• This will be Poland and Portugal's third encounter at a major tournament, their first in the European Championships. They have so far won one each: 1-0 to Poland at the 1986 World Cup and 4-0 to Portugal at the 2002 World Cup.
  • Poland are unbeaten in their last three head-to-heads with Portugal (W1 D2).
  • Portugal's last six goals against Poland have all been scored in the second-half.
  • Poland have made it to the quarter-finals of the EURO for the first time in their history. The only previous time they reached the semis of a major tournament was in the 1982 World Cup.
  • Portugal are the only team to have reached the quarter-finals of the European Championships in every tournament since 1996 (6 in a row). They have the chance to reach the semis for the fifth time in seven EURO participations.
  • Poland have never scored more than one goal in a single game at the EURO (10 games). Actually, none of their 10 games in the competition has produced more than two goals (scored + conceded).
  • Poland are in fact the lowest scoring side amongst those to have made it to the quarter-finals (3 goals in 4 games).
  • Poland have yet to trail at any point in a game at this year's European Championships. They've only conceded one goal so far in four games.
  • Poland's last win in the knockout stages of a major tournament without resorting to penalty kicks was in 1982 against France (3-2, third place final).
  • Portugal have played the most games in the history of the European Championships without ever winning the tournament: 32 games, 0 trophy.
  • Portugal are unbeaten in their 11 competitive fixtures under Fernando Santos (W8, D3), all eight of their wins in that run being decided by a single goal (including extra time win against Croatia).
  • The last three goals conceded by Portugal at the EURO have all followed the same pattern: all have been scored from set-pieces and from outside the box.
  • Portugal have picked up the fewest cards at EURO 2016 among the teams to have made it to the quarter-finals (3 in four games).
  • This will be Portugal's third game at Marseille's Vélodrome stadium at a major tournament. Their previous two were at EURO 1984: they drew 1-1 with Spain in the group stages and lost 3-2 after extra-time against France in the semis.
  • Meanwhile, Poland's only previous game in Marseille was a 1-0 win against Ukraine in this year's group stages.
  • Robert Lewandowski scored in the 17th minute of his first game at the EURO (v Greece in 2012). Since then, he's failed to find the net or deliver an assist in the competition in 643 minutes.
  • Jakub Blaszczykowski has been directly involved in all five of Poland's goals in the last two EURO tournaments (3 goals, 2 assists).
  • Cristiano Ronaldo has played in more games than any other player in EURO finals (18). He's now only one goal short of Michel Platini's record of nine goals in the competition.
  • Ronaldo has only scored two goals in 12 knockout games at major tournaments (semi-final at EURO 2004; quarter-final at EURO 2012).
  • Ronaldo has now also attempted 40 direct free-kicks at major tournaments with Portugal but is yet to score with any of these efforts.
  • Ricardo Quaresma is the most prolific substitute so far at EURO 2016 with one assist (v Hungary) and one goal (v Croatia) after coming off the bench.
