Portugal can make it two wins out of two and almost certainly secure a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup knockout stage when they face a Uruguay side seeking their first victory in Group H.
Cristiano Ronaldo and his team-mates saw off Ghana 3-2 in a late thriller in their opening match of the tournament — and they face dangerous opponents again when they come up against the likes of Luis Suarez and Darwin Nunez on Monday in Qatar.
Uruguay began their campaign with a cagey 0-0 draw against South Korea, and even another stalemate would put the two-time champions in confident mood ahead of their decisive fixture against Ghana.

Portugal vs Uruguay lineups
With no new injuries, Portugal boss Fernando Santos could face a coin toss for his starting goalkeeper again after Porto’s Diogo Costa got the nod over long-serving No.1 Rui Patricio against Ghana.
Danilo Pereira started ahead of veteran defender Pepe, leaving Ronaldo as the sole cap centurion in Portugal’s starting 11. Same again?
Portugal probable (4-1-2-1-2, right to left): 22. Costa (GK) — 20. Cancelo, 4. Dias, 13. Pereira, 5. Guerreiro — 18. Neves — 8. Fernandes, 25. Otavio — 10. Bernardo Silva — 7. Ronaldo, 11. Joao Felix
Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo is likely to remain out for Uruguay as he continues his recovery from an adductor injury he suffered in mid-September.
Araujo had surgery in Finland on September 28 and Barca reportedly have an informal agreement with Uruguay that the defender will not play in the group stage.
Uruguay probable (4-3-3, right to left): 23. Rochet (GK) — 22. Caceres, 3. Godin, 2. Gimenez, 16. Olivera — 15. Valverde, 5. Vecino, 6. Bentancur — 8. Pellestri, 9. Suarez, 11. Nunez.
Portugal vs Uruguay odds
Portugal’s pedigree is part of the reason why they are odds-on with the bookmakers to win this game, although gamblers fancying Uruguay’s prospects may have noted that the Selecao have struggled against stronger opposition in recent months, losing to Switzerland and Spain.
Despite a strikeforce that has often been deadly at club level, Uruguay have failed to score in three of their last five matches — a fact that may appeal to those eyeing a low-goals bet.
