Switzerland have had a Nations League campaign to forget so far, losing all three of their games so far and scoring just one goal. Qualification will be out of their reach if they lost this game and another loss could see them needing a huge final two games to avoid relegation to League B.
Portugal opened their account with a draw against rivals Spain and followed that creditable point up with wins over Switzerland and Czech Republic. Victory in this game would give them a major boost of reaching the knockout stages.
