Portugal vs Uruguay preview

Cristiano Ronaldo and co. survived a late scare from Ghana to claim a 2-3 victory in their tournament opener. After all the controversy of recent weeks, Ronaldo, of course, got himself on the scoresheet for his country, netting twice before Rafel Leao scored what turned out to be the winner.

Uruguay were the better side in their game against South Korea, but lacked the firepower, despite having the likes of Luis Suarez, Darwin Nunez and Edinson Cavani upfront. Rodrigo Bentancour put in a good midfield performance, but they had to settle for a 0-0 draw.

This is only the second time these sides have met at a World Cup. In their first encounter, back in 2018, Uruguay knocked out Portugal at the last 16 stage, winning 2-1. They have also won 4 of their last 5 World Cup meetings with European opposition, while their opponents have won just once the last 9 times they have played teams from South America in football’s biggest competition.

A win would likely see Portugal through to the next round, although, depending on other results, they might need something from their final group match against South Korea. Uruguay really need a win to maintain any chance of progressing. Who can get the vital three points? Find out by watching the Portugal vs Uruguay live stream.
