Hungary vs Portugal

Portugal continue their FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign with a trip to the Groupama Arena, Budapest, where they will face Hungary on Sunday.

The European champions go into the game currently second in Group B, three points behind leaders Switzerland.

The hosts, meanwhile, are just a place behind in third but eight points behind Sunday's opponents. Their hopes of qualification are, therefore, exceedingly slim having suffered three defeats in their opening seven games.

The Real Madrid star will also need no reminding that he scored twice against Hungary back in March, as Portugal ran out 3-0 winners in Lisbon, with Andre Silva also on target.

Hungary are coming off the back of a 3-1 win over Latvia, which restored some morale following their embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Andorra in June, the minnows' first competitive win since 2004, per ESPN.

The hosts have never beaten Portugal and will need to be at their best defensively to get anything out of the game, with Sunday's visitors' having rattled in 27 goals in just seven games.
