The two Iberian neighbours duel in this match for the group victory and the associated qualification for the final round of the UEFA Nations League. Portugal is currently in the lead with 10 points. With a win, the Spaniards could still overtake Portugal.

Team news Portugal

For years, the Portuguese were proud of their so-called golden generation around Luis Figo and Rui Costa, but they never won a major title. But what the Portuguese now have to offer in terms of player material surpasses all previous Portuguese squads. you can almost call it platinum-generation.

The list of stars could go on without mentioning the name of Cristiano Ronaldo. Whether Diogo Jota from Liverpool FC, Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), Joao Cancelo (Manchester City), Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid) or Ruben Dias (Manchester City) – it is a Who’s Who of European football.
Reaching the UEFA Nations League final is of great importance for Fernando Santos‘ team, but no one in his squad will be contorting themselves for an international match so close to the World Cup and the important upcoming phase in club football with several matches to play.

Team news Spain

The 2010 World Champions are currently in an identity crisis. As much as club football is dominated by teams like Real Madrid, the national team has lacked big stars for years. This is also reflected in the fact that Champions League winners Real Madrid currently have only two current national players in Marco Asensio and Dani Carvajal. And so FC Barcelona currently provides the scaffolding for the team. In the defeat against Switzerland a few days ago, six Barca players were in the starting line-up (Garcia, Alba, Gavi, Busquets, Pedri, Torres). Although Spain has won four of their seven games this year and lost only one, it is hard to imagine Spain playing a decisive role in the upcoming World Cup in their current form.


  • The H2H statistics between Spain and Portugal are fascinating. The last five meetings between the Iberian neighbours have each ended in a draw, three of them goalless, four of them by less than 3 goals.
  • The last match was marked by many yellow cards: No less than 8 players were cautioned.

Our betting prediction for Portugal vs Spain

Portugal is in the best possible position here. Even a draw is enough to decide Group 2 of the UEFA Nations League in their favour. And the Portuguese are in good form and have an excellent squad with plenty of competition. A slip-up against Spain is hard to expect. Another draw between the neighbouring countries is very likely, especially as the players of the big teams will not risk any unnecessary injuries and will surely take it easy.
We bet on this with odds around 3.25, which can be found at almost all providers, such as Betway.

By Max Stargard

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
