Portugal to win tense battle with Spain
Portugal and Spain go head-to-head once more in the final game of the UEFA Nations League group stage at the Estádio Municipal in Braga on Tuesday night. After blowing away Czechia last week, A Seleção only need a draw against their bitter Iberian rivals to seal passage into the knockout phase. Read our preview here:
An unlikely source of not one but two goals in the 4-0 thrashing that sent Fernando Santos' men to the top of the standings was Diogo Dalot. The Manchester United full-back has been a more prominent member for both his club and national sides this term, marking his sixth cap with a brace. Together with João Cancelo on the other flank, they are currently at the peak of their form, with the latter likely to come back in the side after serving his suspension, but not at the former's expense.
La Furia Roja suffered a huge setback at home to Switzerland, losing 2-1 and surrendering their grip at the summit. For all the talent at Luis Enrique's disposal, finding a reliable goalscorer has been an issue. Álvaro Morata is probably the closest to that ideal in the current squad, and the Atlético Madrid striker does have three goals to his name this season.
Portugal thrive in situations where the onus is on their opponents to break them down, so odds of 2.25 with Parimatch for them to win instead look favourable.
