The 2023/23 Nations League is underway with an Iberian derby in Seville to savour tonight.

Luis Enrique’s Spain reached the final of last year’s competition before a controversial defeat to France, and are once again a serious force to be reckoned with having also made the Euro 2020 last four.

Unlike Spain, Portugal required a play-off to reach this year’s World Cup but safely navigated clashes with Turkey and North Macedonia in March.

These two teams have shared some memorable matches over the years, not least their 3-3 epic at Russia 2018 yet there two meetings since have both ended goalless.

Czech Republic and Switzerland will compete with the duo for the one qualification spot out of Group 2 of the Nations League A division.

This game will be broadcast live on Premier Sports and kick-off is at 7.45pm BST.

Around the grounds

A handful of lower division games are already underway as part of a busy schedule tonight.

Evening Standard score prediction

For two sides with so much attacking talent, the most recent meetings have not been particularly entertaining.

It’s finished goalless the last two times the teams have played each other, thought there was that classic 3-3 draw at the 2018 World Cup.

With plenty of tired legs at the end of a long club season, and the Nations League not a massive priority at this stage, it’s probably reasonable to expect a more low-key affair this time.

Draw, 1-1.

For Portugal, there is no Ruben Dias in the squad as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Diogo Jota should feature less than a week on from his involvement in Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, while Cristiano Ronaldo is almost certain to make his 187th international appearance.

Early team news

David de Gea will not be featuring after he missed out on the Spain squad completely – Brighton’s Robert Sanchez and Brentford’s David Raya were both preferred.

Aymeric Laporte withdrew from the squad last week due to a knee problem, while Pedri is also out with injury. Alvaro Morata is expected to lead the line for the Spanish side.
