They also arrive in this semi clash on the back of a solid 4-0 thrashing of New Zealand to finish off group proceedings.

Having never lost to next opponents Chile, that will only add to their already high confidence.

But La Roja have showed resilience so far in Russia and the last time they played Portugal it ended level.

Therefore, back Portugal to prevail in extra-time in a very close clash at a tasty 10/1 with Sky Bet.

Cristiano Ronaldo has once again been the star of the show for Portugal so far this summer.

The Real Madrid marksman was voted Man of the Match in every game.

But his young teammate, and forward he has tipped to be his national successor, Andre Silva has also been superb.

The new Juventus recruit was on target in the most recent 4-0 romp over New Zealand with a fine finish.

He is therefore worthwhile backing to dispatch again in 90 minutes at 3/2 with Sky Bet.
