Portugal and Austria were shocked in their opening encounters with Iceland and Hungary respectively. The former were expected to beat the minnows in their opening encounter, but were held to a draw much to the disappointment of Fernando Santos. The Portuguese will be keen to get back to winning ways and get their campaign back on track, as a loss to Austria could jeopardise their prospects of qualifying to the Round of 16.

The Austrians, on the other hand, suffered a shock 2-0 loss at the hands of Hungary. Marcel Koller's side were touted to be one of the dark horses of the tournament, but now have to get a result against Portugal to have a chance to progress to the next round.

Portugal are 3-2 down in the head-to-head record between the two teams and will look to set that right when they face each other in Paris on Saturday. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is set to make a record 128th appearance for Portugal against the Austrians.

What manager's say

Fernando Santos (Portugal): Austria are a very strong team. It's not for nothing that they're in the top ten in the FIFA rankings. Over the last four or five years they have developed and the personnel has mainly stayed the same. They're strong in attack and have many players with great qualities and technical ability. They are very different to Iceland.

Marcel Koller (Austria): We have to play differently to how we did in the defeat by Hungary. We've analysed it and tried to learn from it, but we need to be more clinical with our chances, play more calmly and be more compact defensively. It's the little things that decide games at this level, and you have to do these little things better than your opponents.
