Given that both teams managed just five goals each in the group stage, a tight affair looks in store in Sochi as Portugal have largely relied on Cristiano Ronaldo and Uruguay seem content in grinding out narrow victories.
Both teams to score is available at 23/20 (2.15) with dabblebet, and would have landed in just two of the six games these sides have played in the World Cup so far.
Spain topped Group B after a dramatic injury time equaliser from Iago Aspas coupled with Iran’s last-minute leveller against Portugal, and now La Roja must navigate hosts Russia for a place in the quarter-finals.
Fernando Hierro’s outfit are just 8/13 (1.62) to move into the final eight of the tournament, with Russia 5/1 (6.0) to pull off a shock by claiming victory. The draw can be backed at 11/4 (3.75).
The hosts started the tournament in style with eight goals in their first two matches, however they were brought back down to earth with a 3-0 defeat to Uruguay in their last group game.
Over 2.5 goals, which would have landed in four of the six fixtures these sides have played at this tournament, is 23/20 (2.15), whilst both teams finding the net can be backed at the same price.
