Portugal around superstar Cristiano Ronaldo challenges Spain in the top game of Nations League group A2 (in LAOLA1 LIVE Ticker).
The Portuguese are smiling after five games with ten points from first place, two points ahead of the Spaniards who remain in second place.
The team of team boss Luis Enrique needs a win to still manage to win the group and thus snatch the Final Four ticket from Portugal. A draw is enough for the Portuguese to take part in the final tournament.
Spain under pressure after defeat
But it will be anything but easy for “La Furia Roja”, because the opponent coached by Fernando Santos has a broad chest.
After all, Portugal was able to win the last game against the Czech Republic by 4:0. The Spaniards, who suffered a bitter 2-1 defeat against Switzerland, were completely different.
Ronaldo is criticized
In addition, the question remains open as to whether superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will play for the Portuguese from the start. Persistent media criticism puts pressure on coach Santos.
Ronaldo even seemed like a foreign body in the game against the Czech Republic and his poor fitness level, due to a lack of match practice at Manchester United, does not exactly increase his starting eleven chances.
So it remains exciting to see whether Spain can still overtake Portugal with a win or whether CR7 and his colleagues will ultimately be represented at the final tournament in 2023.
