Portugal v Uruguay Bet Builder Tips & Free Bets


Although Portugal made life far harder than it needed to be, they still managed to pick up three points against Ghana.

With Fernando Santos’ men already having a two-point advantage at the top of Group H, they can secure progress to the Round of 16 with a win over Uruguay.

10/1 Portugal v Uruguay Bet Builder - 7pm Kick Off

Dan likes three selections which combine for a 10/1 pick

Portugal v Uruguay Match Preview

Who else could it have possibly been but Cristiano Ronaldo? Although there was a sizeable element of contention when it came to Thursday’s penalty award against Ghana, the current free agent still held his nerve when it mattered.

Nerve that saw the former Manchester United star break the deadlock against the Black Stars and although he and his Portuguese teammates would eventually toil to a 3-2 win, it was still a performance worthy of three Group H points.

Two more than what Uruguay currently have in their World Cup bank account and although they had chances to get the better of South Korea in their opener, they spurned all clear opportunities that came their way.

Evergreen defender Diego Godin hit the post in the first half, veteran striker Luis Suarez lacked bite in attack. It was not the worst performance from the two-time winners, but it does feel like two points dropped within the confines of the group.

Especially now that Diego Alonso’s men now must go up against Portugal and if they were to lose their second appearance at this year’s finals, hopes of progressing to the Round of 16 would have only diminished further.

Which means Darwin Nunez will be tasked with stepping up to the plate and with the Liverpool forward now spearheading the next generation of Uruguayan superstars, he will look to feed off a supply line that largely comes from Tottenham’s Rodrigo Bentancaur.

While the likes of Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva will arguably have greater impetus to win Monday’s encounter and this impetus is steeped in hoping to avoid Brazil in their first knockout fixture.

On the assumption that the tournament favourites win Group H, the last thing that Portugal want is to meet their linguistic cousins and the only way to avoid such a meeting, is by taking care of business in their own mini league.

When assessing their performance against Ghana, there is no doubt that they had enough weaponry in attack, and this should see them over the line against Uruguay. However, they certainly look susceptible at the back and this weakness will have certainly been identified.

With that in mind, our latest bet builder is now up for grabs, and it looks like this:

  • Portugal to win
  • Rafael Leao to score anytime
  • Both teams to score

For my latest bet builder offering, the spotlight is being shown on Portugal’s Rafael Leao and after getting off the scoring mark against Ghana, I am backing the AC Milan forward to do the same against Uruguay.

A goal that eventually helps the 2016 European Champions to a win and knockout football to go with it. With that said, I do not think the Portuguese defence will have a night off and by also backing both teams to score, this current construction comes in at odds of 10/1.
