Portugals line-up is a fluid one, with Bernardo Silva able to push forward to turn it in a 4-3-3, or play deeper in a 4-4-2. Portugal could make changes from their semi-final win against Switzerland, after Nelson Semedo and Pepe were preferred to Joao Cancelo and Jose Fonte in defence. Fonte replaced Pepe and may start at centre-back this time out.

The Dutch were thankful to some poor English defending but otherwise deserved their win - but if they do not step it up another level, Ronaldo and the hosts will claim victory in this final. Expert Verdict: Cristiano Ronaldo was at his best as Portugal beat Switzerland, while the Netherlands had to come from behind to see off England in extra time.

Ukraine vs Serbia Predictions and Match Preview

Expert Verdict: The Dutch missed the World Cup for the first time in a while, and that means we won't be seeing the Oranje and its fans in full. The Slovakians won't be there either, though, and that will hurt them just as badly. With that said, the Netherlands are never really all that far from having a great team, so a slight edge goes to them. These are two very good teams that just lost out due to being in the toughest confederation to qualify from.

With the home advantage and the far superior squad, it should be a case of how many for Ukraine on Monday night but theyll be keen to stay focused and ensure they pick up all three points at 1/9 withUnibet. That victory means thatAndriy Shevchenkos men have now started their qualifying section with seven points from their opening three matches and that 5-0 hammering of Orlovi on Friday evening will have boosted their confidence yet further.

The Slovaks were more than unfortunate not to book their place in the play-offs, but life goes on, and they are now fully focused on the qualifiers for EURO 2020. Jan Kozak is still in charge of the team and his men are definitely capable of making life difficult for Ukraine in Fridays football match at Arena Lviv. Despite finishing their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign in second place in Group F Slovakia eventually failed to make it to the play-offs. The Ukrainians failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals as well, with the team suffering a heartbreaking 2-0 loss to Croatia in their last group game and, no doubt, the hosts are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Slovakia. A man to watch in the home team will be Borussia Dortmund ace Andriy Yarmolenko, but we predict that the two teams are going to play out a draw in Fridays friendly.

The Amsterdam club have always been great at producing young starts, and that is no different with a player like Donny van de Beek. Holland look to have hit a dead end of sorts, but there is really a lot of promise at the moment, particularly when you look at the phenomenal young talent coming out of Ajax. The 21 year old only has three caps, but he had a great season in a variety of positions with his club and he could start to assert himself of the national squad here and now.

Portugal vs Netherlands Prediction & Betting Tips

A 3-0 friendly win last year, after a dominant first-half display, was the Netherlands first win against Portugal since 1991 and only their second ever. Memphis Depay, Ryan Babel and Virgil van Dijk all scored. They have not met in a competitive fixture since a 2-1 Portugal win at Euro 2012, however. Portugal had won seven of the previous 13 matches against the Dutch, with five draws.

Slovakia currently have quite a few players plying their trade in some of Europes top sides, with Marek Hamsik, Martin Skrtel and Juraj Kucka clearly the leaders of the national team at the moment, but they do struggle in some areas and are not exactly world beaters just yet. Under Vladimir Weiss and Jan Kozak, Slovakia have become a tough not to crack, relying on rock-solid back line and swift counter-attacks, and they even gave Spain a tough time during the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Marek Hamsik is one of the silkiest and finest players in the modern world of football, and he might also be one of the unluckiest to play as well. He's always coming up close but just short of honors, and he's missed the World Cup this time around to further add insult to injury. But he's still a classy player that brings grace to the pitch. He has 103 caps to his name already, and the 30 year old Napoli man could change the outcome at any given moment with a pass, a shot, or a simple dribble.

Luxembourg are one of the minnows of the European international football scene. The country is very small in comparison to its more illustrious neighbours like Netherlands and Belgium and as a result, its hardly a surprise that theyve never able to qualify for either the World Cup or the European Championship finals, but they are making improvements and will hope to end that record in the coming years with the expansion of both tournaments.
