Portugal vs Uruguay - Familiar foes lock horns in search of Group H supremacy

November 27, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The Portuguese side could make the next round if they can find a way to beat La Celeste. Follow this match with our detailed guide.

The last game of Matchday 2 in the FIFA World Cup will feature the two teams that are named as the most talented in Group H. Portugal and Uruguay will battle to claim the top spot of the group en route to the next round, in a game that will offer the Portuguese side a chance to redeem themselves.

The Selecao coached by Fernando Santos makes it to this game after claiming a narrow 3-2 win over Ghana, which saw Cristiano Ronaldo scoring in a fifth different FIFA World Cup. This time, a win for the European side would secure them a spot in the next round regardless of what happens in the other group game, and it would also confirm them as a force to be reckoned with in this tournament despite some dubious moments in the first match and in their road to the World Cup overall.

Their rivals on Monday will be Uruguay, a team that makes it to this clash with one point, product of their draw against South Korea on Matchday 1. La Celeste is still looking for their first goal of the competition, and that fact will be key in their road to the next round, as a team with strikers such as Cavani, Darwin Núñez and Luis Suárez cannot afford to keep dropping points due to their lack of accuracy in front of goal.

Hours before this match, Korea and Ghana will have played their respective match in this group, which might give these teams a better idea on what to expect and what to do to keep their options to make the next round alive. Let us have a closer look at some of the key points that may shift the tide in favor of any of these teams in this crucial clash.

Portugal vs Uruguay - Team news

The Portuguese side showed quite a bit of muscle during their first game of the competition, as they did not have to rely on Cristiano Ronaldo's skills to make it past Ghana. Players such as Joao Felix and Rafael Leao (who came off the bench to score the key goal) will be some of the players to keep an eye on for the Selecao. Added to them, Bernardo Silva and playmaker Bruno Fernandes will try to show the world why they are considered as two of the most talented players in the world and why they can be considered as team leaders if CR7 is not on the pitch.

On the other hand, Uruguay will need to figure out how to score goals before it is too late. Coach Diego Alonso has a lot of talent at his disposal, but he needs to find the proper lineup to damage the always tough Portuguese defense. It will be interesting to see if Edinson Cavani is given a starting nod this time, following his appearance off the bench against South Korea. But even if he comes in, all eyes will be placed on Suárez and Núñez, who failed to make their presence felt in the game against the Asian side and who are set to start for the South Americans. The team's only absence for this game will be that or Ronald Araújo, who is still recovering from a muscular injury he picked up prior to the start of the competition.
