Ronaldo.com previews the World Cup quarter-final tie between Morocco and Portugal and includes the latest CR7 stats with free betting tips.

Cristiano Ronaldo will compete in the World Cup quarter-finals for the second time in his career when Portugal take on Morocco on Saturday.

Although the Portuguese head to the Al Thumama Stadium as favorites, victory is far from a sure thing as Morocco are more than capable of mixing it up just about any of the big boys right now – just ask Belgium and Spain!

What is Ronaldo’s record against Morocco?

Cristiano Ronaldo’s sole appearance against Morocco came in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The Portugal skipper scored a 4th-minute goal to seal a 1-0 win in Group B back then. He’ll hope for a similar outcome on Saturday to help his team reach the semi-finals and equal Eusebio’s record of nine World Cup goals.

The big question hanging over Ronaldo is whether he’ll start for this quarter-final clash. The forward surprisingly ended up on the bench in the 6-1 win over Switzerland in the last round. He instead made a 17-minute cameo, extending his goalless streak to three games.
