- Last five Matches: LWLWW;
Squad Form Description
The Portuguese National team will strive to make it two wins in two games when they go head-to-head with the former world champions. Fernando Santos' men survived a late-minute scare at the hands of the Black Stars of Ghana in an entertaining five-goal thriller. Cristiano Ronaldo's opener, which set a record as the first player to score in five different world cups, was canceled out by Ayew in the 73rd minute. Joao Felix and substitute Leao restored parity in quick successions before Osman Bukari's 89th-minute goal set up an interesting end to the game. The former European Champions would hope to avoid defeat at the hands of Uruguay to fend off unwanted pressure.
( 4 - 1 - 2 - 1- 2) D. Costa, J. Cancelo, R. Dias, D. Pereira, R. Guerreiro, R. Neves, B. Silva, Otavio, B Fernandes, C. Ronaldo, J. Felix.

- Last five Matches: DWLWD;
Squad Form Description
Uruguay disappointingly failed to find a way past the Taegeuk Warriors in their opening fixture of the FIFA World Cup. A goalless draw against South Korea, was nowhere near the prediction of many as a team that has the likes of Darwin Nunez, Luis Suarez, Federico Valverde, and Veteran Edinson Cavani are all familiar with the task of putting the ball behind the back of the net with ease. With the woodwork denying Diego Godin in the 43rd minute, it will be all to play for in their second game as a victory against Portugal will send a resounding message to the world about La Celeste's quest to add a third World Cup to their trophy cabinet.
( 4 - 3 - 3 ) S. Alvarez, M. Caceres, D. Godin, J.M.Gimenez, M. Olivera, F. Valverde, M. Vecino, R. Bentancur, F. Pellistri, L. Suarez, D. Nunez.Bet on Portugal vs Uruguay with Coinplay
Portugal vs Uruguay Back Under 2.5 at Coinplay
Yes, we know that Ronaldo is conversant with the business of goal-scoring. But at 37, his aging feet are not as prolific as they were at his peak. Portugal and Uruguay in our prediction will manage only a few goals as Diego Godin and Pepe on both sides command a lot of respect in their defensive tactics. An Under 2.5 Goal at 1.725 odds in the CoinPlay sportsbook is a positive risk to take home.
Portugal vs Uruguay Back Portugal Win or Draw

A Double Chance bet in favor of Uruguay which sits at 1.80 odds using the popular Bookmaker Bet365 is our second pick for the game.
