Portugal Team News
Due to a muscle injury, Bernardo Silva missed Portugal’s match against the Republic of Ireland, but the Manchester City attacker will return to the starting XI for this match.
Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, and Diogo Jota were all used as replacements on Thursday but are expected to start here, while Joao Moutinho is vying for a starting spot in central midfield.
Portugal will be without Pepe after his red card against ROI, so Danilo Pereira might start again in the centre of the back four, but Jose Fonte is another option.
Nuno Mendes, who was suspended last time out, might possibly return to the starting lineup at left-back, implying that Nelson Semedo and Diogo Dalot will be dropped.

Serbia will make a number of changes from the squad that won the friendly against Qatar, with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Dusan Vlahovic, Nemanja Gudelj, Dusasn Tadic, and Nikola Milenkovic among those expected to start.
Vlahovic, who is now one of Europe’s most in-demand strikers, should be joined in the last third of the pitch by Mitrovic, with Tadic set to operate in a little deeper position.
Matija Nastastic, Marko Petkovic, Filip Djuricic, and Darko Lazovic have all been forced to withdraw due to injury, but the visitors do not have any new injury concerns heading into the game.
