Tonight’s Group A2 clash serves us an Iberian derby when Portugal hosts Spain in Braga.
Portugal can wrap up the group stage as group leaders with a draw while the La Roja will need the maximum 3 points for them to qualify for the next phase of the tournament.
The Portuguese signed coached by Fernando Santos come into the game with a rich vein of form after defeating Czech Republic 4 nil in their last match. The Spanish national team has contrasting fortunes when they fell to a 2-1 loss at home to Switzerland.
With only two points separating second place Spain and leaders Portugal, the La Roja will be hoping to leapfrog their opponents by getting a victory in Braga tonight. But Portugal have shown that they parade on the best teams on the continent and huge squad depth.
Although, Spain should not be considered as a pushover in this tie because derbies have shown that form do decide the final result.
The winner of tonight’s clash will qualify for the next round of the Nations League.
