Portugal v Switzerland Bet Builder
- Bruno Fernandes to score or assist
- Ruben Neves to commit 2 or more fouls
- Granit Xhaka to have 1 or more shots on target
Bruno Fernandes to score or assist
Fernandes has been a key component for Portugal in Qatar, scoring two goals and providing two assists in just two appearances.
With Cristiano Ronaldo struggling, take Fernandes to be the focal point of the Portuguese attack, and he looks like a solid bet to be involved in a goal at some stage here.
Ruben Neves to commit 2 or more fouls
Neves is utilised in a more defensive position for Portugal than his box-to-box role with Wolves, which leads the midfielder to end up in foul trouble on the international stage.
He’s set to be up against the counter-attacking skills of Breel Embolo, who has already drawn nine fouls in Qatar - take Neves to commit two or more in this clash.
Granit Xhaka to have 1 or more shots on target
Xhaka is the driving force in the heart of the Swiss midfield, and he’s registered five shots in three appearances so far in Qatar.
He looks like a big price to test the keeper in this clash as he’s on free-kick duty, and Portugal also tend to sit deep, happy to allow the opposition to have attempts from outside the box, an area that Xhaka relishes a shot from.
