Portugal and Switzerland


Portugal reached the UEFA Nations League final after an extremely impressive journey. They overcame tough opponents in Group 3 League A to reach the top spot. What is special is that a Portuguese without Ronaldo can still be unbeaten against Italian and Polish opponents with 2 wins and 2 draws. Obviously the strength of Portugal is undeniable. They own a generation of players worth dreaming with talented young strikers, enthusiasm and solid fulcrum named Ronaldo.

With this achievement, Portugal has certain confidence in the match tonight. The important return of the captain will make Portugal's power increase twice. Moreover, as the reigning European champion, Portugal will become the home side of the Nations League semi-finals. This is a great advantage for them because coach Fernando Santos' team won the last time to welcome Switzerland at home with a score of 2-0 at the 2018 World Cup qualifier. 

Until this time, Portugal had 8 consecutive unbeaten matches. However, among them there were 5 draws, and their last 4 appearances ended with a draw. This not-so-high performance will make them difficult to face before Switzerland, the opponent is underestimated but always brings a lot of surprises. In the Nations League group stage, Switzerland was not highly rated in the league with Belgium. But the coach Vladimir Petković has excelled over this heavyweight opponent on home turf to win the top spot. Although the squad does not have many stars, in return, collective play has become a Swiss weapon that makes other teams abstain.

Portugal will have to deal with the discomfort of Switzerland tonight. With a team that often makes it difficult for big competitors like Switzerland, Portugal tonight will be extremely hard. Especially when Swiss performance is also very good with 4 unbeaten games, including 3 wins. However, with Switzerland often failing to achieve good results in trips to the stadiums of big teams like Belgium or England, the dealer has allowed Portugal to accept 0.5 / 1 left in this match.
