Faroe Islands vs Portugal Preview
Portugal travel north to Faroe Islands to play football against a nation that can’t break the 50,000 residents mark and which is actually part of Kingdom of Denmark. The football team is actually doing quite well to be ranked #111 in the world since the nation is so small, and their victory against Latvia is not a solitary case. Faroe Islands win one in ten, and stay undefeated in one in five matches they play. In last 11 matches they have 4 wins (Latvia, Liechtenstein, Greece twice), a draw, and 6 defeats.
Interestingly, Faroe Islands are ahead of Portugal in the World Cup 2018 qualification Group B as they have four points and Portugal have three. Switzerland are topping the group with six and Portugal have to play catch-up.
Faroe Islands vs Portugal Predictions
Portugal made it look easy against Andorra a couple of days ago, and this was actually a rare case of Portugal winning by such a high margin against minnows. Even though they didn’t call up some players such as Nani, Danny, Ricardo Carvalho and Fabio Coentrao, Portugal aced that match and are hoping to do the same to Faroe Islands.
It won’t be that easy though. Faroe Islands are a tougher side than Andorra and can’t be expected to concede six. They can concede two, maybe three, but only if their opponent is having a good day.
