Cristiano Ronaldo will have his sights set on the fast-approaching winter World Cup and potentially lifting that ever-elusive Jules Rimet Trophy. But for now, attention is firmly on the Nations League and pushing current Group A2 leaders Spain for a place in the finals.
After four matches, Luis Enrique’s men are leading the charge on nine points, with La Roja yet to lose a game. Portugal are clinging to their coattails in second, with just a point currently keeping the two nations at bay. So, the emphasis to get a win on Saturday in Prague is simply non-negotiable.
Czech Republic, though, will have their own aspirations of pushing Spain and potentially causing an upset. Jaroslav Silhavy’s men are currently in third and three points below Portugal, so they know a big win on home soil this weekend will close the gap. They will also be cautious of bottom-nation Switzerland, who are only a point behind them in the relegation zone.

Czech Republic vs Portugal match stats
Cristiano Ronaldo has been naturally prolific in this Nations League, as international football’s all-time top scorer looks to consolidate his status as the sport’s pre-eminent goal-getter. As things stand, only Memphis Depay (three) has scored more goals than Ronaldo (two) in the 2022/23 Nations League A. But, the veteran superstar is ever the perfectionist and will certainly be eyeing up more goals to add to his unprecedented 117 at international level.

When these nations met in the Nations League back in June, it was Fernando Santos’ men who got the better of the two. Joao Cancelo was an unlikely deadlock-breaker, before Goncalo Guedes confirmed the three points, with both strikes assisted by midfield magician Bernardo Silva.
