And if it is true that so far Ruben Amorim has already provided opportunities for almost all the players in the main squad – two goalkeepers, Joao Virginia and Andre Paulo, as well as young midfielder Dario Essugo are still missing – there are some players who keep in list of untouchable status.

We are talking about goalkeeper Adana, defender and captain Coates, midfielders João Palhinha and Mateus Nunez and striker Paulinho. Pilares de Amorim, a kind of lion ridge, which may well rest in the Portuguese Cup game against Belenenses.

If these games against teams that develop into secondary divisions of the football building of Portuguese football are almost always used by coaches to manage the team and empower less-used players, this lion quintet should recharge its batteries in this match, thinking about the fight against Besiktas for the League. champions who can give Sporting their first and coveted victory in the group stage.

BALL - "Cristiano has a great influence on his opponents" (Portugal)

Leonel Pontes is convinced that the team led by coach Murat Yakin will bet on eleven with slight changes in relation to the teams participating in the group stage. The Portuguese coach also emphasizes the importance of Cristiano Ronaldo in the behavior of the opposing teams and recalls that the Swiss national team is based on the major European leagues.

– How will Switzerland play against Portugal?

– He will play in a 4x2x3x1 formation, where the basic eleventh is left with very little change. Defensive sector with Gregor Sobel of Borussia Dortmund in the back line and right-back Widmer of Mainz, Rodriguez of Torino as left-back and centre-back Akanji of Manchester City and Elvedi of Borussia. He usually has two defensive midfielders left: Freuler from Nothing Forest and Xhaka from Arsenal. Up front and as an attacking midfielder Eintracht Frankfurt’s Sow, Chicago Fire’s Shaqiri and Augsburg’s Vargas on the flanks and as Monaco’s Embolo’s offensive defensive midfielder.

– Eleven people, many of whom play in the best European leagues …

– Yes. Base 11 players mainly play in the two most competitive leagues in the world, English and German. In this order of ideas, this is a selection with players of high technical and tactical quality, strong physically and with a strong mentality. They have the advantage that they have already beaten us several times and believe that the games against Portugal are balanced despite the 4-0 defeat in the Nations League. He has an alternative system: 3x5x2 with 3 central defenders, 3 midfielders and 2 forwards, which can create various problems and be a surprise factor in the game.

– What is the strength of Switzerland?

– The base team has been playing together for a long time and the quality/experience of its players. The central corridor, from striker to goalkeeper, is very high quality and consistent. A very compact team in defense, mostly in the mid-low block. Very dangerous in fast attacks and counterattacks. A lot of physical strength in duels.

What about weaknesses?

– They attack with a small number of players and with an opponent behind the ball, they lack arguments to get chances. If they remain without the ball for a long time, they tend to increase the distance between the lines and allow them to play inside.

– How do you assess the Portuguese team in terms of strengths?

– A mentality in games with a higher degree of competitiveness and the elimination of the technical, tactical qualities and irreverence of its players associated with the work of Joao Felix, Bernardo and Bruno Fernandes. We have the best player in the world, Cristiano, who has a huge impact on his opponents.

What about weaknesses?

– The difficulty of creating scoring chances in teams closed in the middle block. Difficulty in attacking teams playing in defense with a line of 5 players. The lack of width in the game, taking the game too far into the center aisle. Lack of intensity and speed in the circulation of the ball, which makes the game more predictable. Lack of depth on the sides and slight imbalance in situations and 1v1. Few crosses and few chances to create a gate for the striker.
