The final games in the group stage of the Nations League take place over the coming days, and one of the standout fixtures will see Portugal and Spain clash on Tuesday. Both sides can still qualify for the finals of the Nations League, with Portugal holding a slim advantage over Spain.
Before Betting On Portugal vs Spain
It will be a huge fixture to close the curtain on Group A2 in the Nations League, as Spain will need to pick up a victory in the final fixture if they are to make the Nations League finals for the second straight time. However, Portugal will be looking for a victory to make it through to the finals for the second time, as they previously won the inaugural event.
Portugal holds all the cards ahead of the final matchday, as they sit two points clear at the top of the standings. They have won three of the five fixtures that they have played in the competition, and have scored the most goals and conceded the fewest. Portugal should be confident coming into this fixture, as they hammered the Czech Republic over the weekend, with Diogo Dalot scoring twice in the win.
Going into the penultimate round of fixtures, Spain held the advantage. However, they let that advantage slip after being beaten at home by Switzerland on Saturday. Jordi Alba scored the only goal for the Spanish in that defeat, which leaves them needing a win in the final fixture to qualify for the finals.
Draws have been very common in the recent meetings between the nations, as the previous five have all ended in ties after 90 minutes. The most recent of those was a 1-1 draw earlier this year.
