Portugal vs Uruguay
Portugal vs Uruguay Betting Odds & Predictions
All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo as this will likely be his last World Cup outing. Can the Portuguese superstar lead his team to a win and dodge Brazil in the knockout stage? Let’s not forget that Uruguay beat Portugal during the 2018 World Cup in Russian, so the Portuguese will be seeking redemption in Qatar. Portugal vs Uruguay is a Group H qualifying match that will be played at Lusail Stadium on Monday November 28, 14.00 US EST, 19.00 GMT UK and 22.00 local time.
Will this be CR7's Farewell?
Cristiano Ronaldo’s last World Cup?
Cristiano Ronaldo will turn 38 years old on February 5, 2023. Will the all-time leading scorer in men’s international football retire after this World Cup, at least from international football? The jury is still out, but it would be hard to see CR7 play another World Cup at 41-42 years old. If he scores in Qatar, he would be the very first player to do so in five World Cups.
The Portuguese are Favorites to Win this Group
Considered one of the easier groups in the tournament, Group H consists of Ghana, South Korea, Portugal and Uruguay. Portugal won the Euro 2016, beating France by a narrow margin (1-0), the Seleção‘s road to Qatar was not an easy one. Will head coach Fernando Santos find a way to break through with his “older” team?
What are Uruguay’s Chances against Portugal?
Uruguay won the World Cup twice, but the last wins were… 72 and 92 years ago (1930 and 1950)! But they did beat Portugal in Russia in 2018 before losing to 2018 World Cup winners France in the quarterfinals.
CXSports‘ prediction for Portugal vs Uruguay: a 1-1 draw between the two sides.
