World Cup 2014 Qualifier Live Betting: Sweden v. PortugalPublished November 19, 2013 by OCR Editor
Sweden v. Portugal, 7:45pm local time.
Going down tonight at the Friends Arena in Solna is one of the most anticipated 2014 World Cup qualifiers, where Sweden will host Portugal. The two national teams met last week in Lisbon where the Portuguese, aided by star Cristiano Ronaldo, took Sweden 1-0. Ronaldo's goal came on in minute 82 after Portugal faced a much disciplined Swedish team, which was trying to bring the decision of the play-off back home.
Back home in Sweden tonight is where the decision will be made, but with the added pressure of Portugal's 1-0. Commenting on the game, Portugal boss Paulo Bento said: "We'll have to be tactically and mentally prepared because we'll face 90 minutes of suffering to reach our objectives". Sweden boss Erik Hamren said he expects drama "to the very end".
A major point of interest in this game is the face-off between Cristiano Ronaldo and Sweden's Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Zlatan gave a very dry performance in the last leg, and much of Sweden's hopes of qualifying are with him tonight.
