Pocket A Portugal Profit

Portugal are strong favourites at 4/11 with Totesport to beat Norway and Montenegro should also pick up a Euro 2012 qualifying victory.

Norway currently head Group H in qualifying for Euro 2012, having beaten second-placed Portugal 1-0 in Oslo back in September but as the pair renew hostilities in Lisbon, the latter can gain revenge.

Paulo Bento’s men started the campaign pretty badly under Carlos Queiroz but since the former Sporting boss took over they have improved considerably, comfortably winning both qualifiers, beating world champions Spain 4-0 in a friendly and suffering only one defeat, as Lionel Messi’s last-gasp penalty helped Argentina edge them out 2-1.

They have to be fancied on home soil against the Norwegians then although with a top quote of 4/11 (Totesport), bookies are hardly giving anything away. As a result, shrewd punters might want to combine a Portugal triumph with a tally of more than 2.5 goals at 11/10 with bet365.

Since Bento was appointed, the hosts have looked dangerous in attack, scoring three times in both qualifiers, firing four past Spain and bagging another couple against Finland in a friendly. At the other end, they’ve only managed two clean sheets in the half a dozen outings since the managerial switch so there’s scope for it to be a relatively high-scoring affair.

The other game in England’s group sees Montenegro tackle Bulgaria and it’s the former that can collect maximum points to keep pace with Fabio Capello’s men at the top. Zlatko Kranjcar’s men have, like England, won three of their opening four – drawing the other, at Wembley and they have yet to concede a goal in Group G.

Furthermore, they can boast a 1-0 victory in the away match against the Bulgarians and so back in Podgorica, they’re solid value at even money courtesy of William Hill in a clash that looks sure to generate fewer than three goals (4/7, Paddy Power).

Recommended Bets:
Portugal to beat Norway and over 2.5 goals in the game – 11/10 (bet365)
Montenegro to beat Bulgaria – evens (William Hill)
