The weak performance of the day is that of Portugal, who already suffered a draw in the opening playoffs of Group B against Ukraine, and again shared points in Lisbon against Serbia (1 -1).
It was also the Serbs who opened the penalty kick scored by Dusan Tadic early in the game, before the equalizer, just before Danilo Pereira came out of the field a beautiful goal from distance. But the worst news for the Portuguese is certainly the injury exit of his superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
"CR7", who had just returned to the squad on Friday after a nine-month break, hurt himself in an acceleration and was released within two weeks of the first round of his club's Champions League quarter- Juventus Turin against Ajax Amsterdam.
It is therefore Ukraine who seizes the opportunity to caracoler at the top of this group with four points thanks to their win in Luxembourg (2-1) torn at the end of the game. The Portuguese, European champions in the title, are tentatively in third.
