Portugal probable lineup
Portugal were shy during their first UEFA Nations League game against Spain as that game ended 1-1 on the road. At least Portugal's defense was efficient during that game, but Portugal's most recent victory was another display of their attacking power scoring 4-0 against Czech Republic.
Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to be a starter in the lineup against Spain, but he has not scored for Portugal since the win over Switzerland on June 5.
This is the likely Portugal’s lineup for this game: Costa; Diogo Dalot, Rúben Dias, Danilo Pereira, João Cancelo; Rúben Neves, João Palhinha, Bruno Fernandes; Bernardo Silva, Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael Leão
Spain probable lineup
Luis Enrique's strategy seems a bit weak since more was expected from his squad during the Nations League, but at least they are fighting for a spot for the Nations League Finals. Spain's most recent game was a loss against Switzerland 1-1.
Spain's best game during the Nations League was against Czech Republic as they won that game 2-0 and it was their only game where the defense did not allow goals.
This is the likely Spain’s lineup for this game: Unai Simon; Dani Carvajal, Eric Garcia, Pau Torres, Jordi Alba; Koke Resureccion, Rodri Hernandez, Pedri Gonzalez; Pablo Sarabia, Alvaro Morata, Ferran Torres.
