Spain hosts Portugal at the Estadio Benito Villamarin in one of the best Nations League games this week. Stay with us because we will take a look at it in our best football tips for today.
Spain reached the Nations League final in the previous edition of the competition, but they lost it against France. Now the team’s goal is to do even better and win the trophy. But in order to do it they must win their group first. And it won’t be easy in the presence of a team like Portugal.
La Roja’s manager Luis Enrique didn’t bother to call some young players again. Barcelona’s Pedri is injured and can’t play, but Enrique called his teammates Gavi and Ansu Fati. But experience is there as well – Sergio Busquets, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jordi Alba and Thiago are present in the squad, too.
It’d be curious to see how Ansu Fati will perform in the upcoming games. Barca’s young star had some serious injuries lately, but now he will has the opportunity to prove his worth again.
Portugal starts this Nations League campaign hoping to win the competition for a second time. The head coach Fernando Santos once again called his best guns for the upcoming fixtures. Veterans like Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Moutinho and Rui Patricio are back in the squad, but at the same time Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves and Joao Cancelo bring a lot of quality as well. Selecao has a great mixture between experience and youth and that’s one of Portugal’s biggest assets at the moment.
AC Milan’s Rafael Leao is a player to watch in Portugal’s squad. He just won the Serie A with the Rossoneri and made a great season. He’s just 22-years old and he’s probably a future star in the national team.
That’s the best football tips for today for the Nations League game between Spain and Portugal. It’s going to be an amazing fixture!
