Spain travel to Lisbon to take on Portugal in an international friendly on Wednesday. Little separates these Iberian neighbours with a close contest expected at Estádio José Alvalade.

Portugal Form


Portugal qualified for the European Championship after finishing second in Group B. Fernando Santos’ side lost 2-1 in Ukraine but rebounded with a 6-0 win against Lithuania and 2-0 win in Luxembourg.

The Seleção started their UEFA Nations League campaign with a 4-1 win against Croatia. They were far too strong in Porto even without Ronaldo, João Cancelo, Diogo Jota, João Félix and André Silva all on the score sheet.

It could have been a bigger win as Portugal hit the woodwork three times and had 27-5 shots including 11-2 on target.

Portugal produced another dominant 2-0 win in Sweden. The Swedes were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of halftime, Ronaldo scoring his 100th and 101st goals for his country.
