Uruguay vs. Portugal :- Prediction
Uruguay Team News
Uruguay changed their system to play Russia and was rewarded with a more attacking performance. Whether they stick with the same 4-4-2 diamond against Portugal remains to be seen, however. Jose Maria Gimenez missed the match, with Sebastian Coates replacing him at center-back, but he is back in training after his thigh injury and could return.
Uruguay Key Players
Luis Suarez – Has scored in each of the last two matches to bounce back from a below-par performance in the opening game
Edinson Cavani – After 40 goals in 47 games for PSG last season, he scored the final goal against Russia to break his duck at this year’s World Cup
Diego Godin – Uruguay’s hugely experienced captain has led the back four to six consecutive clean sheets and must now keep Cristiano Ronaldo under wraps.

Uruguay Team Form
Uruguay has now won all six matches they have played in 2018 and are yet to concede a goal. They won two from two at the China Cup in March, with Edinson Cavani scoring against both the Czech Republic and Wales to lead Uruguay to victory, before a 3-0 win against Uzbekistan in their only World Cup warm-up match. At the World Cup they won all three group stage matches to Group A with nine points.
