Belgium and Portugal will play in one of the most anticipated Euro 2020 last-16 matches, Belgium vs Portugal in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand time on Sunday

During a faultless group stage run, the world’s top-ranked team looked deserving of that title, with Romelu Lukaku in good form with three goals.

The Portuguese have looked similarly formidable in attack, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring five goals and assisting three times in three games, but their defense has been a source of concern.

Belgium vs Portugal Overview

  1. This will be the first-ever major tournament meeting (World Cup/EUROs) between Belgium and Portugal; Portugal are unbeaten in their last five matches against Belgium across all competitions (W3 D2) since a 3-0 defeat in World Cup qualifying in September 1989.

2. Belgium have only failed to score in two of their last 58 games under Roberto Martínez, averaging exactly three goals per game in this stretch of fixtures (174 in total). The two games they have been shut out came in the 2018 World Cup semi-final against France (0-1), and in their most recent meeting with Portugal – a 0-0 draw in June 2018.

3. Belgium have reached the knockout stages in each of their last five appearances at a major tournament (EUROs and World Cup), progressing to the semi-final in their previous one at the 2018 World Cup.

Their defeat to eventual winners France in 2018 is the only one of their last 10 games at major tournaments that they have failed to win (W9).

4. Portugal have qualified for the knockout stages of the EUROs in third place for the second tournament in a row, also doing so in 2016 before going on to lift the trophy. Indeed, their return of four points from their three group games is the poorest return for a EUROs defending champion since Greece in 2008 (0).

5. Belgium’s victory over Finland last time out marked their ninth win at the World Cup & Euros combined under Roberto Martínez, with the Spaniard now holding the outright managerial record for major tournament wins with the Red Devils.
