    Belgium vs Portugal: Stats attack

    • This will be the first ever major tournament meeting 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 goals in total).
    • Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is now the top-scoring European player at major tournaments, his brace against France moving him above Miroslav Klose to 21 goals.
    • 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.
    • Since the end of the 2018 World Cup, Romelu Lukaku has scored 23 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions for Belgium, while also providing four assists. Lukaku has already netted three goals at Euro 2020 so far, just one shy of his best return at a major tournament (four at the 2018 World Cup).
