The Welsh will be missing the two players (not named Bale) - Ramsey and Davies - they would least like to have been without (even Ashley Williams has a solid replacement in Collins to come off the bench). The missing William Carvahlo is important for Portugal as well for the balance he provides in midfield but Danilo should be an able replacement. Portugal as the favourites will be expected to make the running, something which they have not done as yet in the elimination games and if they choose to sit back, this could be a dour, low-scoring game. Far more than a Ronaldo-Bale matchup!
