Portugal vs Uruguay Betting Tips and Prediction
Uruguay to Win or Draw @ 1.83 (5/6)
Despite their start to the tournament, Uruguay shouldn’t be written off. They had a defensive masterclass against South Korea but couldn’t convert chances up front. Uruguay has not lost a competitive game this year, picking up four wins in five games. Only Brazil and Argentina accumulated more points than Uruguay in the South American World Cup qualifiers. The Sky Blues scored eight goals in its last five competitive games, conceding just one and keeping three clean sheets.
Portugal struggled to kill off the game against Ghana and was very lucky to finish with three points. Inaki Williams had the chance to level things up with seconds left but fluffed his lines. Portugal has lost two of its last four competitive games, keeping one clean sheet in that period. Uruguay won the last meeting against Portugal and is in good form to recreate that result. Backing the South Americans to avoid defeat is a good bet on Qatar 2022 WC.
Total Goals 1st Half – Under 1.5 @ 1.40 (2/5)
Both teams played out a goalless draw in the first 45 minutes of their previous game. Generally, most competitive games at the FIFA World Cup have ended with one goal or less in the first half. Uruguay is a very compact team at the back and will likely keep Portugal at bay for most of the game. For punters looking to bet on the goals market, a bet on one goal or less in the first half is a very valuable option and is also available on live football bets.
Cristiano Ronaldo Shots on Target – 2+ @ 1.80 (4/5)
Cristiano Ronaldo is the leading man for Portugal. He became the first player to score in five consecutive FIFA World Cups. Cristiano Ronaldo is averaging more than two shots on target per game this year. He had four shots against Ghana, with two on target. The odds for him to get 2+ shots on target in this game are very valuable. Backing him to register more than one shot on target is an excellent option in this game.
