Uruguay vs Portugal kick-off, team news, head-to-head at the World Cup

June 29, 2018 By Ali M.
Here is a comprehensive compilation of TV schedules and listings for Portugal's round of 16 World Cup clash with Uruguay.

The World Cup knockout stage is set to kick off on Saturday with Uruguay vs Portugal being one of two round of 16 games being played on Saturday. With the group stage having ended, fans now eagerly await what should be an enthralling game.

The Euro 2016 champion failed to win Group B and thus earned a date with the South American powerhouse instead of Russia. Fernando Santos' men showed, however, that they can hold their own against a heavyweight when they sealed an impressive 3-3 draw with Spain in their opening game.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the man who carried his nation in that tie, scoring a spectacular hat-trick to earn a point. He then scored the winning goal in Portugal's following game against Morocco but missed a penalty in a nervous 1-1 draw with Iran. 

As a result, he will be dying to take out his frustrations on La Celeste. Uruguay, though, has been a tough side to break down.

They are one of only two three teams that boast a 100 percent record – the other two being Croatia and Belgium. Furthermore, Oscar Tabarez's men are yet to concede a single goal en route to the knockout stage.

In front, Uruguay is yet to exhibit their best attacking display. They beat Russia 3-0 to improve on their first two narrow 1-0 victories over Egypt and Saudi Arabia, but Edinson Cavani is yet to impress in this competition.

Defense is where they shine best, as Diego Godin and Co. do not play around in the back. They will now go up against the goalscoring machine that is Cristiano.

Team news

Portugal has a few worries ahead of Saturday's clash. The likes of Raphael Guerreiro, Gelson Martins, and William Carvalho all sat out training due to minor muscle injuries.

As for Uruguay, their biggest concern is the fitness of Jose Gimenez. The defender suffered a thigh injury and thus sat out the victory over Russia but has since returned to training and is in-line to face Portugal.

Match facts

  • These two sides have never met in the World Cup before.
  • However, they have crossed paths in an international friendly which ended in a 3-0 victory for Portugal in 1966.
  • Cristiano is looking to end his wait for a knockout stage goal at the World Cup having failed to score in 424 minutes.
  • Suarez (7) is aiming to tie Oscar Miguez's record for most World Cup goals scored by an Uruguayan (8).
