There will be fireworks when Portugal and France face each other in the Nations League derby on Saturday evening. Portugal aims to retain the top position in Group 3. They are likely to adopt a cautious approach against World Cup winners France. After resting several players in a friendly against Andorra they will field in all players now.
Fernando Santos is likely to field the best possible side against Les Tricolores. Cristiano Ronaldo, who has recovered from coronavirus, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Didier Deschamps’ troops, on the other hand, will be without key attacker Kylian Mbappe in Saturday’s showdown as the PSG ace has been struggling with injury. The former Monaco man will be sorely missed in the Group 3 derby, and that is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home team. When the two teams met in Paris earlier in the process they played out a goalless draw.
