Uruguay vs Portugal Match Preview

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.
