    RECORD BREAKER

    Cristiano Ronaldo made his 181st appearance for Portugal the other night against Qatar.

    On his achievement, he said: "Records are always outstanding, but those who fall at the service of our national team take on a special dimension.

    "181 games with the jersey of the corners are 181 reasons to be proud of!

    "And scoring against 46 different countries is something I never thought was possible.

    "Let's not stop here, let's fight for more! Force Portugal!"

    RON TOP

    Cristiano Ronaldo has scored three goals for Portugal in World Cup qualifying.

    The Portugal captain has, however, only managed to register 12 shots on target.

    And has only completed seven dribbles in four games.

    FORM

    Portugal are yet to be beaten in their last five games, whereas Luxembourg have lost more than they've won.

    HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Portugal and Luxembourg have met 18 times.

    And Portugal have convincingly won 16 of those meetings against tonight's visitors.

    Luxembourg have shocked Portugal once, but it came back in 1961, where they won 4-2.

    And the two sides have drawn once.

    GOOD EVENING

    And welcome to the live blog for the World Cup qualifying game between Portugal vs Luxembourg.

    Portugal welcome Luxembourg to the Estádio Algarve knowing a win takes them back to the top of Group A.

    The former European champions find themselves a point behind Serbia with three qualifying games to go.

    Top spot secures an automatic place in next year's tournament. 
    Whereas second place goes into a playoff with three spots up for grabs. 

    Portugal come into tonight's game in some fine form having won their last four games.

    Luxembourg's last win came against Azerbaijan at the start of September. 

    In terms of team news,  Rafa Silva, Domingos Duarte and Raphael Guerreiro and Diogo Jota are all doubts for tonight's game.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is set to captain Portugal, and he'll be hoping to extend his international goals record. 

    Pepe, Ruben Dias, Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva are all expected to come into the line-up.

    For Luxembourg, duo Christopher Martins and Gerson Rodrigues are expected to return.

    Huddersfield Town's Danel Sinani will want to keep his place up front for the visitors.

    The teamsheets are due to be released shortly, so don't go anywhere!
