The second game of the Knockout Stage will face Uruguay and Portugal. Both teams have a solid defense and a well structured playing style, and yes… some of the greatest attacking players in world football too.
Uruguay were outstanding in the group stage, winning all their three games and conceding not a single goal. They weren’t really dominant vs Egypt and Saudi Arabia, winning by the minimum advantage, but proved how dangerous they can be in their 3-0 win over Russia.
After a promising start vs Spain, with a stellar Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal struggled to make it to the KO Stages as a late penalty conceded against Iran and some controversial decisions made the European champions suffer until the very last minute.
The odds are really even, and nobody wants to pick a clear favorite for the victory. This promises to be a great clash and it could go any side.
