Portugal will lock horns against Israel at Estadio Jose Alvalade on Wednesday before heading into UEFA Euro 2020 later this week.
The hosts and reigning Euro champions, Portugal, are one the last teams to bring an end to their preparations for the big event coming ahead.
Portugal are firm favourites owing to their supreme international form. Led by one of the best goal-scorers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo’s men have the ability to defeat the biggest teams in Europe, something they have already shown in the last decade.
Portugal vs Israel showdown is likely to get the best out of the hosts who have got a great bunch of young footballers in their side, courtesy of club football. The hosts are in dire need to bring out their A-game, having wo only three of their last six games and only narrowly so.
On the flip side, Israel have shown below-par performances in recent times. They have bagged only four victories in eleven games. In their 3-1 win against Montenegro, the Blues and Whites did show that they have the ability to thump the opponents on the given day
The last match-up between Portugal and Israel ended in a 1-1 stalemate in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification game.
