The Group B is set for a cracker of a match between the group leader Switzerland and the 2nd placed Portugal at Lisbon’s Estadio da Luz stadium.
The hosts are 3 points behind the Swiss and a win will take them to the top of the group with a better goal difference. The Swiss on the other side just need a single point to secure a direct place in the FIFA World Cup.
Lets jump straightaway to the team news.
Portugal Team News:
Portuguese star Christiano Ronaldo is one booking away from suspension which is why he didn’t play against Andorra but he will definitely play against the Swiss. Portugal are on a winning streak as they have won 8 consecutive games. Portugal will be missing their defensive duo Fabio Coentrao and Raphael Guerreiro due to injury. Cedric and Bruno Alves are expected to return in place of Nelson Semedo and Neto into the starting XI.
Probable XI: Patricio, Cedric, Pepe, Bruno Alves, Eliseu, Joao Mario, William Carvalho, Bernardo Silva, Quaresma, Ronaldo, Andre Silva.
Switzerland Team News:
Young Swiss striker Breel Embolo, who was introduced by manager Petkovic on Saturday as a substitute, impressed and so he might get to play against the Portuguese as well. Gelson Fernandes and Edmilson will miss the big match due to injury but Ricardo Rodriguez is expected to return to the starting XI.
Probable XI: Sommer, Lichtsteiner, Schar, Djourou, Rodriguez, Xhaka, Freuler, Shaqiri, Frei, Zuber, Seferovic.
