Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Rajko Mitić (Belgrade).
Serbia’s hopes of progressing into the next round are still alive, as they are currently just a point away from being level with second-placed Portugal on the ladder. Given the home advantage and the stature of the visitors, the Serbian outfit should be able to pile on even more pressure, with a win in this one.

Serbia vs Luxembourg Prediction
Serbia are on a winning groove at the moment. They have been recording back to back victories in their last two games. Their most recent matchup saw them register a narrow 2-1 win over rock bottom side Lithuania. Prior to that clash, the hosts got the better of Luxembourg with a 3-1 scorecard.
The hosts have also been at the losing end twice so far in the cluster. Both of those defeats though, to their defense, came against Ukraine and Portugal, who are currently leading the race for the top two spots.
Meanwhile, their counterparts for the week are on a dismal three-game losing streak. The visiting contingent have also come out on top just once this campaign, that too against the struggling Lithuanian side.
To make matters worse, Luxembourg have been admitting defeat without so much as a goal to their name in their previous two outings in a running. On the other hand, the Serbians have been at the losing end just once in their last five games on home soil.
With Luxembourg hardly showing any signs of promise, Ljubisa Tumbakovic’s men are the outright favorites to grab all three points in this one and are likely to do so without having to break much of a sweat. Taking into account that the hosts effortlessly slotted three past this foe in the reverse fixture, count on Serbia to win, even with a -1.5 Handicap on them.
Furthermore, the visitors have been caught napping at the back far too many times. And have conceded eleven goals so far, five of which were on the road. It is also worth noting that the hosts have been consistent in scoring two goals or more in each of their last five matchups in all competitions here.
As such, expect a high scoring affair this week with over 2.5 goals on the charts.
