Russia v Portugal: Build-up to Confed Cup clash in Moscow

Welcome to On Events Sport’s live updates of the Russia-Portugal match at Spartak Stadium in Moscow.

The two teams are meeting in Group A of the FIFA 2017 Confederations Cup, currently underway across four Russian cities. 

Russia claimed an opening game win in the tournament on Saturday, beating New Zealand 2-0 in St. Petersburg.

European champions Portugal seemed destined for a win when they took a 2-1 in the last five minutes of their match against Mexico in Kazan on Sunday, but had to settle for a 2-2 draw when Hector Moreno equalized for the Mexicans in injury time.

Here’s how things stand in Group A ahead of tonight’s games:

That means the onus is very much on Ronaldo and co. to press for a win today. It promises to be a lively game in front of a sell-out crowd at Spartak Stadium.
