After four matches in the European Qualifiers, the 2016 Euro winners boast an impeccable record with four wins, 14 goals scored, and none conceded.

Roberto Martinez's side are currently leading Group J with an absolute 12 points ahead of Slovakia (10), Luxembourg (7), Bosnia and Herzegovina (3), Iceland (3) and Liechtenstein (0).

Team news

The newly appointed manager Roberto Martinez faced high expectations when he took over from Euro 2016-winning coach Fernando Santos, who had moved on to Poland.

However, the Spaniard couldn't have asked for a better start. In their first four matches against Bosnia-Herzegovina, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, and Iceland, Portugal has amassed 12 points, scored 14 goals, and maintained a clean sheet in all four games.

Selecao's record at this level is impressive, with just one defeat in their last 19 matches, which occurred against Ukraine in 2019. Furthermore, they have a history of success against Slovakia, having remained undefeated in their previous four encounters, including a 2-0 win in a 2006 World Cup qualifier where Ronaldo scored his side's second goal.

Portugal's squad for October games.

Goalkeepers: Diogo Costa (Porto), José Sá (Wolverhampton), Rui Patrício (Roma);

Defenders: Diogo Dalot (Manchester United), Nélson Semedo (Wolverhampton), João Cancelo (Barcelona), António Silva (Benfica), Gonçalo Inácio (Sporting), Tote Gomes (Wolverhampton), Raphael Guerreiro (Bayern Munich), Danilo Pereira (PSG), Rúben Dias (Manchester City);

Midfielders: João Palhinha (Fulham), Rúben Neves (Al-Hilal), João Neves (Benfica), Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), Otávio (Al-Nassr), Vítor Vinha (PSG);

Forwards: Ricardo Orta (Braga), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Rafael Leão (Milan), João Félix (Barcelona), Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nassr), Gonçalo Ramush (PSG), Diogo Jota (Liverpool), Pedro Neto (Wolverhampton).
