Wales vs Portugal Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023
The Red Dragons come to the Rugby World Cup 2023 after taking the fifth place in the 6 Nations with 6 points, 21 points behind the champion, Ireland. The team could only manage one victory against Italy but then was clearly outclassed by all opponents. In the case of the Lusitanians, they have just finished second in the Rugby Europe Championship 2023. The red team lost in the final against Georgia by 38-11.
How Wales and Portugal play and statistics
The style of play posed by the Red Dragons for this Wales vs Portugal has been noticeably impoverished in recent years. They are far from being a fearsome team but anyway, they always have players in their squad of hierarchy that enhance the level of their national team. The team is very attentive to rival mistakes and tries to get points at any cost. The Wolves have serious difficulties when it comes to defending and have many failures in tackling. One of their main weapons is the maul where they manage to impose themselves with very rough forwards that manage to subdue the rival. Then the team does not present great figures or outstanding virtues.

Prediction Wales vs Portugal Rugby World Cup 2023
This European match between Wales vs Portugal will define the group and will make the British win with clarity and sufficiency against the number 16 of the ranking. The hierarchy and individual level of the Welsh is really much superior to that of their rival and they will have to score 5 points in an accessible way. The Lusitanians will try to make history against a selected power and try to get into the classification although it seems a utopia with the size of their opponents.
