Portugal v Turkey World Cup qualifiers play-off kick-off time, TV channel, watch live stream

Portugal are one defeat away from missing what looks likely to be Cristiano Ronaldo’s last World Cup but the beauty of the play-offs is that their fate remains in their own hands.

The Estádio do Dragão in Porto will play host to the clash between Portugal and Turkey in the World Cup Qualifiers on Thursday night.

The chance to face either Italy or North Macedonia for a place in the 2022 Qatar World Cup is on the line so it promises to be a tense evening.

A 2-1 defeat to Serbia in the final round of fixtures meant Portugal finished behind the Eastern European side in World Cup European Qualification Group A while despite taking 21 points from 10 games, Turkey finished second to the Netherlands in Group G.

Things have not always clicked for the hosts under Fernando Santos but it is vital that they do on Thursday.

Our prediction: Portugal v Turkey

Portugal have no shortage of attacking talent available to them, it’s just going to be about Santos finding the right combination and balance.

They’ll have to be particularly careful of the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu and Burak Yilmaz but with so much on the line, it seems more likely we’ll see a cagey affair than a shootout.

Ultimately, however, this feels like just the sort of occasion in which Ronaldo usually makes his presence felt.

Our prediction: Portugal 2-1 Turkey
