Belgium vs Portugal
POR vs BEL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Belgium host Portugal in first of the three friendlies they will be playing before they start their World Cup campaign against Panama on 18th June.
Both these team are being seen as the dark horses for the biggest prize in world football. Portugal, because they have a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks who shines the brightest at the biggest of the stages and for the matter of the fact they are the European champions and under Fernando Santos, they just know how to punch above their weights.
Belgium, well they are one of the most talented squads in the world. At every position, Roberto Martinez has the luxury of naming a world class talent. From goalkeeping position to the forward line, Belgium are 2nd to none and anything less than a semifinal appearance for them would be seen as an underwhelming campaign.

POR vs BEL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Suspension
Belgium vs Portugal:
Belgium: Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez has a plethora of talent available at his disposal and must cut his 28-man squad down to 23 by June 4. We are not expecting the former Everton manager to be too experimental against such strong opposition with the likes of Premier League heavyweights Thibaut Courtois, De Bruyne, Hazard and Jan Vertonghen are all likely to feature. However, it remains to be seen, whether Toby Alderweireld will be given a chance in defence after struggling for game time at Tottenham during the latter part of the season.
Meanwhile, Radja Nainggolan won’t be paying in this game as well as in World Cup as he hasn’t been selected by Martinez in his preliminary squad.
Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo missed the last game for Portugal as he was involved with Real Madrid in the Champions League and is a doubt ahead of this game also.
