Belgium vs Portugal: Team news & key stats

Nelson Semedo Portugal Euro 2020

Belgium began the tournament with fitness doubts over Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard but both key players started the final group game against Finland and should be available this weekend.

Nelson Semedo limped off in Portugal’s 2-2 draw against France on Wednesday evening and the Wolves full-back faces a race against time to be fit for Sunday, while Nuno Mendes also remains an injury doubt.

Key stats:

  • 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.
     
  • 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.
     
  • Despite playing just 134 minutes of action so far, Kevin De Bruyne has had a direct hand in three of Belgium’s seven goals at EURO 2020, netting once and delivering two assists. Dating back to the 2018 World Cup, De Bruyne has assisted in his last three major tournament appearances, with teammate Eden Hazard – between 2016 & 2018 – the last European player to do so in four straight matches at major tournaments (5).
     
  • Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is now the top-scoring European player at major tournaments (World Cup & Euros), with his brace against France moving him beyond Miroslav Klose (19) to 21 goals. Indeed, that was Ronaldo’s second brace of EURO 2020 already – no player has ever registered three in a single tournament at the European Championships.
