Portugal – Uruguay betting predictions & odds comparison 28.11.2022
Matchday 2 in the WC features the clash between Portugal and Uruguay at Lusail Iconic Stadium. Portugal will look to make it 2 wins in 2 when they face Uruguay. In what is likely his last World Cup, Ronaldo will be hoping to galvanize his side towards securing a better finish than 1966’s 3rd place berth
For Uruguay, they will need to scale this hurdle to protect their chances of clinching a last 16 place and prevent a group stage exit like it happened in 1962, 1974, and 2002.
Having seen the intrigues of the first round of games, we expect the second group matches to be more competitive. To help you make the most of what lies in there, we will be designing our tips with odds from Wazobet and Playabet.

Portugal got their campaign off to a winning start in their 3-2 victory over one of Africa’s representatives, the Black Stars of Ghana. In that tie, Ronaldo made history as the first man to score in 5 different World Cups having converted what appeared to be a soft penalty.
While they showed more quality to see off that victory, the fact that they let in 2 goals from the Black Stars will be a source of concern for the Portuguese. Hence, they will be looking to avoid any blip here in their quest to secure an early last 16 ticket.
The two time World Champions head into this tie desperate to score their first goal and earn a first win in this tournament. With a 0-0 against Korea in their opening game, Uruguay will be keen on getting a favorable result here to help them remain in contention for a last 16 place.
With Korea likely to get a result against Ghana in their next game, Uruguay are in a difficult position in Group H meaning they must grind out a positive result by any means necessary
Here, they will be counting on their 2-1 victory against Ronaldo and his colleagues last time out which led to Portugal’s last 16 exit at the last showpiece in Russia.
