If you are looking for an entertaining soccer match with a little bit of dirt and grit mixed in with some street fighting; then Uruguay-Portugal might be up your alley. I expect things will get pretty nasty in this one especially as the game comes to a close.
Uruguay took care of business in their group stage and they looked sharp and deadly finishing off Russia 3-0 to cap off an undefeated run in group play.
Portugal had a chance to win their group with Spain’s shocking draw against Morocco, but Portugal’s defense let them down in extra time and alas they gave it up and have to face off against Uruguay in the round of 16.
As mentioned above, Uruguay took care of business in group play going 3-0 and saving their best for last against Russia beating them three-nil.
Both of Uruguay’s star attackers, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, scored against Russia and both will be looking to carry that over into the next stage.
Surprisingly enough, this was Cavani’s first goal in this World Cup, but despite that Uruguay managed to win all three of their matches. That shows just how solid this team is from top to bottom.
For Suarez, this was his second goal in the World Cup and he’ll be looking to make it three in a row against Portugal. And given the styles of play and just how poor of a team Portugal is defensively, it wouldn’t a shock to see both Suarez and Cavani get on the board again.
Portugal had a chance to win their group stage with Spain struggling to a draw, but Portugal’s defense let them down in extra time and with that they now have to face Uruguay.
It really is an unfortunate situation for Portugal as if they win their game against Iran they would have won their stage and went to face Russia in the round of 16.
Playing Uruguay versus Russia is a huge difference. Not only did their defense let them down, but Ronaldo missed a penalty kick that would have given Portugal a 2-0 lead and they would have won despite giving up a goal in the later stages of the game.
Portugal will be up against it as not only is Uruguay strong offensively, but they are strong defensively. Uruguay hasn’t allowed a goal yet in their three World Cup games.
Free Uruguay vs. Portugal World Cup Round Of 16 Prediction:
For a who-will-advance-perspective, I believe Uruguay will be moving onto the next stage. From a betting perspective, I do think there is value in Uruguay winning after 90+ minutes of action.
4* Round Of 16 Free World Cup Betting Pick: Uruguay +180
A draw is very much in play, but given that we get Uruguay at +180 and given that Portugal has a very shaky defensive unit; I believe that Uruguay can get the win inside 90 minutes.
I don’t expect Uruguay to completely shut down Ronaldo, but we did see Iran do a fantastic job in containing Ronaldo. The only difference is that Uruguay has an offense that can score and a Portugal defense that is more than suspect.
