Por vs Esp
Spain and Portugal play each other today in the Nations League final group game

Spain and Portugal take on each other in UEFA Nations League 2022/23 final League A Group 2 game as the tournament moves ahead. Both teams will be looking for a win here.

Kick-off : 7:45 PM (Local)

Venue : Estadio Municipal de Braga, Braga

Spain are not having an ideal campaign this season in the Nations League as they are not top of the points table but surely can if they beat Portugal. They are 2nd in Group with 8 points from 5 games.

La Roja know they weren’t brilliant in the last game against Switzerland as they lost. They must defend well in Portugal.

Manager Luis Enrique will likely deploy a 4-3-3 system against the Portuguese.

On the other hand, Portugal are having a good time in the Nations League 2022/23 as they are top of the group and they must edge Spain at home to stay top.

The Selecao won their last game against the Czech Republic by a comprehensive margin and they will feel confident against the Spaniards.

Manager Fernando Santos might use a 4-1-4-1 system to resist the Spanish and score to get three points.

Team news and possible lineups

Dani Carvajal is available for Spain and will likely play.

As for the Portuguese, Joao Cancelo is available and might play.

Spain XI : Simon, D. Carvajal, Garcia, Torres, J. Alba, Koke, Rodri, Pedri, P. Sarabia, A.

Morata, Torres.

Portugal XI : Costa, Dalot, Dias, Pereira, Cancelo, Neves, Palhinha, Fernandes, B. Silva, Ronaldo, Leao.

Prediction

It should be a fascinating contest between the two sides as both will look to score and one can expect quality football. In the end I expect the better team to win who commits lesser mistakes on the day.
