Worth mentioning: Portugal are undefeated in their last nine outings, winning four of those in the process. Cristiano Ronaldo and company missed to hit the back of the net in just two of their previous fourteen encounters, and this game is like a test for them as they face the best central defender in the world right now in the face of Virgil van Dijk. The Portuguese national team does not know what a defeat is at home for more over two years. Just one of the last five Portugal matches featured over 2.5 goals, while three saw both sides involved in the game to hit the back of the nets.
Three of the last five Netherlands outings produced over 2,5 goals as three witnessed goals at both ends. The Netherlands were also able to keep two clean sheets during that run. The Johan Cruyff compatriots are without a triumph in their previous five matches away from home, but they did score in all of those games and lost just one and drew in the other four.
