Denmark take on Portugal in Euro 2012 Group B this evening.

Denmark may well hand a start to Michael Silberauer to man-mark Cristiano Ronaldo, as they did during their win at home to Portugal during qualifying.

A change in formation is also on the cards, which could mean left-back Simon Poulsen is relegated to the bench.

Portugal coach Paolo Bento is boosted by the return to fitness of Ricardo Quaresma, while Hugo Almeida has recovered from illness and could also be involved.

Almeida may come in for Helder Postiga in attack, although young forward Nelson Oliveira is pushing for his first start.

Ronaldo has scored 32 goals for his country and a goal against the Danes would see him move ahead of Luis Figo in the all-time Portuguese leading goalscorers list.

Only Eusebio (41) and Pauleta (47) have scored more than the Real Madrid forward in a Portugal shirt.

Denmark have won three out of their last five meetings with Portugal, losing just once.

But Ronaldo will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net as Portugal have scored in all of their 12 previous meetings with Denmark.
