What is the team news?

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to miss this game for Portugal after two non-playing members of Juventus’ staff tested positive for coronavirus.

As a result, the whole team have gone into “fiduciary isolation”, meaning they can carry out training and match activities but not make contact with anyone outside their group.

Ronaldo is expected to rejoin the Portugal squad for their two upcoming Nations League fixtures.

Boss Fernando Santos has recalled William Carvalho, Ruben Semedo, Rafa Silva and Daniel Podence to his squad while Braga’s Nuno Sequeira replaced Napoli’s Mario Rui due to a coronavirus outbreak at the Italian club.

Adama Traore and Dani Ceballos have both been called up for Spain while Ansu Fati will look to build on his goal against Ukraine in the last international break.
