The Portuguese are in a very difficult group, considering that the national teams of Spain, the Czech Republic and Switzerland are in the group with them, and only the first-placed team will have the opportunity to compete in the playoffs of the League of Nations. For that reason, every match at home is very important, and the Portuguese team is facing a match in which victory is imposed as an imperative. Three days ago, they played a draw 1: 1 against Spain, and we can say that they left a great impression, which will certainly give them an extra dose of confidence before the competition continues. In that match, Ronaldo entered the game only in the sixty-second minute, so that feat is even greater. The Portuguese national team has great offensive potential, and if Cristiano Ronaldo is in the starting lineup on Sunday night, the home team will likely play extremely offensively. We must also mention the fact that Portugal has scored as many as fourteen goals in the last five matches at home.

The Swiss national football team managed to achieve one of the primary goals – placement in the World Cup in Qatar, and now it’s time to fight in the League of Nations. However, for them, this year’s edition of the League of Nations did not start in the best way, considering that in the first round on the visiting field, they were defeated by the Czech national team with a result of 2: 1. The Swiss were the more dominant team on the field in that game, but the persistent Czechs made the most of all their mistakes, and managed to come to a valuable victory. Switzerland managed to avoid relegation from League A last time with a lot of luck, but this season it will be much harder, especially in the case of defeat in the duel with Portugal. On Sunday, they will have to adapt to the rhythm of the match that the Portuguese will impose, because that is the only way they could get the first points of this season in the League of Nations. We believe that the Swiss will consciously take risks and will focus all their attention on the game in attack, which can be very dangerous, especially in a match with a team like Portugal.

Portugal vs. Switzerland Prediction
Although the Spanish national team is the main candidate for winning first place on the table and placement in the next phase of the competition, we believe that the Portuguese will do their best to be a very “awkward” opponent. To be equal candidates, the Portuguese will need a victory in the match with Switzerland, and we believe that they have sufficient quality to triumph over the opponent who is in a result crisis. A big advantage for the home team will be the fact that it has been announced that Ronaldo will start the game, and there is no need to talk about his qualities. The Portuguese has scored as many as fifteen goals in the last five matches at home, and we expect them to continue in the same rhythm.
