Portugal predicted lineup vs Qatar : Match Preview
Qatar have a very decent form heading into this game with 4 wins and a draw out of their most recent 6 matches, although their last match was a heavy 4-0 defeat to Serbia, while Portugal on the other hand have played just the 2-1 win over Ireland in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers since their 1-0 defeat to Belgium in the European Championships held this year.
Portugal will be rotating with their squad and will either look to practice squad tactics and implement the style of play they wish to take into next years World Cup, or they may also experiment on something new considering that they have so many talented players and Fernando Santos will have to find a system to get the best out of them. Qatar on the other hand only have to play more friendlies after this one and so neither team have nothing much to lose, although fans as well as neutrals will be hoping for some level of intensity in the game.

There are several other key names missing out like Atlético Madrid’s João Félix who is also out due to injury. Others not included were Nélson Semedo, William Carvalho and Renato Sanches.

Portugal vs Qatar : Match Prediction and Live Stream
Considering that Portugal will be playing two friendlies against Qatar in between FIFA World Cup qualifiers and so it is unlikely that they will play their full strength team, it is also expected that they will rotate their main core team players as to practice team tactics and maintain fitness. They may still have enough quality to get a result against Qatar. We predict a 2-1 win for Portugal in this match.
