Serbia in the top spot in Group A, and they will likely try their hand at Boys in Green.
As usual, the player to watch out for in the away team is Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Luxembourg.
The likes of Bernando Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Jota were also included, while Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix was not in the squad.
Ireland, on the other hand, missed out on a place at the World Cup finals 
Ireland's pride, however, will be at stake in Thursday's qualifiers.
Ireland will be looking for a repeat of the 4-0 International Friendlies vs Qatar win.
Their more recent score reveals that quality has proven in the Irish defence. Ireland are ruthless at the back, scoring the number of goals past their keeper over their previous 6 matches with 4 goals.
Portugal will come into the game after 5-0 WC Qualification – European win vs Luxembourg in their last game.
In that match, Portugal had 55% possession and 21 attempts on goal with 11 on target. For Portugal, the goalscorers are Cristiano Ronaldo (8′, 13′, 87′), Bruno Fernandes (17′) and João Palhinha (69′). Luxembourg got 3 attempts on goal with 2 on target.
A string of dependable performances by Portugal's defensive unit has resulted in their 'goals on goal' tally to 3 of their last 6 total matches. During the same time, their attack power alone had managed to score 16. Such a trend would of course not continue into this game.
The last league meeting featuring these teams was the WC Qualifiers – European match day 4 on 01/09/2021 when it finished Portugal 2-1 Ireland.
In that match, Portugal managed to control 72% possession and 29 attempts on goal with 7 on target. The goalscorer is Cristiano Ronaldo (89′, 96′).
At the other end, Ireland had 6 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. John Egan (45′) scored the goal.
The competition was led by Matej Jug.
All eyes will be on the Aviva Stadium as the Republic of Ireland and Portugal face each other in 
the 2022 World Cup qualifiers 
Portugal are aiming to overtake Serbia in the top spot in Group A, and they will likely try their hand at Boys in Green. As usual, the player to watch out for in the away team is Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Luxembourg.
Ireland, on the other hand, missed out on a place at the 2022 World Cup finals. Ireland's pride, however, will be at stake in Thursday's qualifiers.
However, the visitors wanted this win more than the hosts. Portugal's defenders should have held off WBA forward Callum Robinson as he scored twice in a 3-0 win over Azerbaijan.
Portugal can score when they play against Ireland, who may find it difficult to get a goal of their own.
Hence we think that it will be a routine 0-2 winning score for Portugal coming full time.

Ireland vs Portugal Score Prediction: 0-2
