Portugal will be looking to progress to the last-eight in the 2022 World Cup with a round of 16 win against Switzerland at the Lusail Iconic Stadium on Tuesday.

Portugal are hoping to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup for just a third time, previously doing so in 1966 and in 2006. However, they’ve failed to win any of their last five knockout games at the tournament, losing each of their last four, including defeats at this stage in 2010 (0-1 vs Spain) and in 2018 (1-2 vs Uruguay).

Meanwhile, Switzerland head into this match after winning two of their three group stage matches. Xherdan Shaqiri’s goal against Serbia last time out saw him become the first player to score in three World Cup tournaments for Switzerland and if finds the net again he would equal Josef Hügi (6) as his country's all-time top scorer at the World Cup.

Portugal squad and team news

Portugal will miss the services of Danilo Pereira and Otavio. The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has suffered a fractured rib and will remain sidelined while Otavio is struggling with a muscle issue.

Fernando Santos made six changes to the squad against South Korea to rest his key players ahead of this knockout match. But on Tuesday, the likes of Ruben Dias and Bruno Fernandes will start.

Switzerland squad & team news

Goalkeeper Yann Sommer remains a doubt with illness and if he cannot make it to the starting XI then he will be replaced by Gregor Kobel.

It would not be surprising if Murat Yakin fields the same XI that started against Serbia with Breel Embolo leading the line and Granit Xhaka and Remo Freuler as double pivots. Meanwhile, Ruben Vargas and Xherdan Shaqiri should take their place in the flanks.
