The hosts are likely to stick with their strongest lineup in an attempt to squeeze anything they can possibly get out of this match.
It would be a historic night for the Blue-Reds if they were to even snatch a point against the dominant Seleção.
Liechtenstein projected lineup (3-5-2, right to left): Buchel — Traber, Wieser, Marxer — Meier, Luchinger, Buchel, Sele, Goppel — Salanovic, Hasler.
Cristiano Ronaldo will be keen to add to a tally of nine goals in qualification and is likely to start for Martinez’s side in a star-studded frontline.
Portugal predicted lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Costa (GK) — Dalot, Inacio, Dias, Cancelo — B.Silva, Palhinha, Fernandes — Leao, Ronaldo, D.Jota.

Martinez could make a few changes to his starting XI as Portugal are the heavy favourites in this match but even then, that shouldn’t stop them from winning and keeping a clean sheet.
If there’s one thing we know about Ronaldo, it’s that he loves to add goals to his record in games that don’t necessarily matter too much. Call it stat-padding all you want, he’s out there to add to his incredible international goalscoring tally and will take no prisoners.
Prediction: Liechtenstein 0-4 Portugal
