Portugal vs Spain: Our top betting tips

Spain suffered a surprise defeat in the week at the hands of Switzerland. Will they bounce back here with a win? Find out with our Portugal vs Spain match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Calling it level

We kick off our predictions for this match by sitting firmly on the fence as we back this game to end level. Why is that? Well, there is very little in the form book to suggest that one of these sides is about to run riot over the other. Portugal have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five whilst Spain have won two, drawn two and lost one. On top of that, each of the last four head to head meetings have ended all square and we've got a sneaky suspicion that's about to become five from five.

Both teams to score

Our next tip for this match up is that both teams will score. Portugal have bagged 11 goals across their last five matches with Spain bagging a total of seven across the same time period. With both sides showing form for hitting the net, goals are likely when they meet. Need more to convince you this is a worthwhile bet? The duo last met in June of this year where the game ended in a score draw. With all that weighed up, it would not be a huge shock to see the net bulge at both ends when they meet on Tuesday evening.

Let's decide who tops the group

With just one round of fixtures remaining in this Nations League group it is still all to play for where Spain and Portugal are concerned. Portugal currently top the standings but are only clear of Spain by two points; that means a Spain win would see them leapfrog their hosts and steal top spot.

Portugal looked very good in their last outing as they took apart the Czech Republic 4-0. With this game being competition defining it's highly likely they name an unchanged XI to take on Spain.

Portugal Predicted lineup – Costa, Dalot, Dias, Danilo, Rui, Carvalho, Neves, Fernandes, Ronaldo, Silva, Leao

Spain have been in good from generally with just two defeats in 10 games but notably one of those defeats came in their last outing with Spain paying the price for a lack of cutting edge. Will they make changes at the sharp end of the pitch here? We think they will.

Spain Predicted lineup – Simon, Alva, Torres, Azpilicueta, Garcia, Gavi, Busquets, Pedri, Torres, Koke, Morata
