Confederation Cup 2017 second round will stak this Wednesday, with Russia and Portugal being face to face from 16:00, UK Time.
Russian are the hosts of this competition, getting ready for World Cup 2018. They started this edition with a win, 2-0 over New Zealand in the opening game after they controlled the whole game. Altough they are hosts, Russia start as underdogs against Portugal. They have won the last meeting with Portugal, 1-0 in a friendly game that took place in November 2015 and they conceded no goal in the last three home meetings with the Lusitans.
Portugal faced Mexico in the opening round and they had a difficult mission. Ronaldo and his teammates took the lead in the 86th minute, but Mexico scored for 2-2 in the injury time. Now they need a win here to remain in the qualification race with a really good chance, but it's not going to be easy against the hosts. Portugal scored 11 goals in the last three trips (2-2 vs Mexico, 3-0 vs Latvia and 6-0 vs Faroe Islands).
