Portugal take on Wales on Wednesday night at the The Parc Olympique Lyonnais in the first of the Euro 2016 semi-finals. The first competitive match between the two nations will see Real Madrid superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale go head-to-head.

Remarkably, Portugal are yet to win a match at Euro 2016 within 90 minutes. Fernando Santos’ side reached the last four with a 5-3 penalty shootout win over Poland following a 1-1 draw after extra time. Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring early on for Poland but Portugal responded brilliantly and were back on level terms after the half-hour mark. 18-year-old midfielder Renato Sanches combined brilliantly with Nani before drilling a low shot past Lukasz Fabianksi.

Portugal scored all five of their penalties in the shootout, with captain Ronaldo taking the first kick. Rui Patricio saved Poland’s fourth penalty, allowing substitute Ricardo Quaresma to settle the tie with Portugal’s final spot kick.

Midfielder William Carvalho will miss the match through suspension after picking up his second booking of the tournament against Poland. Carvalho is likely to be replaced by Porto midfielder Danilo Pereira. Left back Raphael Guerreiro faces a race against time to be fit in time to face Wales, meaning Eliseu is likely to keep his place in the starting eleven.

Wales became the first Euro debutants to reach the semi-finals since Sweden did so in 1994. Chris Coleman’s side stunned audiences, coming from behind to beat Belgium 3-1.

Radja Nainggolan opened the scoring with a brilliant long-range effort. Wales captain Ashley Williams got on the end of Aaron Ramsey’s corner to head home an equaliser before half time. Ramsey got his second assist of the match, and fourth of the tournament, when he said up Hal Robson-Kanu for Wales’ second. The tie was settled late on when substitute Sam Vokes headed past Thibaut Courtois.

Ramsey and Ben Davies both picked up second tournament bookings, ruling them out of the semi-final. Premier League winner Andy King should come into the midfield to replace Ramsey while James Collins is likely to replace Davies at centre back.

Coleman described Ronaldo and Bale as “two of the best players on the planet.”

“I don’t suppose there will be any love lost on the evening. We know what’s at stake, any friendship will have to wait until after the game. It’s the same message, we won’t change anything. We can’t affect what’s said about the game. All we can control is ourselves, our group, and how we approach it,” he added.

Possible XI

Portgual: Patricio, Cedric, Pepe, Fonte, Eliseu, Danilo, Sanches, Mario, Moutinho, Ronaldo, Nani

Wales: Hennessey, Gunter, Collins, Williams, Chester, Taylor, King, Allen, Ledley, Bale, Robson-Kanu

Its a very hard one for Madrid fans (myself inclusive). But i'll still give it to portugal because of CR7's achievements. I hope he crowns it up with a European cup.
