Free tips World Cup 2018 Preview: Uruguay v Portugal Betting Tip
Extra-time looking a distinct possibility between Uruguay and Portugal
Uruguay meet Portugal in the last 16 at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi on Saturday evening in what looks to be the most difficult game to call in the round.
Uruguay v Portugal Betting Tip
Match Result (90-minutes) – Draw @ 2/1 (3.00) with BetVictor
Both teams qualified with relative ease for the knock-out stage, with Uruguay winning all three of their group games without conceding a goal and Portugal seemingly set for top spot above Spain in their group until a late penalty presented Iran with an equalizer. There was still time for Iran to create another opportunity that, had it been taken, would have seen them qualify at Portugal’s expense.
It has to be said that Uruguay had the easier group, but they also look a better balanced team than Portugal, with a rock solid defensive pairing in Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez and a front pairing of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani providing top quality at either end of the pitch.
Portugal of course are hugely reliant on the talents of a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, who has four goals to his name from Portugal’s five in total.

Goals are very likely to be at a premium in this game, as Coral’s offer of just 4/9 on the ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ option would suggest. It’s also a football match that could well necessitate extra-time and quite possibly a penalty shoot out, so the 2/1 with BetVictor on the draw at 90-minutes looks a reasonable World Cup bet.
