What happened to the defensive Portugal of two years ago? Fernando Santos has seemingly changed his tactics if the 3-3 draw with Spain is any kind of yardstick, with Cristiano Ronaldo spearheading the team and bagging a hat-trick against La Roja.

The hunters now become the hunted, with Portugal clashing with a Morocco side who know that defeat in this clash means that their World Cup adventure could be over after they have faced Spain in the final group game.

Herve Renard’s team will look to contain their opponents in the early exchanges, with Ronaldo likely to be shackled although they might have to start taking risks at some stage of the match, leaving Portugal to expose the African side on the counter-attack.

While many describe Portugal as a one-player team, the presence of Bernardo Silva, Joao Moutinho and William Carvalho in the midfield make the European side one that could make steady progress in this tournament.

This is the sort of clash where the Portuguese will bide their time, knowing that they have the expertise to land the points come the final whistle. With Iran looming in their final game, a win here could put them in pole position to potentially win Group B.

We’ll go for Portugal to win after the game is level at the break, with a 2-0 scoreline looking about right.
