Hello and welcome to SunSport's live coverage of Belgium vs Portugal – Euro 2020's fourth last-16 clash of the tournament.
Tonight's game will finally see one of the so-called big boys leave the competition, with some serious star power at risk of having to pack their bags in the morning.
Belgium's Romelu Lukaku has been in scintillating form, scoring three times in the group stages… but Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo has been even better.
Football's premier superstar has 5 goals in three games so far this summer, including two penalties against favourites France.
Belgium finished top of their group with 9 points, having overcome Russia, Denmark and Finland in ruthless fashion.
Portugal, on the other hand, have had it a little tougher.
Ronaldo and co. have had to squabble for points with France, Germany and surprise package Hungary, who more than put up their share of brave battles throughout the group stage.
Fernando Santos' side finished third in their group with just four points, but it 2016 they finished in that same position with a point less before going on to win the tournament.
But tonight could be their toughest test yet, as No 1 ranked side Belgium look to win their first ever major international tournament.
So sit back, relax, crack open a cold one and enjoy tonight's action in Seville.
We'll have you covered all the way.
