The world’s top-ranked team take on the reigning champions in arguably the pick of the last-16 ties at Euro 2020.
Given the envious attacking quality at the disposal of both nations, who have scored 14 goals between them so far, we can expect quite a spectacle in Seville.
Belgium were one of only three teams to enjoy a 100 per cent record in the group stage, while they conceded just a single goal along the way.
Roberto Martinez’s side are now unbeaten in their last 12 games – winning 10 – and will hope this is the year they finally land the first major silverware in their history.
Meanwhile, Portugal prevailed from the ‘group of death’ alongside France and Germany as the one of the best third-placed teams; scoring seven times.
Defeat by the Germans was the only one they have suffered in nine games, and will look to continue that solid form in their quest for successfully defend the crown.

Over in Portugal’s corner, Cristiano Ronaldo’s five goals have seen him equal Ali Daei’s all-time international record of 109, while the Selecao skipper has opened the scoring in two of their three outings thus far.
