Will 1 of them turn on the style here and grab a semi final spot for their country, if i had to have a bet i would fancy Ronaldo and Portugal to win this.

0-0 is 2.25
1-1 is 9.0
Particularly the wingers Kuba and Grosicki have been strong and I think they will play a key part against the relatively average Portuguese defense. However, I assume a low scoring game is quite obvious.
2-2 on 90. Portugal to win in extra-time, maybe penalties and I think Ronaldo is going to shine in this game.
Portugal are giving a start to Renato Sanchez if rumours are to be believed, he's an exciting prospect but still a bit unpredictable and raw, they have an advantage i think because many of Poland's main players are one yellow card away from missing the semi final, which may put some doubt in their mind before making a tackle, this could be crucial, because no player wants to miss a Semi Final.
Overall, Poland have been great defensively in this tournament so far and have caused teams problems going forward, however, they have faded in the 2nd half of matches, against Switzerland they significantly faded in the 2nd half and in the end were delighted with penalties.
I think Portugal have lots of energy from the bench, players like Quaresma are the last thing a tired defender wants to see in the 75th minute. if it's a tight match, which it more than likely will be. this gives Portugal the edge in my opinion.
But it all comes down too...who takes their chances. Milik and Lewandowski or Ronaldo and Nani. it's as simple as that.
with that is included a piece on total team goals listing how many goals the remaining teams have scored in 90 minutes, not including extra time :-
Portugal have scored 4 & Poland 3
Poland & Portugal are the two lowest scoring teams of the 8 left, both have been involved in 0-0 draws and 6 of their 8 combined games played so far have been draws at 90 minutes, both also gone to Extra time at least once already
anything can of course in a one off match but surely those stats suggest it will be a tight, competitive match with not many goals, maybe a 0-0/1-0 type game that could go to extra time and maybe penalties, Portugal did have a 3-3 draw but it's tough to see too many goals in this one, hope I'm wrong from an entertainment perspective
good luck with your bets.
This is probably the best way to put it. Both have been ineffective compared to the amount of chances they had, but will need to be better tonight. I honestly don't know who will, that's why I'm expecting a low scoring game for those 2 yet again.But it all comes down too...who takes their chances. Milik and Lewandowski or Ronaldo and Nani. it's as simple as that.
