Predicted Spain XI vs Portugal

Spain will face Portugal in Braga this evening in the final round of the Nations League group stage, with kick-off scheduled at 8.45pm local time.

Spain has to win this evening against their Iberian rivals if they want to progress to the Final Four of the competition.

Earlier this morning it was communicated that César Azpilicueta and Eric García have been left out of the squad and were replaced by Dani Carvajal and Diego Llorente.

As it is a must-win game for Spain, Luis Enrique could potentially bring in the more attacking-minded Rodri into the midfield to replace Sergio Busquets.

Borja Iglesias and Nico Williams will most likely come off the bench if La Roja desperately need a goal.

Based on the latest news, at GSFN we predict that Luis Enrique will field the following starting XI against Portugal: Unai Simón – Dani Carvajal, Pau Torres, Diego Llorente, José Luis Gayà – Rodri, Gavi, Pedri – Marcos Llorente, Álvaro Morata, Pablo Sarabia.
