While most of the UEFA World Cup qualifying groups are all wrapped up, there’s one table yet to be decided by one positively massive matchup on Tuesday: Switzerland vs. Portugal.
Despite Switzerland going an astounding 9-0-0 through qualification, Portugal has responded with eight wins in nine matches and trails by just three points. And with an eight-goal advantage in goal differential, a victory on Tuesday would send Fernando Santos’ side through to the World Cup, and Switzerland to the second-round playoff.
For viewers in the United States, the match is scheduled to start at 2:45 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. If you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream via a free trial of one of the following cable-free, live-TV services:

UEFA Group B World Cup Qualifying Table
Switzerland came away with the 2-0 triumph when these teams met in Basel a year ago:
Portugal is certainly the favorite with this one taking place at Estadio da Luz, though with the Swiss only needing a draw to win the group and qualify for Russia, they’ll be able to bunker down defensively. That’s easier said than done against Cristiano Ronaldo, Andre Silva and Co., but it should make for a compelling matchup.
