Match facts

  • Portugal, due to their superior goal difference over Switzerland, can leapfrog their rivals into first place on the final day with a win on Tuesday.
  • The travels, on the other hand, must merely avoid defeat in order to automatically qualify.
  • The last time these two sides met, the Euro 2016 champions lost 2-0.
  • Since then, however, Fernando Santos’ side have won all eight games and have scored 30 goals.
  • At home, Cristiano and Co. have won all four games, scored 18, and conceded only two goals.
  • Schweizer Nati, however, have the better head-to-head record, winning 10 and losing seven in 21 encounters with Portugal (D4).


Portugal are not in a dire situation, as they know the worst they can do is finish second. However, Cristiano and Co. will be wary of another grueling World Cup playoff when they take on Switzerland in the final day.

The Euro 2016 winners know victory over first-placed Switzerland would earn them an automatic qualification for the 2018 World Cup. Anything but a win means another playoff match.

The last time these two sides met, Portugal were beaten 2-0 in the opening game. Since then, Fernando Santos’ side have won all their games, but he visitors will be no walk in the park as they boast a 100 percent record.

Cristiano is expected to face Switzerland, having missed their first encounter which ended in a loss. The hosts will have a difficult task in defense as well, as they will have to stop Shaqiri and Seferovic.
