Competition: UEFA Nations League
Market: Andre Silva to score anytime
Odds: 11/5 @ Bet 365
Even without Cristiano Ronaldo in their squad, Portugal will look to make it two wins on the bounce in the inaugural UEFA Nations League when they travel to the Stadion Śląski on Thursday.
For new Poland boss Jerzy Brzęczek, the former international midfielder knows he must improve on his sides performances out in Russia over the summer. Thursday’s hosts finished rock bottom of Group H and also held the worst defensive record out of the four sides. Coming off the back of a pair of 1-1 draws against Ireland and Italy, Brzęczek will know he must find a way to turn around Poland’s recent defensive record. They have now managed to record just two clean sheets in their last 10 competitive matches.
If Fernando Santos’s Portugal side are to make it two wins on the bounce and widen their advantage at the top of the table, one man to watch will be Sevilla striker Andre Silva. With Juventus captain Cristiano Ronaldo not named in the squad, the 22-year-old is expected to lead the line. Enjoying a very impressive start to the new La Liga campaign, Silva has seven goals to his name and has already bagged more goals than Lionel Messi. The Sevilla man also scored Portugal’s goal in their 1-0 win over Italy last month and has four in his last five across all competitions.
