It’s Day 2 of the Euro 2020 Round of 16! After two exciting matches on Saturday, Sunday brings us two more games with four teams vying for a place in the quarterfinals of the European Championships.

The second game of the day is one of the marquee matchups of this Round of 16, with two of the tournament favorites facing off in a Final-worthy game that will send one of them home earlier than expected. Belgium and Portugal clash in Seville, and boy does this promise to be good.

Belgium were as strong as expected in the group stage, winning all three games with their superior attacking talent and they are healthy and whole going into the knockouts. Portugal struggled in all three group matches and could count themselves lucky to get out of the Group of Death, but they are still way too talented to be taken for granted.

The star power in this one is immense, and this could easily turn into a 120-minute affair. What a game does this promise to be.
