Uruguay vs Portugal Soccer Betting Prediction and Analysis
In the opening round the World Cup, Portugal did well with a 3-2 victory over Ghana. Furthermore, during last week’s match, Cristiano Ronaldo became the first men’s player to score in five World Cups. This is because he was able to score a goal against Ghana from the penalty spot. Needless to say, he will be the center of attention as the all-time football leader with 118 international goals.
Despite being a team full of talent, Portugal did not do as well as they should have against Ghana. According to many sports betting experts, this match could have gone either way. Therefore, Joao Felix and Rafael Leao will have to double their efforts against Urugay.
According to sports handicappers, Portugal is not a favorite to win the 2022 World Cup. However, Portugal fans are eager to see the 37-year-old football captain succeed. Especially because 4 years ago, Portugal lost to 2-1 against Uruguay during the World Cup in Russia.
At the moment, Portugal is not under a lot of pressure as they currently lead the Group H pack. However, a victory would give them six points and guarantee their spot in the Round of 16.
On the other hand, Uruguay was a disappointment in their opening match with a 0-0 draw against South Korea. While Korean fans were happy with the results of last Thursday’s match, online sports betting sites were even happier. This is because the betting was mostly on Uruguay leaving online sportsbooks with a large sports profit margin.
Uruguay are two-time World Cup champions and have made it pass the group stage in the last three World Cup. Therefore, they have a lot of experience with Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani and have a superior defense.
