Both teams have never played in the Euro championship but their last four meetings recorded winning as no draw was recorded in those matches. Portugal defeated Poland three times out of their last four meetings in 2008 (3-1), 2009 (2-1) and 2016 (0-1), while Poland won the most recent in 2016 (0-1).
Portugal will rely heavily on experience to make headway ahead of Poland who kept a clean record en route the quarter-final, playing draw in all their three group matches and narrowly qualifying for the knockout stage courtesy of one of the four available lifelines available for best losers. They struggled to beat Croatia in the knockout stage by 1-0 during the extra time, getting themselves to the quarter-final to face Poland. Portugal have struggled all through, and Ronaldo saved the team on one occasion scoring two goals to level up with Hungary. They have a 45% chance of making it to the semi-final.

Poland are arguably one of the new powers emerging as far as European football is concerned, coming to Euro for the third time and reaching the quarter-final after two previous appearances where they left at the group stage (2008, 2012). They proved a point in the group stage of Euro 2016, winning two matches and compelling three-times champions Germany to a goalless draw, thereby finishing second on the group. They have a 55% chance of moving to the last four when they meet.
