|DATE:||6 Dec 2022|
|VENUE:||Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, Qatar|
Group H topper Portugal will clash with Switzerland, the runners-up of Group G in this Round of 16 match. Unlike a few other groups at the FIFA World Cup 2022, the toppers of these two groups turned out to be no surprise. While Brazil topped Group G, it was Portugal that finished first in Group H.
Portugal topped Group H en route to the Round of 16 and Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. have been paired against Switzerland in their first knockout test.
The Swiss produced an impressive 3-2 win over Serbia to secure their spot in the next phase in Qatar, as they finished runners-up behind Brazil in Group G.
Ronaldo won his first international title with Portugal at Euro 2016, but there is a growing sense at this being his final shot at a World Cup, as he turns 38 in 2023.
Switzerland have reached the Round of 16 for a third successive World Cup but they have not made it to the quarterfinals since hosting the tournament back in 1954.
Portugal, although suffering their first defeat at Qatar 2022 in the final group match, advanced as the group’s top team – thanks to Uruguay’s victory against Ghana. They are now trying to go to the round of 16 for the first time since Germany 2006, when they finished fourth. Until December 4, Without ever scoring in the knockout round, Ronaldo shared with Lionel Messi the record for the most world cup goals. Now, CR7 will have a chance to get past Messi while Portugal want their golden boy to shine and fine the net this time.
Although Switzerland are aware that they are not the favourites to beat Portugal in the round of 16, they know that anything could happen this time. It does not matter much who is stronger on paper as, at FIFA 2022, there have been many unexpected results, such as Portugal losing their most recent game 2-1 to South Korea. Switzerland have never won three matches at a single world cup. Switzerland haven’t reached the quarter-finals since they hosted the world cup in 1954. They must win this match to have a chance to create new records.
There have been 20 matches between Portugal and Switzerland so far. Portugal have won nine of those matches while Switzerland have won 11 of those, and five of those matches ended in a draw. In their lone prior meeting at a major competition, Switzerland defeated Portugal 2-0 at Euro 2008.
