Spain and Portugal get their respective Nations League campaigns underway with an Iberian derby in Seville in Group A2. This is a game that neither side will want to lose, which has shown in recent meetings between the two sides, with each of the last four matches ending as a draw.

Luis Enrique and his Spain side finished as runners-up during the 2021 tournament after a narrow 2-1 defeat to France in the final. This year, they will be hoping to go one step further and take home the trophy, a feat that rivals Portugal accomplished in the inaugural tournament in 2019.

This will be Portugal’s first match after beating North Macedonia 2-0 and confirming their place in this year’s World Cup and they will be wanting to build momentum going into the finals in Qatar.
