LXB vs POR Dream11: Portugal supporters will have been infuriated after their side blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 away to Serbia in their second World Cup European Qualifier. Following such a result, no excuses will be given for the Portugal players if they fail to beat Luxembourg at Stade Josy Barthel. However, Luxembourg come into this game off the back of one of the most memorable results in their footballing history at the weekend as they beat Republic of Ireland 0-1 in Dublin. Whilst such a result will give them huge confidence heading into this one, Portugal represents significantly tougher opposition and with anything less than an away win by at least two clear goals would be a surprise.
