POR vs SUI DREAM11 TEAM PREDICTION TIPS
In the UEFA Nations League 2019, Portugal will host Switzerland for the first semifinal match on Thursday 6th June. Portugal will be led into battle by Cristiano Ronaldo in their Nations League finals clash with Switzerland.
For the first time since 2015, the Portuguese superstar will not feature in the Champions League final, meaning he will be fully rested for the inaugural international tournament knockout stage. He had missed many majority campaigns with permission so far as he had to life with Juventus. But he will be playing this match which is happening in this homeland. Portugal secured their place at the inaugural finals with a home win over Italy, a 3-2 win away against Poland and then draws in the reverse fixture to finish top of group 3. Switzerland had a much more dramatic route to the second stage of the tournament, needing to beat Belgium by two clear goals in their final match and coming from two goals down to win 5-2.
Switzerland star player Xherdan Shaqiri is expected to feature in the game just after a day in Liverpool Champions League.
Kickoff: 12:15 am IST Wednesday 5th June 2019
Where: Estádio do Dragão
