Uruguay vs Portugal World Cup 2018 round of 16: When is it, where is it, team news, schedule, draw
It certainly will not be one of the prettiest or most eye-catching matches of the tournament, but Uruguay against Portugal will be one of the more intriguing tactical battles. Both sides like to sit tight and keep hold onto leads earned by their talented strikers.
Uruguay's procession to qualification saw them beat Egypt, Saudi Arabia and host Russia without breaking a sweat. The defence have been impenetrable and Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani are getting warmed up at the tip of the team.
Portgual made much harder work of their group after an enthralling 3-3 draw against Spain in their opening match. A win against Morocco set them on their way and Fernando Santos' side stumbled over the line with a 1-1 draw against Iran, which could have been a much different result but for VAR.
