It’s final matchday in the Round of 16 and this time out two teams who have had a great rivalry over the past few years are coming up against each other as it’s Portugal vs Switzerland at the Lusail Stadium. Now coming into this match both teams are not in the best of forms as Ronaldo’s side suffered a shock defeat in the last minute against their group rivals South Korea and the Swiss just edged out a win against Serbia by a scoreline of 3-2. Hence now they would be looking to forget about their recent result and focus on this crucial encounter.
Porugal would be the rghful favourites in this match given their quality and the history that they have in this competition. Whereas Switzerland would be looking cause a potential upset and the Portuguese players need to be alert on that cause their opponents surely have the potential to defeat them. Last year in Euros, in this very stage Switzerland pulled off the unthinkable as they defeated the defending champions France and this happened after they were 2-0 down in the match. However, for Portugal, they one man who could decide the result of this game and that player is Cristiano Ronaldo, he knows that this will be his last WorldCup and he would give out everything in order to win this encounter.
