Uruguay vs Portugal Preview:

Both Uruguay and Portugal are underdogs in this game but this game would mark the former world champions as the favourite because technically they are the better team as they have won all three of their group matches and has picked Portugal as the easier choice. Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani are finally in the form as they fired against Russia in their last game and booked the group topper position in their group. However, Portugal is not to be discarded so quickly because they have Cristiano Ronaldo and despite football being a team game, he individually took his team in here and would also want to carry his team further in the world cup. This is going to be the last world cup Cristiano Ronaldo would be playing so it is expected that he would want his team to be on the top of all.
