Uruguay won all three of their group matches, beating hosts Russian Federation 3-0 in their last outing, and are the only team yet to concede a goal at the tournament.

"It's not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals - it has been like that for the whole of 2018".

"There's not a single player who can contain him".

This will be a busy evening for the referee, not least with Uruguay's Atletico Madrid centre-halves Diego Godin and Jose Jimenez up against Portugal's Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Portugal pulled off a World Cup classic in their opener against Spain and dispatched an inspired Morocco thanks to their skipper, but were then shaken up by Iranian resilience, all the while embroiled in controversial decisions from the VAR.




In the Round of 16, the striker will face a rival who also has great offensive potential, but who, in this case, is split between two front men: Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, who are the second best pairing in the World Cup (24) after Neymar and Coutinho (28). Tabarez had devised his successful tactical system at a time when Uruguay did not boast of quality central midfielders, but the emergence of the likes of Vecino and Bentancur has comforted the veteran manager.

"We are going to have to work collectively. He defends, commands, scores goals, wins titles, and does not miss a game", said Diego Maradona recently.

All five of Uruguay's goals at the 2018 World Cup have been scored from set-pieces (3 from corners, 1 from direct free-kick and 1 from indirect free-kick). Meanwhile, three of Portugal's last four goals have come from outside the box. The Real Madrid star already has warm memories of playing in Sochi, scoring a hat-trick in his sides opening game.

"We'll be focused. But nine of those Portuguese players on that pitch are European Champions". The crunch knockout stage could be the last hurrah for Portugal's golden generation while for Uruguay, this World Cup can be the reward of a decade-long tutelage. They are very good at the back, have a couple of excellent forwards and they go from there. "That doesn't cross our minds, but if it's boring and we win.", said Uruguay's veteran coach Oscar Washington Tabarez on Friday, looking ever more frail at the age of 71.

Away from the first game against Spain, Portugal haven't been great. I've told them they need to be calm.
