Top spot in Nations League Group A2 is on the line as Portugal host Spain in Braga.

A defeat to Switzerland leaves the visitors in need of a win if they are to overtake their Iberian rivals and progress to the finals.

Portugal completed their penultimate round business rather more effectively, beating the Czech Republic 4-0, and a draw would be enough for Fernando Santos’ side to advance.

The home side have conceded only twice in five group matches so far and will hope for another secure defensive performance.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the fixture.
