Is Portugal vs Spain on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Nations League game

Top spot in Nations League Group A2 is at stake when Portugal host Spain in Braga.

After losing to Switzerland, the visitors need a win if they are to overtake their Iberian rivals and advance to the final.

Portugal ended the penultimate round more effectively with a 4-0 win against the Czech Republic and a draw would be enough for Fernando Santos’ side to progress.

The hosts have conceded just two goals in five group games so far and are hoping for another solid defensive performance.

Here’s everything you need to know before playing.

When and where is it?

The Portugal v Spain game kicks off at 7.45pm BST on Tuesday 27th September at the Estádio Municipal de Braga in Braga, Portugal.

How can I view it?

Viewers in the UK can watch the game live on BoxNation, with coverage starting at 19:35 BST. Premier Sports subscribers can stream the game through Premier Player.

Team News

Joao Cancelo missed Portugal’s win in the Czech Republic through suspension, giving Diogo Dalot a start and a starring role – the Manchester United full-back scored twice in the win, his first goals for his country. Cancelo’s return could then come at left-back, while Fernando Santos could also consider giving Cristiano Ronaldo a bench role after Dalot’s club-mate suffered a laceration to his face during the win.

Luis Enrique also didn’t add Dani Carvajal to his squad against Switzerland, but the right-back could return to Braga in place of Cesar Azpilicueta. Alvaro Morata could be used from the start to give Spain a more defined striker, while a reversal from Saturday to Tuesday could also see changes in midfield.

Expected Lineups

Portugal XI: costa; Dalot, Dias, Pereira, Cancelo; Neves, Palhinha, Fernandes; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Leao

Spain XI: Simon; Carvajal, Garcia, Torres, Alba; Koke, Rodri, Pedri; Torres, Morata, Arabia.
