On Wednesday the 1st of September 2021, the Republic Of Ireland travel to Portugal as first-place take on fourth in Group A of the World Cup 2022 qualifiers at Estadio Algarve, Faro.
After beating Hungary 0-3, losing 2-4 to Germany and drawing 2-2 with France, Portugal went through to the knock-out stages of the Euros just to be defeated 1-0 by Belgium regardless of the dominance of their stats during the game.
In terms of their World Cup qualification group so far, Portugal are top of Group A on goal difference, but they certainly haven’t been convincing, beating Azerbaijan just 1-0, drawing 2-2 with Serbia, then only managing a 1-3 win against Luxembourg who are ranked 96th in the world.
Not only have the Republic Of Ireland not qualified for any recent international competitions, but they’ve also failed to win a competitive match since Euro 2020 qualification in 2019 where they only managed a 2-0 win over Gibraltar who are ranked 194th in the world.
The Republic Of Ireland have only played two games so far but have lost both. They lost 3-2 to Serbia and 0-1 to Luxembourg, leaving them fourth out of five in Group A above Azerbaijan on goal difference,
Head to head, these two teams last faced each other in 2014 in a friendly that resulted in a 5-1 win to Portugal. The game prior to this was all the way back in 2005 when it was Ireland that managed a 1-0 home victory.
