Belgium v Portugal live stream, ITV, Sunday 27 June, 8pm BST

Arguably the most mouth-watering tie of the last 16 takes place in Seville on Sunday when two of the pre-tournament favourites, Belgium and Portugal, go head to head for a quarter-final spot.

The two nations were high on the list of the bookies’ favourites before Euro 2020 kicked off, with both sides boasting squads dripping with talent.

Belgium fared better in the group stages, but with good reason – they had to get past Russia, Finland and Denmark, while Portugal’s title defence began in the ‘group of death’ against France, Germany and Hungary.

The Belgians powered through Group B with ease, winning all their games with an aggregate score of 9-1.

Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku have been in particularly irresistible form.

The Inter Milan striker has netted three goals so far, while the Manchester City magician almost single-handedly turned the game around against Denmark when he came off the bench for the second half with his team trailing 1-0 to score one goal and set up another in a 2-1 win.

There is a suspicion that the Belgians are a little too top-heavy; names like Tomas Vermaelen and Jason Denayer in defence are a bit at odds with the attacking superstars on offer, which include Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens as well as the aforementioned duo.

Portugal will be hoping they can put that back line to the sword in a game that could also prove to be a big moment for the Golden Boot race, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lukaku among the favourites to finish as top scorer.

Portugal snuck through as one of the best third-placed teams after beating Hungary, losing to Germany and drawing with France in a so-so group showing.

Ronaldo scored twice from the penalty spot against the world champions to take his tournament tally to five goals so far, two more than Lukaku.

There’s certainly a sense that the best is yet to come from the defending champions, although the same was true in 2016, when they drew all three group games before going on to win the tournament.

A total of six goals conceded in three games is a concern, especially against Belgium’s attacking arsenal, but it could make for a thrill-a-minute contest in Spain. Let’s hope so.

Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on ITV. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Belgium v Portugal live stream from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for any Euro 2020 fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you still want to catch Harry Kane's in-swinging corners without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
