Portugal battled Italy and Poland on their way to the semis while Switzerland had to overcome the challenge of 2018 World Cup semi-finalist Belgium. The Swiss have won two out of their last three games while 2016 European champions Portugal have drawn four straight matches. Porto’s Estadio Do Dragao will host this all-important tie.

Cristiano Ronaldo who did not feature in the UEFA Nations league last year is back again to lead the line-up. The Portuguese legend coming back adds a lot of teeth to the home team’s attack that has lacked penetration off late. Bernardo Silva who won four trophies with Manchester City last season will be available on the wing and is one player that has evolved on the biggest stage. In terms of current form, there are hardly any who could match his exploits. Wolves duo Joao Moutinho and Diogo Jota are most likely to feature for the hosts in what looks like a formidable line-up.
Switzerland will have Arsenal ace Granit Xhaka marshalling the midfield while Xherdan Shaqiri who hardly featured for Liverpool last season will be desperate to get on the field. The duo has a good record when it comes to performing in a Swiss shirt and were key to their team making it to the semis. Fabian Schar is set to return to the defence pushing Ricardo Rodriguez to the full back position.
