With both teams having run out as 3-1 victors in their respective semi-finals matches, Portugal are set to face the Netherlands in the inaugural UEFA Nations League final on Sunday night. Can Ronaldo add a new honour to his CV or will Ronald Koeman's young side upset the party in Porto? Read on to find out how you can catch a Portugal vs Netherlands live stream from anywhere around the world with our instructions below.

Portugal vs Netherlands – where and when

The 2019 Nations League final is being held at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in the northern Portuguese city of Guimarães. Named after the country's first king, the 30,000 capacity ground is the home of FC Vitória de Guimarães.

Taking place today (Sunday, June 9) kick-off is at 7.45pm local time (so that's 8.45pm CET, 7.45pm BST, 2.45pm ET, 11.45am PT and 5.45am AET early on Monday morning).

With Ronaldo in seemingly unstoppable form following his match-winning hat-trick against Switzerland on Wednesday, and Portugal's past form against their opponents hard to ignore (they've only lost one of their last 11 encounters with Holland), the smart money (according to Betfair, at least) would appear to be on the hosts to win the first ever Nations League title.

However, while detractors (and bitter England fans) may argue that the Oranje men only made it to the final because of Gareth Southgate's side's defensive gaffes, they'd be ignoring the fact that the Dutch were the better side for much of the match.

Those backing Holland for glory on Sunday night will also point to the fact that the last time Portugal lost to the Dutch was in their previous meeting - an emphatic 3-0 humbling in March last year during a friendly in Switzerland.
