Betting Tip: @ Uruguay to win @ 9/5 with bet365

After playing in second gear for opening World Cup matches against Egypt and Saudi Arabia, the Uruguay car really opened up against Russia and a 3-0 triumph saw La Celeste land top spot in Group A.

It had appeared as though Spain were going to fluff their lines against Morocco which would have been nasty for the Uruguayans, although they claimed a 2-2 draw and it’s Portugal who are the opponents on Saturday night.

Many have commented that these two sides are quite similar, with players within the Uruguayan and Portuguese teams capable of roughing it up and trying to con the referee. Players like Luis Suarez, Diego Godin, Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It’s an attractive fixture and we’re keen to get with La Celeste beating the European champions. Quite simply, they are the better team and play like Atletico Madrid, which is hardly a surprise when Godin and Jose Gimenez are in the engine room.

They have Suarez and Cavani in attack and the midfield composition now appears to be correct, with Diego Bentancur having impressed in this position and we also liked Diego Laxalt in the previous match against Russia.

Yes, Portugal have Cristiano Ronaldo who is capable of magic and the Real Madrid star will try and spearhead a victory although he can’t do it on his own.

Portugal conceded three goals in their opener against Spain and rode their luck against Morocco, with Uruguay keen to get the initiative and then close out the game.
