POR vs ISR Dream11 Prediction: Portugal will play host to Israel at the Jose Alvalade Stadium on Wednesday in an international friendly fixture. The hosts will be aiming to grab a morale boost ahead of their opening Euro 2020 game against Hungary. Meanwhile, Israel will look to make it three straight wins across all competitions.
Portugal come into this on the back of a goalless draw against Spain in their opening warm-up match. The starting eleven for that match was missing European finalists Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Bruno Fernandes so is likely to feature those four in this game. Portugal have suffered from flattering to deceive with an indifferent qualification in March with a slender 1-0 win over Azerbaijan, 2-2 draw against Serbia and going a goal down to Luxembourg. Portugal will likely win this match but Israel will prove to be a stubborn test.
