The most exciting game in FIFA Confederations Cup 2017’s Group A is coming up today, and you better not miss your chance to bet on Russia v Portugal!
Online betting news in Russia expect great things of their national team this year. Not only because they managed to trash Hungary by 3-0 in an international friendly a few weeks ago, but also because they have been showing constant development of performances ever since. And this might as well be the perfect time for Russia to win a football trophy once again.
However, they have no easy task as they are facing Cristiano Ronaldo and his Euro 2016 winner mates tonight. Should Russia win, they would surely be group winners. Should Portugal win, they’d take over the leading position from the home side. So we can’t really say there isn’t much at stake on tonight’s football derby…
Will Russia beat Portugal today?
Online sportsbooks in Russia are also counting on a tight battle. However, they believe that the away team will be favourites to win: if you want to bet on Russia v Portugal, you better go for Portugal, unless you want to bet on the underdogs. The odds for Portugal to win are 2.00 (1/1) at Bet365, while those for Russia to win are 4.00 (3/1) at Betway.
A draw would be better result for Russia as they are in a 2 point advantage as of today, thanks to defeating New Zealand while Portugal tied Mexico. However, let’s not forget the fact that Portugal has a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in the team, who definitely wouldn’t be satisfied with failing to win two games in a row…Bet on Ronaldo to score for 2.00 (1/1) at Betfair!
