Euro 2020: Belgium v Portugal preview

The biggest clash in the round of 16 is the game between the best-ranked team in the world, Belgium, and the defending champions of the European Championship, Portugal at the Estadio de La Cartuja, Seville.

In 18 meetings between these two nations, Belgium have won 5 games, while Portugal have won 6 matches, with the other 7 games ending in a draw. The Red Devil’s last win over the Portuguese was in 1989.

Belgium fullback Timothy Castagne is a doubt for this clash due to an eye injury, while Nacer Chadli is also a doubt after complaining of physical discomfort. Portugal, on the other hand, could be without left-back Nuno Mendes, who is suffering from a muscle injury.

This is the most unpredictable clash of all. Belgium have better players, with better quality, but Portugal have Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the record goalscorer in the European Championship. The heart says Portugal and the brain says Belgium. But the big question is, will the five-time Ballon d’Or winner score his 110th international goal?
