Portugal v Serbia live stream, Sunday 14 November, 5pm GMT
Portugal and Serbia will battle it out on Sunday for a place at the 2022 World Cup.
The two nations are level on 17 points apiece at the top of Group A. Portugal have a superior goal difference and will therefore advance to Qatar if the scores finish level at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. Serbia need to win to qualify automatically and condemn Portugal to the play-offs.
Cristiano Ronaldo and co. were held to a 0-0 draw by the Republic of Ireland last time out. In a strange way, dropping two points in Dublin has not really affected Sunday's showdown. A draw would still have been enough for Portugal had they beaten Ireland, while Serbia would still have required a win in Lisbon to secure top spot.
Still, Thursday's result was not ideal preparation for this winner-takes-all encounter. Portugal could have gone into this game full of confidence after a thumping win against Ireland, but they were flat for most of the match and created little in the way of clear-cut chances. After Pepe's red card late on, Ireland could easily have snatched a winner.
Fernando Santos' side still have their fate in their own hands, though, and they will expect to see off Serbia on home turf. The reverse fixture was a 2-2 draw back in March, when Portugal threw away a two-goal lead in the second half. Serbia were also held to a draw by Ireland back in September, so perhaps we should not read too much into Portugal's disappointing display on Thursday.
Pepe is suspended and will play no part in this Group A decider, while Anthony Lopes, Rafa Silva and Joao Mario are all injured. Bernardo Silva is a doubt after missing the Ireland game.
Serbia thrashed Qatar 4-0 in a friendly ahead of this match, but Filip Duricic and Darko Lazovic have been forced to drop out of the squad.
Kick-off is at 5pm GMT on Sunday, 14 November, and UK viewers can watch it on Sky Sports Red Button. See below for international broadcast options.
Use a VPN to watch World Cup qualifiers from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of 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 Steve Bruce’s extra-red face 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:
