Croatia and Portugal will meet in the Round of 16 on Saturday night at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Portugal are still looking for their first win at the tournament after draws in all three of their group games.

Croatia have firmly established themselves as the tournament’s dark horses, winning two and drawing one of their three matches to top Group D. Ante Cacic’s side will come into the match on the back of a 2-1 win over holders Spain, that ended La Roja’s 14-match unbeaten run in the competition.

The Spain win match followed a 1-0 win over Turkey and a dramatic 2-2 draw with Czech Republic.

Croatia fullback, and captain of the side, Darijo Srna has been instrumental to Croatia’s success, winning a tournament-high 10 tackles in the group stage.

Luka Modric and Mario Mandzukic both missed the win over Spain through injury, although Cacic remains hopeful that the duo will be fit in time to face Portugal.

Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic has enjoyed a fabulous tournament so far, scoring twice and generally looking menacing down the left hand side.

With Ivan Rakitic in the central, together with Marcelo Brozovic, it’s to understand why Croatia are tipped to do so well.

Portugal qualified for the last sixteen as one of the four best third-placed sides.

Arnor Traustason’s 94th minute winner against Austria saw his Iceland side leapfrog Portugal into second place; karmic justice after Cristiano Ronaldo criticised the Iceland team earlier in the tournament.

The Real Madrid forward was back to his best in Portugal’s final group match against Hungary. Having failed to score in the opening two matches, Ronaldo found the back of the net twice as Portugal came from behind on three occasions to draw 3-3 with Hungary. He also bagged the assist for Nani’s second goal of the tournament.

Ronaldo’s 30 attempts at goal is by far and away the most by a player at the tournament, and includes his penalty miss against Austria in the second match.

Raphael Guerreiro missed the last match with a thigh injury and is an early doubt for the game. There are also doubts over Andre Gomes after he was substituted off against Hungary as a precaution.

Portugal have not lived up to many people’s pre-tournament expectations, however they survived their group, and there are green-shoots for optimism including impressive performances from William Carvalho and Joao Mario.

It’s also worth remembering how Italy drew their three opening games at World Cup 1982, only to go on to win the competition. It’s been done before.

A couple of match facts: Portugal’s last seven goals at the Euros have been scored by Cristiano Ronaldo (five) or Nani (two), while Croatia have lost only one of their last 10 games at the Euros.

Croatia to win. Cristiano Ronaldo to go missing all through the game, and to throw his crybaby tantrums as usual.

Lemme teach y'all a disappearing trick:
*STEP ONE - Wear a 'Number 7' Real Madrid or Portugal national team jersey.
*STEP TWO - Stand before a tall mirror
*STEP THREE - Say "Ronaldo" three times
...Poof! You're INVISIBLE. Thank me later! *winks*
