Group H continues with Portugal hosting Uruguay at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in the late game on November 28th.
Portugal manager Fernando Santos was pleased to see his side get off to a winning start and he will be hoping to put all talk of Cristiano Ronaldo firmly behind him ahead of this second Group H contest. His side were pedestrian throughout the first half, however, they showed enough quality in the final third to take all three points. Nevertheless, they are unlikely to be gifted as many opportunities here.
Uruguay manager Diego Alonso has been forced to defend his team selections following his side’s goalless draw with South Korea. He has faced up to questions about his formation during the goalless draw which saw a disjointed front three struggle to make headway against a solid South Korean defence. Alonso pointed to the fact that his side hit the woodwork twice during the game, however, he may be forced to have a rethink ahead of this tough-looking tie.
Portugal have been priced up as the favourites with 10Bet and Fernando Santos’ side will be expected to collect three points here. Nevertheless, Uruguay are an extremely tough side to beat ad are likely to tempt many punters at 3/1.
