Uruguay vs Portugal Today’s Soccer Prediction
Uruguay will face Portugal next Saturday, June 30th, at 7:00 p.m., at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi in a game to be played in the last 16 of the World Championship in Russia. Uruguay reach this stage of the competition after beating Group A, who were part of host Russia, with only triumphs. The team oriented by Óscar Tabárez did not suffer a goal either, something that no other team to compete in the event managed. The South American team thus broke a record of more than 100 years, winning a group stage of a competition of selections with all possible points and without conceding goals. Portugal equalized in the last round of Group B with Iran to a goal, qualifying in second place of the group, with the same points of Spain, first classified. With this tie, the Portuguese formation sealed another record, being now the selection that there are more consecutive games is without losing in great competitions. The Quinas team have been unbeatable for 17 games, having recorded their last defeat at the 2014 World Cup on 16 June in a 4-0 defeat by Germany. The Portuguese team will add a win and a draw against Uruguay, but this will be the first meeting between both formations at official level. Who will lead the best?
Uruguay vs Portugal
Uruguay have not conceded a goal in this World Championship.
In two of Portugal’s three World Cup games there were less than 2.5 goals.
Uruguay have not conceded goals in nine of their last 12 games.
Portugal have not conceded goals in three of their last five games.
In one of the two clashes between the two there were more than 2.5 goals.
Uruguay makes defensive reliability one of their main weapons and has demonstrated that even during the tournament. In addition, it is the only team that has not yet scored goals in this edition of the World Championship. However, he faces a Portugal that does not know what it is to lose since the 2014 World Cup and that is always a hard bone to crack at any opponent. We believe in a game with less than 2.5 goals.
