The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Monday, Nov. 28. One of the more noteworthy matches of the day is a Group H clash between Portugal and Uruguay.

Portugal kicked off the World Cup with a 3-2 win over Ghana, giving the form a ton of momentum ahead of this matchup. Meanwhile, Uruguay could not get its offense going in its own matchup, resulting in a 0-0 draw with South Korea on Thursday.

Can Portugal keep up its momentum as the country looks to win the tournament for the first time? Or will Uruguay prove to be too much of a challenge by pulling off an upset in the process?

Although Ghana kept Portugal off the scoresheet in the first half, the latter erupted with three goals in the final 45 minutes. That’s the sort of offense that Uruguay rarely sees, proven by the team scoring just two goals in its last three games while being shut out in three of its last five.

Besides, Portugal is likely motivated to win this showdown after Uruguay won the first and only head-to-head matchup, 2-1, at the 2018 World Cup. With Portugal also having scored 11 goals in its last four matches and showing no signs of slowing down, expect the Portuguese to put the Uruguayans in their place.

Final Score Prediction: Portugal: 3 | Uruguay: 1

– Portugal defeated Ghana, 3-2, in its last 2022 World Cup match on Nov. 24, 2022.
– Uruguay played South Korea to a 0-0 draw in its last 2022 World Cup match on Nov. 22, 2022.
– Portugal is 3-0-2 (WDL) in its last five matches.
– Uruguay is 2-2-1 (WDL) in its last five matches.
– Uruguay defeated Portugal, 2-1, in their only head-to-head matchup on June 30, 2018.

Portugal is one of the top contenders in the tournament, proven by its +1200 odds (T-No. 6) to win the 2022 World Cup, as per FanDuel Sportsbook. While Uruguay will challenge at times, this is largely Portugal’s game to lose and I don’t think that the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Costa and Bruno Fernandes will accept defeat.

To get some solid value, take Portugal at -110 on the moneyline.

Bet: Portugal ML (-110)
