Betting on the Portugal (-0.5)
Cristiano Ronaldo is already 37 years old, but he is still a pretty much dangerous scorer who can singlehandedly take over a match. Ronaldo has already found the back of the net in the tournament, scoring one in Portugal’s 3-2 win in the opener against Ghana. Portugal finished group stage play with a 2-1-0 record, winning their first two assignments before getting upset by South Korea on Friday, 2-1. Nevertheless, Portugal can be considered an offensive juggernaut, considering that they already have six goals in the tournament and have +1.3 goals minus expected goals, thus far. Apart from Ronaldo, Portugal boast of midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who lead the squad with two goals. Five different Portugal players have scored at least a goal in the 202 World Cup to date.
Betting on the Switzerland (+0.5)
Switzerland are sailing into the knockout stages of the 2022 World Cup after going 2-1-0 in Group G. The Swiss are coming off a 3-2 win against Serbia to close out their schedule in the group stages, which came after a gallant stand in a 1-0 loss to Brazil. Switzerland are sure to find the Portuguese challenging to deal with on the field, but they can draw confidence from the fact that Portugal’s defense has been very suspect. Portugal have allowed two multi-goal games to their opponents in the tournament. Switzerland has allowed three goals in their last two games, but limiting a high-powered Brazil side to just a goal is a defensive performance that tells a lot about how capable the Swiss are in guarding their net. Goalkeeper Yann Sommer and defender Manuel Akanji are going to be leading the defense of the Swiss side.
Portugal wins, 2-1.
