The round of 16 of this World Cup Qatar 2022 will have a very interesting clash of European teams as Portugal will face Switzerland. As this is the knockout stage, only one of the two can win and here we tell you what will happen if Portugal wins.
Portugal are favorites to win this match and also to advance to the finals of this World Cup. They had no major problems progressing as leaders in the group stage, despite losing in the 3rd match against South Korea. Of course, now they have to show their favorite.
The Swiss know they are the least popular and should go in search of a surprise. Their group stage was lackluster. Only in the match against Serbia did the Swiss team see good moments, but not against Brazil or Cameroon (despite the victory). They need to do better if they want to beat the tough Portuguese.
What happens if Portugal win?
As mentioned before, as it is an elimination phase, there can be no tie: one of the two must win. They can do it in the 90 minutes, in the extra time or by penalties if the tie persists. In this case we will analyze what happens if this game is won by Portugal.
If Cristiano Ronaldo‘s team wins, they will advance to the quarterfinals of Qatar 2022. There they will face the winner of the game between Morocco and Spain looking for a place in the semifinals where their rivals will be the winners of the match between England and France.
