Portugal has reached dizzying heights over the past few years, but things didn’t go well for them in the initial days of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers. However, Fernando Santos’ men have bounced back well, and they are not looking to spare anyone an inch any further

Portugal has amassed eight points till now, and are sitting at the second position of Group B. On Friday (October 11), they will take on Luxembourg at Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon.

Luxembourg, on the other hand, has amassed four points from five games, and are sitting on the fourth position. For Luc Holtz’s men, it will be quite an achievement if they can earn a point in Lisbon.
