Uruguay vs Portugal Match Preview 

Portugal had a significantly more entangled day in the last round confronting the verge of a gathering stage leave when Iran's Mehdi Taremi sent the ball into the side net at the passing of the stoppage time in Saransk. They had prospects of winning the gathering and getting the hosts Russia as more good partners at this phase of the opposition, yet they wound up battling for the negligible survival in the wake of yielding the stoppage-time punishment from Olympiacos' striker Karim Ansarifard. 

Cristiano Ronaldo had a night he'll wish to overlook at the earliest opportunity since he missed an enormous opportunity to twofold the Portuguese lead from the punishment spot part of the way through the second half. He later in got fortunate not to have been sent off for hitting Iran's inside back with his arm, accidentally, however, as VAR judged the yellow card had been sufficient of discipline for the Real Madrid star. 

In such night, it was Ricardo Quaresma who roused Selecao das Quinas sending a delightful shot with outside of his foot into the upper right corner of Beiranvand's goal  to push Portugal ahead from the get-go in the second half against Iran. Besiktas' winger, who is making the most of his first historically speaking World Cup with the national group, at 34 years old, in this way likely earned a place in the beginning line-up for the tremendous tie with the South American heavyweights in the last 16 round. 

Uruguay vs Portugal Head-to-head 

Strangely, this will be the primary ever straight on issue amongst Uruguay and Portugal. 

Uruguay vs Portugal Predictions 

Portugal do have one of world's best players in their positions, however we are anxious they depend a lot on Cristiano Ronaldo's motivation. 

The Portuguese demonstrated rather messy showcases against both Morocco and Iran and there is genuinely very little about their amusement that really guarantees a prospect of a profound keep running in Russia. 

They will be up against the stone strong guarded line of Uruguay's, while their maturing safeguard should manage world-class predators Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez who have both as of now been on the score sheet so far in the competition. 

Oscar Tabarez's safeguard is in fact exceptionally intense to separate as La Celeste did not surrender a solitary goal in last six matches, incorporating three here in Russia. 

We would thus be able to barely overlook the 2.50 chances offered for Uruguay to keep a perfect sheet on the day. On the other hand, La Celeste are well worth support to win the match at the 2.80 chances.
