Looking for a Portugal v Spain live stream? We've got you covered. 

Portugal and Spain face off in Braga for a place in the Nations League finals on Tuesday, with the visitors needing a win to progress.  

The Group A2 standings were shaken up on Saturday night when Portugal thrashed the Czech Republic 4-0 and Spain suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Switzerland.

That saw Fernando Santos’ side leapfrog their Iberian neighbours into top spot ahead of the final round of action.

Portugal are two points ahead of Spain and therefore just need to avoid defeat to book a place in the finals.

Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot was the surprise hero at the weekend, netting twice to add to a goal from his club-mate Bruno Fernandes and Liverpool’s Diogo Jota.

Portugal are on a four-match winning run at home, while Spain haven’t won on any of their last three visits.

The Portuguese were the winners of the inaugural Nations League in 2018/19, while Spain were beaten by France in last season’s final.

Luis Enrique’s side’s hopes of returning to the final four were dealt a blow by the Swiss, who ended a eight-match unbeaten run that stretched back to the Nations League final in Milan last October. 

Portugal earned a 1-1 draw in Spain in their opening game of the Nations League campaign, when Ricardo Horta’s late equaliser cancelled out an Alvaro Morata goal.

Both sides will be looking to end the international break on a high with World Cup 2022 (opens in new tab) just around the corner.  

Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo is back in contention for the Portugal squad (opens in new tab) after being suspended for the last game.

In the Spain squad (opens in new tab), Dani Carvajal and Diego Llorente could return after sitting out the last match.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Nations League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
