Head to head record
Portugal vs Wales 3-0 (2000 Friendly International)
Portugal vs Wales Team News
William Carvalho misses the match through suspension, while Pepe missed training on Monday with a minor injury. However, the Real Madrid defender should recover in time to face Wales in the Euro 2016 semis. Raphael Guerreiro is a major doubt and he will be assessed on the match day. Cristiano Ronaldo failed to impress against Poland, but he should keep his place in the starting line-up.
Doubtful: Raphael Guerreiro (10/2)
Suspended: William Carvalho (24/0)
Ashley Williams has overcome his injury and he is likely to start. Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies, though, both miss the Portugal game through suspension. Jonathan Williams and James Collins should be recalled to the starting line-up. Gareth Bale failed to score against Belgium, but he will be the man to watch in Chris Coleman’s team.
Suspended: Aaron Ramsey (44/11), Ben Davies (25/0)
- Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 60 goals for the Portuguese national team
- Portugal and Wales have never met before at the Euro finals
- Wales had 7 shots on goal in the 3-1 win over Belgium
- Portugal defeated Wales (3-0) in their only previous meeting
- Dragons are after their third clean sheet at Euro 2016 finals
Portugal vs Wales Prediction
A place in the Euro 2016 final will be at stake when Portugal and Wales face each other at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. A Selecao were not at the top of their game in the victory over Poland and I am positive that Fernando Santos’ men are going to produce a much better performance in Wednesday’s clash against Wales. The Dragons head into the game with a severely-weakened squad and, taking everything into account, Portugal are closer to making it to the Euro 2016 final. The time has come for Cristiano Ronaldo to prove his worth at the showpiece tournament in France.
Betting Tip: Portugal to qualify
Odds: 1.55 (6/11) @888Sport
