Uruguay will look to extend their winning run when they play Portugal this weekend, however Cristiano Ronaldo will have other ideas as the current European Champions look to secure a passage to the last eight. In our match predictions below you’ll find an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction with reasons for all the bets advised.


Uruguay vs Portugal Predictions

The first selection we’re looking at is a team to win and we’re siding with Uruguay. In the betting odds, the bookies are struggling to split the two sides and a case could be made for both. However, Betway’s odds of 15/8 for Uruguay to win look the best bet here. They’ve won their last six matches without conceding a goal, including maximum points in Group A. They started slowly and needed a late winner against Egypt, before only managing to score once against Saudi Arabia. The 3-0 win against hosts Russia was tainted by a sending off for the hosts, but Suarez and Cavani got goals at the perfect time. Cristiano Ronaldo is capable of winning any match on his own, but his team mates really do need to step up to the plate here. They were held to a controversial 1-1 draw against Iran last time out and had Ronaldo to thank for the 1-0 win over Morocco and 3-3 draw with Spain. Uruguay are better defensively than Iran or Morocco so they could keep Ronaldo quiet. The first of our Uruguay vs Portugal predictions for the World Cup last 16 match is a Uruguay win, the odds are 15/8 with Betway.

Uruguay vs Portugal Anytime Goalscorer Tip

The aforementioned Cristiano Ronaldo is the unsurprising favourite in the anytime goalscorer odds for this match but we’re looking elsewhere for today’s anytime goalscorer tip. Luis Suarez has scored in his last two matches and the odds of 2/1 with 888Sport seem generous for him to score against Portugal. Ronaldo is 11/8 favourite in this market but given that we’re betting on a Uruguay victory, Suarez to score anytime is the second of our Uruguay vs Portugal predictions on Saturday.

Correct Score Predictions

We’ve already predicted a Uruguay victory here and we think they might just win this last 16 tie a shade comfortably. They haven’t conceded a goal in their last six matches and the La Liga experience of their center backs will prove vital against Ronaldo. The last of our Uruguay vs Portugal predictions is for Uruguay to win the match 2-0. The best odds for this correct score bet are 12/1 at bet365 and that’s our bookmaker of choice for betting on the World Cup.
