Team News
Portugal have not reported any injury concerns from their clash with Ghana, but head coach Santos could make a change from the side that took to the field last time out.

Indeed, the European nation had greater control when William Carvalho was introduced early in the second period, and the midfielder could now take the place of Otavio in the starting side.

Rafael Leao scored off the bench against Ghana but is likely to be among the substitutes again, with Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix set to support Ronaldo in the final third of the field.

Santos has the option of bringing in Diogo Dalot and moving Joao Cancelo across to left-back, but Raphael Guerreiro is expected to keep his spot for the team's second match of the competition.
Portugal possible starting lineup:
Costa; Cancelo, Dias, Danilo, Guerreiro; Bernardo, Neves, Carvalho; Fernandes, Ronaldo, Felix

As for Uruguay, Ronald Araujo's fitness has been a controversial topic, with the centre-back included in the squad despite undergoing thigh surgery at the end of September.

The Barcelona defender is again expected to miss out here, so Caceres should join Godin, Jose Gimenez and Mathias Olivera at the back, with Matias Vecino featuring alongside Valverde and Rodrigo Bentancur in midfield.

Cavani is the obvious option to come into the XI, but Suarez is again expected to get the nod from the start, with Darwin Nunez and Facundo Pellistri playing in the wide areas.

Suarez did find it difficult against South Korea, though, so the 35-year-old's fitness will need to be assessed before it is decided whether he will again be in the XI for this contest.
Uruguay possible starting lineup:
Pochet; Caceres, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera; Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino; Pellistri, Suarez, Nunez
Prediction: Portugal 2-1 Uruguay
