Portugal vs Switzerland

Portugal vs Switzerland – Portugal hosts Switzerland at Estadio da Luz, Lisbon on 10th October, Tuesday in a crucial Group B fixture of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers for the UEFA nations.

The Group B is placed at an interesting juncture with Switzerland leading the group with twenty-seven points while Portugal are placed second with twenty-four points.

A win for either side means they will automatically qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, while a draw will see Switzerland go through, and the European Champions Portugal facing a play-off battle to book their tickets.

Switzerland have had an incredible run in the qualifiers winning all of their nine games, including a 2-0 win over Portugal in the reverse fixture in the September of last year. Since that loss to the Swiss team, Portugal have all but turned a corner, winning the following eight qualifiers.
