Four years after the dramatic duel in the round of 16, Portugal and Uruguay are playing each other again at the World Cup, this time in the group stage of the competition.
Portugal coach Fernando Santos will be looking to fight back against their relegation rivals from the previous World Cup. Still, his side did not look impressive in their tournament opener against Ghana, despite a dressing room packed with big stars.
Today, it seems that Portugal is hostage to Cristiano Ronaldo, who has to play a central role in the national team, even though he did not play much this season. At 37, he has the physical power he had in previous major tournaments.

Portugal vs. Uruguay preview
There are some great names in the Portugal team, such as Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes, but the game does not seem to be arranged properly, which is why this national team struggled so much in qualifying for the World Cup, which it only reached through the playoffs.
Young João Felix in this championship seems to be getting more space than in previous competitions, despite his form at Atletico, which is not great. João Cancelo is not making a difference on his right side so far. However, he is one of the best full-backs in the world. Interestingly, Santos opted for Diogo Costa between the posts, and Ruben Dias is in the center of the defense, together with Danilo Pereira, which sounds great on paper. However, the Portuguese still managed to concede two goals against Ghana.
Uruguay, led by coach Diego Alonso, has an exciting combination of young talent and proven veterans who are expected to make it to the tournament’s knockout stages again.
The two-time world champions are fresh from a draw against South Korea but believe they can play with anyone and will aim for a win on Monday in a clash where Real midfielder Federico Valverde will look to shine in 2022 and is brimming with confidence. Darwin Núñez is another hit player who will try to make a difference on the pitch, and there are also Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez in the offensive, as old foxes who can always decide the game with their moves.
Portugal vs. Uruguay predictions
Although Portugal is among the narrow favorites to win the world title, they did not live up to it on the pitch against Ghana, as the team does not seem to be appropriately structured and is showing many weaknesses now. We believe that Uruguay is better organized and can play a solid 90 minutes in this match and avoid defeat to keep their hopes of progressing to the final round alive.
Who is the referee
After Brazil vs. Serbia match, Iran’s Faghani is set by FIFA to referee Portugal vs. Uruguay match.
