What has been Portugal and Luxembourg's form in the 2020 UEFA Euro Qualifiers?
Portugal is yet to lose a game in the UEFA European Qualifying stage, although they had a slow start with two straight draws. The last two wins for Portugal have cemented their chances of success in this group, as they have been able to score nine times while conceding only three, including a crucial win against Serbia.
Luxembourg kicked off with a bang, but they have failed to win a single game since Matchday 1. Luc Holtz's men have lost three out of their last four games, including their 3-1 defeat against Serbia in their last outing so far.

Luxembourg enters this game in fourth place of this group, with one win, one draw and three losses so far in the competition. The Red Lions have found the back of the net eight times, but their rivals have done the same eight times, which has seen them earn only four points. This may be one of their final chances to keep their 2020 UEFA Euro chances alive.

Portugal vs Luxembourg - Who's in and who's out?
Portugal will face this game without Joao Cancelo, , Daniel Carrico and Renato Sanches as their main absences, since coach Fernando Santos snubbed them from the squad that will play in this international break. One more notable absence is that of Diogo Jota, who is still waiting to make his debut with A Selecao.
Luxembourg will be without Young Boys' defender Christopher Martins and most notably, without striker Aurelien Joachim. Joachim needs one more goal to become Luxembourg's all-time top scorer, and with the team's fading chances of keeping themselves alive in the competition, his absence comes as quite a surprise for fans and experts.
