Before the pair take on a Nations League double-header later this week, European heavyweights Portugal and Spain clash in an international friendly. It's the first meeting between them since their pulsating 3-3 World Cup draw two summers ago, with plenty of quality on display.

Portugal are on a four-match winning streak and have scored 14 goals in that time. Spain are a team in transition under Luis Enrique – but unbeaten since Croatia were 3-2 winners against them in November 2018.

Will either footballing nation warm up for their upcoming competitive Nations League group stage fixtures with a morale-boosting friendly victory against top opposition here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Portugal vs Spain Betting Tips

Although Juventus' Serie A clash against Napoli in Turin was cancelled on Sunday, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't have any records hanging over him this week. The 35-year-old shook off a toe injury to play in their second Nations League group game last month, netting a brace.

In 165 national team appearances, Ronaldo's double means he's now surpassed 100 goals and would love to add more against a familiar foe. His brilliant hat-trick saved their blushes in a 3-3 group stage draw at the World Cup two years ago, and he'll remember it fondly.

Only a select few Spaniards remain from that fixture – including Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, who was exposed in Russia. He had a weekend to forget, conceding a whopping six strikes against Tottenham on Sunday.

Low on morale, watch whether Enrique sticks with him or gives Athletic Bilbao's Unai Simón his first senior cap. Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea) was also selected, but hasn't featured since successive errors against Brighton and Liverpool coincided with Edouard Mendy's £22.5m arrival in west London.

Since scoring on his first senior international start, Ansu Fati has shone at club level with Barcelona. Still 17 until October 31, the hot prospect has three goals in their last three and could feature from the start here.

Portugal vs Spain Correct Score Predictions

Portugal possess the home advantage, though it's difficult to predict as the pair have other matches to consider too. However, I'm still expecting some goals!
