Location: Fisht Olympic Stadium (Sochi)
The 2018 World Cup last 16 continues on Saturday evening with another mammoth clash, as in-form Uruguay face off with Portugal, who are looking to add to their Euro 2016 crown from two years ago.
Looking to make his nation proud and continue his rampant run of form from the group stages, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the main man for Portugal in attack. The Real Madrid ace is leading the way for the race for the prestigious Golden Boot and could boost his chances of another personal award with further scoring success here in the knockout stages.
In what is an evenly matched last 16 encounter, Uruguay can be backed at 9/5 with bet365 to prevail, while the Navigators are 2/1 to come out on top and secure a spot in the quarter-finals.

Head to head
The two nations have only faced each other on two occasions previously, with Portugal emerging victorious in one clash and the other ending all level. Uruguay will have to earn their first fixture win in order to progress in Russia.
