World Cup

The statistics for Portugal vs. Switzerland

– After facing each other twice in the Uefa Nations League in June, this will be Portugal and Switzerland’s third encounter in 2022. A week after Switzerland defeated Portugal 1-0 in Geneva, Portugal won 4-0 in a game played in Lisbon.

Portugal and Switzerland have competed against one another six times in the 21st century, with each side taking three victories. Switzerland prevailed 2-0 at the 2008 Euros in their only previous matchup at a major competition (World Cups and Euros).

– Portugal will aim to advance to the World Cup quarterfinals for just the third time; they previously did so in 1966 and 2006. However, they have lost each of their last four games in the tournament, including defeats at this stage in 2010 (0-1 vs. Spain) and in 2018. They have also failed to win any of their last five knockout games.

For the first time in their history, Switzerland will try to win three games in a single World Cup tournament after winning two of their matches in the group stage at the 2022 World Cup (L1 v. Brazil).

– In their last nine World Cup games, Portugal has scored first. However, they lost their most recent match against Korea Republic despite scoring first for the first time ever at a World Cup.

Portugal has scored at least once in each of their last nine games in the competition, and the last team to keep a clean sheet against them at the World Cup was Germany in 2014 (4-0). Bruno Fernandes (2) and Cristiano Ronaldo (6).

– Cristiano Ronaldo has scored all eight of his World Cup goals during the group stage, which is the joint-most goals scored by a player in tournament history without ever scoring during the knockout stages (alongside Lionel Messi). Despite playing 514 minutes and making 25 tries at goal in his six knockout games for Portugal at the World Cup, Ronaldo has yet to score.

– With his goal against Serbia last time out, Xherdan Shaqiri became the first Swiss player to score in three World Cup competitions. Shaqiri would tie Josef Hügi (6) as Switzerland’s all-time leading scorer at the World Cup if he scored in this game.

At the 2022 World Cup, Bruno Fernandes has directly contributed to four goals in two appearances for Portugal (two goals, two assists). Along with Kylian Mbappé and lvaro Morata, this was the joint-most by any player in the group stage (4).

888 meters have been covered by the ball by Manuel Akanji so far in the 2022 World Cup. Only three players—all Manchester City teammates—carried the ball farther than the Swiss during the group stage: John Stones (1080m), Nathan Aké (1001m), and Rodri (209m).
