Portugal - Uruguay prediction

2022-11-10 Author: Dmitry Chygrinsky

The World Cup is able to surprise and give new emotions. This World Cup will be the last for Cristiano Ronaldo. In the second round, he will face Suarez and Cavani, who are also on their way to their last major tournament. We expect a lot of goals from veterans!

Portugal Uruguay forecast

Leaders in the Portuguese national team

The winners of Euro 2016 go to Qatar with a squad similar to Uruguay, where there is a place for bright veterans (Pepe, Ronaldo) and young stars (Felix, Sanches, Leao) with established leaders of their teams (Diash, Fernandes). Santos has only one problem - how to fit into the game Ronaldo, who is having the worst season in history. Jota’s injuries can affect the attack, Felix’s position changer is not so effective. However, Portugal are going to the 2022 World Cup as one of the favorites, the squad has been played for a long time, the coach knows how to use the strengths of the players, Patricio is reliable in the frame.

Leaders in the national team of Uruguay

Diego Alonso has a great squad, quite balanced in midfield and in attack, with veterans and young stars of world football. The eternal and reliable Muslera will play at the gate, in defense, apart from the “mattress” Jimenez and the legend Godin, there is no one to single out. In here in the center of the field, Valverde will plow for three. The attacking trio of Suarez-Cavani is diluted by the future star of the Premier League and Liverpool Nunez, the coach will definitely not place all three on the field. It is unlikely that he will decide to play with Portugal in 2 strikers, Nunez can play on the flank.

Portugal-Uruguay head-to-head and past matches

As part of the Fifa World Cup, the teams met at the last World Cup in Russia. In the first stage of the playoffs, the Uruguayans turned out to be stronger with a score of 2:1. Pepe answered Cavani’s double. In the League of Nations, the Portuguese performed with mixed success: they lost only to Spain and Switzerland, returning the favor to the Swiss and beating the Czech Republic twice. Ronaldo’s team entered the 2022 World Cup only through the joints, defeating Turkey and North Macedonia. Uruguay won 4 consecutive victories in the South American selection and entered the World Cup in Qatar from 3rd place, in recent friendly matches they lost to Iran and beat Canada.
