Portugal Vs France: Confirmed Lineup For Both Teams Out

Portugal Vs France: Confirmed Lineup For Both Teams Out

Portugal will play hosts to France at Estadio do SL Benfica in Lisbon tonight in Matchday 5 of the UEFA Nations League.

The defending champions have been in fine form in the latest edition, winning three of their four games so far to sit atop Group A3, ahead of their next opponents France by goal difference.

The Seleccao come into the game on the back of a thumping 7-0 win over Andorra this week but the same cannot be said about France, who suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of Finland.

Last time out in the Nations League, Les Bleus failed to make it out of the round robin stage and could suffer the same fate this time out as well, depending on tonight’s result.

The reverse fixture, played at Stade de France last month, ended in a drab goalless draw in a game that saw chances coming few and far between.

Portugal XI (4-3-3): R. Patrício, J. Cancelo, J. Fonte, R. Dias, R. Guerreiro, W. Carvalho, D.Pereira, B. Fernandes, B. Silva, C. Ronaldo, J. Félix

France XI (4-1-2-1-2): H. Lloris, B. Pavard, R. Varane, P. Kimpembe, L. Hernández, N. Kanté, P. Pogba, A. Rabiot, A. Griezmann, K. Coman, A. Martial
