Portugal host Luxembourg on Monday evening in a Euro 2024 qualifier. We think there’s an enticing market in this contest which we have selected as our bet of the day.
Portugal have looked impressive in their Euro 2024 qualifiers so far, picking up a maximum 12 points from their opening four fixtures. Roberto Martinez has enjoyed a strong start in his new post and with the talent at his disposal, Portugal will be one of the nations to watch should they continue their form and qualify for next summer’s tournament in Germany.
Martinez will be grateful that forward Cristiano Ronaldo is still continuing his international career and still able to deliver what he does best, goals. The 38-year-old has provided Portugal with five goals in their four Euro 2024 qualifiers so far – including two braces against Luxembourg and Liechtenstein.
Ronaldo’s form has not just been exclusive for his national team either. He has been among the goals in the Saudi Pro League, where of course he is the division’s leading man. In six games for Al-Nassr in 2023-24 thus far, he has found the back of the net on six occasions, with his side sixth in the table.
The Portuguese icon continues to defy Father Time and he continues to show that he is still more than capable of competing on this stage, proving that he still a tiresome opponent to come up against as a defender. He has had a habit of scoring braces for Portugal recently and we feel that this can continue against Luxembourg, whom he did fire two past in their previous meeting back in March.
