Portugal and Serbia face off in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier at the Estadio da Luz on Monday. The home side are the defending champions, as they secured their maiden international trophy in the tournament's previous edition; therefore, the expectations of everyone associated with the team have increased.
Portugal's start to the qualification campaign was hardly impressive, as they finished their opener against Ukraine in a 0-0 draw, and they come in with just five wins in their last 14 matches in all competitions.
On the other hand, Serbia will be playing their first match in the qualification process and will be eyeing a positive start to help them qualify for the group stage. The Orlovi have not qualified for the mega event since 2000, which means there will be a lot of pressure on this set of players to achieve something remarkable. However, Mladen Krstajic's men will be relatively confident going into the match, with four wins and no defeats in their last seven matches.
This will be fifth time these teams face off, with Portugal winning two and Serbia one.
