Reigning champions Portugal however, will be aiming for at least a point as they look to defend their 2016 crown.

However, ahead of the eagerly anticipated tie, Santos has been dealt an injury blow with Atletico Madrid midfielder Joao Felix not expected to feature.

That’s according to a recent report from A Bola, who claims Felix is ruled out due to suffering from myalgia – a muscle exertion issue.

Felix’s blow comes just after it was announced that full-back Nuno Mendes will also miss the game through injury.
