Jovic vs Cristiano and Joao Felix
In Group 2 there is a lot of problems for Serbia and Portugal. With Serbia only having four points and Portugal only on two, both teams need a victory that places them above a second-place Luxembourg, but also with four points.
As it stands right now, both international teams would be out of the Euro 2020 qualifiers, so the clash this Saturday between those of Luka Jovic and those of Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Félix will be a battle.
Although the Portuguese national team are the current European champions, they started off on the wrong foot in this year's tournament, drawing against Ukraine and Serbia in the first two games, which has seen them drop to fourth place in the group table.
With Cristiano Ronaldo leading as captain and the possible presence of the Atletico Madrid player Joao Felix in the chosen eleven for Fernando Santos, Portugal are practically obliged to secure the win.
And the Portuguese will have a second opportunity, a guaranteed position in the case of not qualifying in first or second place in their group due to their status as champions of the UEFA League of Nations.
But in front of them will be nothing more and nothing less than the Serbia of a Madrid Luka Jovic author of two goals in the last three meetings with his team, an international team that is in third place in the group and in which Ljubisa Tumbakovic will debut at the head of the team as coach instead of Mladen Krstajic.
