Portugal have taken 12 points from 12 on offer during an unblemished start to proceedings, while their hosts are just two points worse off and could usurp their more esteemed rivals with a maximum this week.

Results will certainly take precedence over performances for Slovakia head coach Francesco Calzona, as his side sit three points clear of Luxembourg in the second qualifying spot, and there will be no Nations League reprieve for them should they drop out of the top two.

A seven-game unbeaten run will stand Slovakia in good stead, and the Falcons have managed to keep clean sheets in each of their last four European qualifying matches, but not since 2015 have they put together a four-game winning streak across all competitions.

From their four opening matches against Bosnia-Herzegovina, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein and Iceland, Portugal have bagged 12 points and 14 goals while keeping four clean sheets.

From their last 19 matches at this level, the Selecao have suffered just one defeat – away to Ukraine in 2019 – and they have already come through four encounters with Slovakia without suffering defeat.

Slovakia vs. Portugal Head to head

In the four previous meetings between these two teams, Portugal have claimed three victories while they have drawn once.

Slovakia Team News

Paris Saint-Germain new boy Milan Skriniar and Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka should marshal the Slovakian backline as ever.

Juraj Kucka should earn his 100th cap for the Falcons here, likely alongside Napoli lynchpin Stanislav Lobotka, while Marek Hamsik has now called time on his glittering career.
