The UEFA Nations League is back with one of the most interesting matches football fans could ask for. Portugal, title holders of the competition, will face current world champion France on the fifth day in a meeting which will be crucial for the first place of group A3.Both teams reached 10 points, with Fernando Santos’ men at the top of the standings because of their greater goal difference. This week, Portugal destroys Andorra (7-0) in a warm-up clash, while France suffered a shock defeat against Finland (2-0).

Cristiano Ronaldo, the key factor

Portugal will look to beat France to take a giant step towards title defense after having drawn 0-0 in Paris last October. To do this, Santos will call on Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be part of the star line-up. The five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or scored 102 goals for his national team and will be ready to extend his scoring records on Saturday.

Rui Patricio will return in goal while the defense line will likely be formed by Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerrero.

The midfielder should be for Bruno Fernandes, William Carvalho et Danilo Pereira, all a rising star João Félix, Bernardo Silva and Cristiano Ronaldo will threaten the line of defense of France.

Time for Griezmann to shine again?

As for France, guardian Hugo Lloris should be back alongside defenders Raphael Varane and Lucas Hernández. N’Golo Kanté is expected to start in midfield, while Antoine Griezmann could figure from the start. The French striker will be ready to impress in a great match against Portugal after a poor start to the season with FC Barcelona.

Didier Deschamps could also have Kingsley Coman available for match. The Bayern Munich striker had an ankle problem during training, but it doesn’t appear to be a serious problem. Kylian Mbappé is skeptical.
