Portugal and Denmark are the top two teams in Group I of Euro 2016 qualifying, and will battle for top spot in the final qualifier for the Danes on Thursday night.
Denmark is in a virtual must-win to have any hope of progressing. Third-placed Albania is a point behind the Danes with a match less played. If Albania defeats Serbia Thursday and Denmark loses at Portugal, Denmark might be relegated to the playoffs.
Portugal have won five straight matches in qualifying after losing on opening night, making Thursdays task a tall one for Morten Olsen’s men.
