Uruguay vs Portugal: who will make history in first ever clash?

01:14, 30 Jun 2018

This match will be played on 30th June on Uruguay qualified top of Group A collecting maximum points in the process.

They are yet to concede a goal in this tournament. The striking duo of Edison Cavani and Luis Suarez has improved and the two will be expected to cause problems to the aging defense of Portugal led by Pepe. Their strength is in the defensive duo of Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez.

Portugal qualified 2nd behind Spain in group B. Cruising past the group stage was not at all comfortable for the Euro 2016 champions. They struggled against a lowly ranked Iran side in their last group stage match. Their over reliance on Real Madrid Star Cristiano Ronaldo might be their main weakness coming to this match. Their defense will be the determinant factor in this match. Their ability to tame the duo of Cavani and Suarez will determine their team success in this match.

This is the first ever world cup meet between the two teams and it promises a lot of action.
