Portugal will play Switzerland in a last-16 World Cup match on Tuesday. The two teams have met 25 times and in that Switzerland won 11 times, Portugal nine and five matches ended in draws.
Portugal won their first two World Cup group games, defeating Ghana 3-2 and Uruguay 2-0, but lost 2-1 to South Korea as coach Fernando Santos made six changes to his already-qualified team. Switzerland beat Cameroon 1-0 and Serbia 3-2 but in between lost 1-0 to Brazil.
Portugal, winners of Euro 2016, have had little impact on World Cups, going out in the first knockout round in 2018 and 2010, and even failing to get out of the group stage in 2014 and 2002. In 2006, Portugal got as far as the semi-final. Switzerland reached the knock-out stage in three of the last four World Cups but has not gotten to the quarter-final since 1954.
