Portugal face off against Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League semi-final at the Estadio Do Dragao in Porto.

Predictions

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the Portugal squad after sitting out the group stage games while his country went unbeaten in their UEFA Nations League group stage, a 1-0 home win over Italy kicked off the competition for current European Championship holders -they followed that up with a 3-2 victory away to Poland, before two draws in the remaining two matches put them through to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Switzerland won three of their UEFA Nations League games, a 6-0 home win against Iceland began their journey to the semi-finals, a 2-1 loss to Belgium was followed up by a 2-1 win over Iceland in Reykjavik before a miraculous 5-2 win from behind against the Belgians in Luzern.

Portugal came top of their UEFA Nations League group with eight points, three more than second placed Italy and six more than Poland. They currently sit in third place in their Euro 2020 qualifying group with two points out of two games, behind both Ukraine and Luxembourg.

Switzerland topped their UEFA Nations League group on goal difference as both they and Belgium finished on nine points. Iceland failed to pick up a single point, losing all four games. Belgium won 2-1 in Brussels, while the Swiss smashed in five goals against the Belgians after falling two goals behind to win 5-2. They currently sit in second place of their Euro 2020 qualifying group on four points, behind Ireland, but ahead of the likes of Denmark, Gibraltar, and Georgia. A 2-1 win for Portugal is well worth a shout.   

Betting Tips

Portugal to win 2-1                                                               

Portugal have only lost once in their last 15 matches, which was a 2-1 defeat to Uruguay in the 2018 World Cup.                                                  

Total goals over 2.5

The Swiss were top goal scorers in League A of the UEFA Nations League with 14 while conceding five while Portugal scored five and let in three and that could be why the bookies are offering odds for the over 2.5 goals scored market.
