Portugal Team News

Portugal manage to beat Ghana in the first round and to earn three points in a game where they had a 3-1 lead but in the end, they can easily drop two points thank their goalkeeper Diego Carlos.

Bruno Fernandes played an incredible game and made two assists and we saw that Fernando Santos has terrific options in attack in Joao Felix, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Rafael Leao, who came from the bench and scored Portugal’s third goal.

Portugal is on the run of two consecutive wins and they had won seven games in the last 10. In the last 10 games, Portugal failed to score in only two games and manage to keep five clean sheets.

For Portugal, it was crucial to start the group phase with a win because this group H is very strong with four quality teams. They have a chance to qualify for the knockout phase with a win against Uruguay and If South Korea and Ghana drew their game Portugal will win the group.

This team is a very good attacking side, but we saw that in the defense they can have problems.

Uruguay Team News

Uruguay is a very experienced squad that knows how to go throw the group stage and get to the knockout phase. The last time they didn’t qualify for the knockout stage was in the World Cup in 2002.

In the first round, they played one very tough but open game against South Korea where both teams has chances to win the game.

Uruguay’s attack was the biggest problem in that game because Darwin Nunez played probably one of his worst games in the last couple of years and Luis Suarez also wasn’t on his level. Federico Valverde and Diego Godin were the most dangerous players in the Uruguay squad.

Uruguay is now under huge pressure because they must win something from this game against Portugal or they will be in a very difficult situation in the last round.

Uruguay come to this World Cup in the run of four consecutive wins in the competitive games and with this draw against South Korea, they are five games without a defeat and had four clean sheets. If we count friendly games Uruguay has eight clean sheets in the last 10 games. Amazing.

H2H

They played in the knockout stage of the previous World Cup in Russia and Uruguay beat Portugal 2-1.

Team News and Injuries

Portugal: Otavio is questionable.

Uruguay: Ronald Araujo is still injured.

Portugal vs. Uruguay Prediction

First of all, we expect a much better performance from Uruguay. If that happens this game will be a quality one, for sure. Both teams want to escape defeat here and go into the last round with much better chances to go through the knockout phase.

Because of that much quality in both attacks we will go with a bet on goals here.
