One of the more intriguing quarterfinal matchups of the 2022 World Cup will see Portugal attempt to end the fairytale run of Morocco, whilst continuing the charge to finally deliver Cristiano Ronaldo the one trophy that has eluded him.
There’s no shortage of plot lines for this match as a Portugal side off a 6-1 smashing of Switzerland in the Round of 16 grapple with whether to stick with hat-trick hero Goncalo Ramos or to bring back Ronaldo from the off.
Morocco, meanwhile, continue to confound expectations at this World Cup. Backed by massive travelling support, they topped a group featuring Belgium and Croatia and then successfully held out a Spain team over 120 minutes before defeating them 3-0 in the penalty shootout.
Their defence has been the backbone of their success, with just one own goal conceded all tournament with goalkeeper Yassine Bounou being particularly impressive, but their midfield and attack has also had moments of quality that has helped get them through games. They will back themselves against a side they nearly defeated in the group stages at the 2018 World Cup.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the match in Australia on TV or online via live stream.
