In what has been a fiercely-competitive Group A2 of the 2022/23 Nations League will reach it’s crescendo on Tuesday night. The state of play heading into this concluding fixture sees Portugal top the table, but only two points ahead of Spain, meaning it’s still all to play for.

Luis Enrique’s side were leading the charge before their 2-1 defeat to Switzerland, but that wobble in Zaragoza has allowed Portugal to capitalise on their 4-0 thrashing of Czech Republic and leapfrog them into first. A result now for the inaugural winners would guarantee another place in the Finals.

Both of these nations will certainly be keeping a close eye on the fast-approaching World Cup, but focus on football’s quadrennial gathering will move to the back burner as they coalesce in Braga for a straight shootout at making the final four.

Portugal vs Spain match stats

Having seen Switzerland put two past Spain earlier this week, Cristiano Ronaldo will be licking his lips at the possibility of improving his unprecedented international tally. Football’s record goalscorer at international level famously netted a hat-trick against Spain in the 2018 World Cup and is currently the second-most prolific player in League A of the 2022/23 Nations League (two goals).

Bernardo Silva will be (arguably) Ronaldo’s most influential team-mate for this contest. The Manchester City midfielder is Portugal’s leading playmaker this Nations League with three assists, underlining his pinpoint accuracy and eerily precise passing range. As things currently stand, only the Netherlands (13) have scored more than Portugal in League A (11).

Portugal vs Spain head-to-head

02 Jun 2022 – Spain 1-1 Portugal – Nations League

04 Jun 2021 – Spain 0-0 Portugal – International friendly

27 Jun 2012 – Portugal 0-0 (2-4 on pens) Spain – Euro 2012

This fixture finished 1-1 back in June. Alvaro Morata broke the deadlock 25 minutes in after getting on the end of a Pablo Sarabia ball. But, Portugal would not lie down from there. Ricardo Horta restored parity late on. An unlikely scorer, the five-capped Portugal international opened his account for his nation with that strike.
