Algeria vs Portugal: Rio 2016 Football Betting Tips

Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips

After two games for each team in the Olympic Games football tournament, we have some certainties and some questions which still have to be answered. The game between Portugal and Algeria, counting for Group D of the tournament, is a game between two certainties: Portugal have already qualified from the group, while Algeria has no chance to do so after two defeats. That being said, predicting the outcome of the game suddenly became much harder.

Portugal enjoyed 2 wins so far, 2-0 against Argentina and 2-1 against Honduras, playing good, offensive football in both of them. They now conformably sit top of the group with 6 points and cannot lose 1st place under any circumstances.

The Portuguese are now playing without pressure, which can be both good and bad. We’ll just have to see how well they can motivate themselves to play the good football they’ve accustomed us with so far in the tournament.

Meanwhile, the Algerians are only hoping for a win in order to leave the tournament with some dignity. The managed to lose both games at a one goal difference, 1-2 against Argentina and 2-3 against Honduras.

They haven’t played horribly so far, but their motivation will surely lack due to the fact that even a win won’t help them at all. The players probably want to end the tournament as soon as possible and return to their clubs to prepare for a new season.

From a betting perspective, these games are the absolute worst to predict: when both teams have essentially nothing to play for, we can see anything from a 4-0 Portugal win to a 1-0 Algerian win.

Although there are no more objectives to meet, we do think that Portugal will at least score, although we can’t envision how many goals we will have in the game.

If we had to pick a winner, we’d go with the Portuguese – simply because the Algerians will lack almost all their motivation.
