The first Nations League winner Portugal hosts Switzerland in Lisboa in a game from League A’s Group 2 of the competition. Let’s see what we can tell you about this match in our football prediction site.
Portugal made a strategic draw in their first match in the group. Selecao paid a visit to Spain and they were close to losing, but managed to score an equalising goal in the 82th minute. Sporting Braga’s Ricardo Horta replaced Rafael Leao in the second half and put the ball in the net behind Unai Simon. It was his first goal for the national team.
Portugal’s head coach Fernando Santos make a curious decision as he started the captain Cristiano Ronaldo from the bench against Spain. The Manchester United super star came in during the second half, but he could be starting on Sunday. Ruben Neves and Goncalo Guedes could be starting as well after being benched in Sevilla.
Switzerland are desperate for points after losing their first game in the competition. Murat Yakin’s team paid a visit to the Czech Republic, but went home with a 1-2 defeat in Prague. We have to say the Crusaders didn’t play their best game despite Noah Okafor’s goal at the end of the first half.
It’d be curious to see if Murat Yakin makes some changes for the next game. From his bench he can pick experienced players like Haris Seferovic, Xherdan Shaqiri and Steven Zuber who didn’t start in Prague. The veteran striker Mario Gavranovic is also an option for the attack.
That’s what our football prediction site can tell you about the Nations League clash between Portugal and Switzerland on Sunday. Let’s see if the Crusaders are strong enough to trouble Fernando Santos’ side. We expect Cristiano Ronaldo to start for Portugal so it won’t be easy for the visitors.
