POR vs ALG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Portugal conclude their World Cup preparations with a hosting of North African side Algeria on Thursday at Estádio da Luz. They have become quite a familiar opponent to the African sides as this clash comes after the Euroa champions faced Egypt and Tunisia in their last games and will be facing Morocco in their World Cup opening match on 15th June.

Meanwhile, Algeria won’t be going to the World Cup this time around. But they do possess some remarkable talents in their ranks. Islam Slimani is a proven striker at the very highest level and would be at ease playing in Portugal after spending a large chunk of his career in Lisbon. Riyad Mahrez is another name who could dazzle any team with his performance and is subjected to a £60million bid from Man City.

Portugal, on the other hand, must solve their defensive frailties before they take on Spain in their first World Cup games. Before playing a goalless draw against Belgium in the last game, they conceded six in three games, 3 alone against the Netherlands.

We are expecting Portugal head coach Fernando Santos to name a strong playing 11 considering there is an 8-day gap between Algeria clash and their match against Spain in the World Cup.
