Fernando Santos will have a huge dilemma to deal with for the upcoming fixture in the right-back position. Joao Cancelo missed out on the 4-0 rout of the Czech Republic due to suspension. In his absence, Diogo Dalot performed brilliantly by scoring a brace in the last game. There is a possibility that Dalot might retain his place, while Cancelo could be switched to the left side or benched for this clash. Cristiano Ronaldo got hurt badly in his face during the last match. It is unclear if he will be fit enough to start on Tuesday. On the other hand, Marco Asensio might be dropped by Spain for a proper centre-forward like Alvaro Morata. Dani Carvajal could come in the right-back slot, while Rodri could return to the midfield.
Portugal possible line-up: Costa, Dalot, Dias, Pereira, Cancelo, Neves, Carvalho, B. Silva, Fernandes, Jota, Ronaldo
Spain possible line-up: Simon, Carvajal, Garcia, Torres, Alba, Rodri, Gavi, Pedri, Sarabia, Morata, Torres
