Luxembourg Team News

Meanwhile, Luxembourg’s Christopher Martins and Gerson Rodrigues, the latter of whom scored the game’s first goal against Portugal in March, have returned to the squad after serving suspensions the previous time out.

Both players are strong possibilities for immediate recalls, with Rodrigues likely to replace 17-year-old Yvandro Borges Sanches and Martins likely to replace Olivier Thill.

Danel Sinani of Huddersfield Town was selected ahead of Edvin Muratovic to lead the line against Serbia, and he will be hoping to keep his spot in the final third for this crucial match.

Portugal Team News - Cristiano Ronaldo | Portugal vs Luxembourg

After suffering coronavirus, Francisco Trincao was forced to withdraw from this month’s matches, while Rafa Silva, Domingos Duarte, and Raphael Guerreiro will miss out due to injuries, and Diogo Jota’s participation is doubtful owing to a muscular condition.

Ronaldo was suspended for his team’s previous World Cup Qualifying match against Azerbaijan and given early leave to rejoin his Manchester United colleagues, but the 112-goal skipper is ready to lead the charge here.

Santos should reinstate Pepe, Ruben Dias, Bruno Fernandes, and Bernardo Silva to the first XI this week after giving marginal players a chance to shine in the Qatar friendly.

Possible Lineups

Portugal XI: Patricio; Cancelo, Pepe, Dias, Mendes; Moutinho, Palhinha, Fernandes; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Leao

Luxembourg XI: Moris; Jans, Chanot, Carlson, Pinto; Martins Pereira; Deville, S. Thill, Barreiro, Rodriguez; Sinani
