Uruguay vs Portugal Prediction
Uruguay vs Portugal Score Prediction
This won’t be a fixture that produces goals, given Uruguay’s miserly defensive record and Portugal’s lack of conviction when going forward. A 1-0 win for Uruguay is priced at 7.50 by Bet365.
Portugal are all too reliant on Ronaldo to produce goals up front and of the five goals they have scored at the World Cup, four have been scored by the Real Madrid striker. Under 1.5 Goals can be backed at 2,30 from Crownbet.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
No team has managed to breach the Uruguayan defence at the World Cup and that looks set to continue here as Diego Godin marshals his troops to another clean sheet. Both teams not to score is 1.75 with Ladbrokes.
Why Should I Bet on Uruguay vs Portugal?
This round of 16 tie wasn’t decided until the final whistle blew on all the Group B clashes. Late goals from Morocco, then Spain and eventually Iran meant that Portugal, who were seconds away from playing hosts Russia, will now have the unenviable task of travelling to Sochi to play Uruguay. Both of these teams are good enough to realistically win the World Cup which illustrates just how big a game this is. Betstar has both teams at 2.70 to win but, in the end, it should be Uruguay who knocks out an ageing Portuguese outfit.
Uruguay vs Portugal Preview
Uruguay have come through Group A with distinction and have won every game they have played in. Impressively Uruguay haven’t conceded a goal yet but have scored five in the process. Portugal were arguably in a tougher group and only recorded one win, which was against Morocco after having drawn to Spain and Iran. There’s only so far Ronaldo can take this Portuguese team on his own and beating a well-drilled and cohesive Uruguayan unit looks one step too far.
- Uruguay have kept six clean sheets in a row
- Portugal have only kept three clean sheets in their last eight games
- Edinson Cavani to score anytime is 2.40 with William Hill
- Uruguay have scored eight goals in their last four games
