Spain vs Portugal: Football Whsipers' Predictions

Group 2 of the Nations League pits Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic and Switzerland against one another in what should be a very interesting set of fixtures for all nations concerned.  Spain face arguably their toughest home game of the group stage this Thursday when they entertain their neighbours Portugal for what should be a close and competitive 90-minutes.

Both Teams to Score

Despite the last two meetings between these two countries both ending in goalless draws, we're backing both teams to find the back of the net on Thursday. Both teams have scored in three of Spain's last six outings as well as in two of Portugal's last three fixtures. Spain have scored in all of their last six matches and Portugal have only failed to score in one of their last six outings, so you can see why we're not backing either nation to keep their clean sheet intact.

Over 2.5 Goals

There is a good chance that we will be treated to at least three goals on Thursday given all the attacking quality within both squads. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Spain's and four of Portugal's last six outings in all competitions with the hosts winning their last game against Iceland 5-0 and Portugal recently defeating Turkey 3-1 in the World Cup qualifiers.

Both teams would probably take a draw before kick-off

Morata put Spain in front at home to Iceland last time out and doubled his and his country's tally 3-minutes later from the penalty spot. Early in the second half, Pinio made it 3-0, and just after the hour mark, Sarabia got in on the action to make it 4-0. The very same player wrapped up the scoring 18-minutes from time with his second goal of the game making the final scoreline 5-0 to Spain.

Spain Predicted Lineup: Simon, Azpilicueta, Alba, Torres, Rodri, Koke, Thiago, Olmo, Sarabia, Torres & Morata

Portugal played host to North Macedonia in the World Cup qualifiers back in March where a goal from Bruno Fernandes, after good work from Ronaldo, saw Portugal take a deserved lead. Fernandes secured all 3pts for the hosts in the 65th-minute when he netted his second goal of the game to make it 2-0, Jota claiming the assists this time around.

Portugal Predicted Lineup: Patrício, Pepe, Cancelo, Mendes, Moutinho, Duarte, Otávio, Fernandes, Silva, Ronaldo & Jota
