Liechtenstein will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 4-0 Euro - Qualifiers defeat in their last game at the hands of Iceland.
Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson (22', 49'), Alfreð Finnbogason (44') and Hákon Arnar Haraldsson (63') scored for Iceland.
A recurring aspect of recent Liechtenstein games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their previous six clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've lost.
Portugal will go into this game following a 0-5 Euro - Qualifiers win vs Bosnia in their last outing.
For Portugal, the goalscorers were Cristiano Ronaldo (5', 20'), Bruno Fernandes (25'), João Cancelo (32') and João Félix (41').
The attack-minded Portugal have managed to bag an abundance of goals over their previous six clashes (22 in all). That means that they have an impressive average of 3.67 goals scored per match over this period. We shall soon see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.

Team News: Liechtenstein
The Liechtenstein boss Konrad Fünfstück will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all before this match owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
It looks as if Liechtenstein will probably employ a 3-5-2 formation for this game and select Benjamin Buechel, Andreas Malin, Sandro Wieser, Lars Traber, Niklas Beck, Simon Luchinger, Marcel Buechel, Aron Sele, Maximilian Goppel, Julien Hasler and Dennis Salanovic.
Team News: Portugal
Owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, the Portugal manager Roberto Martínez doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash.
We are inclined to think that A Selecção seem most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-3 system with a starting lineup of Jose Sa, Joao Cancelo, Antonio Silva, Toti Gomes, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota, Cristiano Ronaldo, Goncalo Ramos and Joao Felix.
When taking all factors into account, Portugal should really get more than enough chances to find the net on several occasions while not conceding against Liechtenstein, who might well find it a difficult task to be scoring at all.
It may well be a case of one-way traffic.
Our selection here is for a decent 0-3 win with maybe even more goals for Portugal at the conclusion of the game.
