Another one for Pool C, Saturday, the 16th of September will see Wales v Portugal. The match will kick off at 4.45 p.m. IST at the Stade de Nice in France.

Taking charge of the match will be Karl Dickson, who will have assistance from Luke Pearce and Andrea Piardi. Down in the TMO bunker will be Manus Jonker.

The two teams have only met each other once prior to this match, dating back to the qualifying stages of the 1995 Rugby World Cup when Wales racked up an eye-watering score of 102-11. Do Portugal have any hope of a close encounter this time or do Wales have an easy win awaiting them? Let's get stuck into my Wales v Portugal prediction.

🔍 Wales v Portugal Winner Prediction

I've mentioned that the Portuguese came away a clattered side after the last Wales v Portugal test, but with almost 30 years having passed since then, is that score a reliable indicator? What can we garner from both team's last six international matches? Wales have won three and lost three, whereas Portugal, respectively, have come out on top five times. You could get overly excited about this information, but most of the wins for Portugal were against tier-two and tier-three teams; Wales played against only one tier-two side - the rest being tier-one sides. That explains why Wales find themselves in 10th in the world rankings whilst Portugal have only managed 16th. With all of this in mind, and given that this will be a must-win opportunity for Warren Gatland's men if they wish to make it past the group stage of this Rugby World Cup, I can see Wales winning by 16 points.
