Group H is, without a doubt, the most crucial stage of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 right now. Portugal is at the top of the table with 3 points, which came after clinching a 3-2 victory over Ghana. As a result of a scoreless draw with South Korea, Uruguay is currently in third place.
November 29, 2022, brings what can be said as a turning point for both, with Uruguay on the major side of losing everything.

Portugal looks to take home the victory and a spot in the Round of 16. Its last fixture dramatically ended with a 3-2 win over Ghana. Christiano Ronaldo registered the opener through a penalty in the 65th minute. Following that, nothing happened as usual, with only the intensity rising every second.
Four more goals were scored in the final twenty-four minutes to end the match. Andre Ayew equalized the score in the 73rd minute before Felix responded with the game-winning goal. Diogo Costa’s giveaway to Bukari and Williams resulted in a narrower victory margin and a high goal differential.
Portugal has either won or lost its last 6 matches, with a record of 4 wins and 2 losses. It would have been better for the register if it had been called in for a draw instead of a loss.
Christiano Ronaldo became the first to score in five FIFA World Cups. With the pumped-up rush in his body, there is nothing stopping him from taking a hit without penalty. Felix and Leao can continue to assist in the formation of a 4-3-3.
Will Uruguay bounce back from the goalless draw? Vote yes right away.
The draw at Education City Stadium prompted the participation of four top players. Godin, Cavani, Caceres, and Suarez are these players. The Fantastic Four, or the power of four, has high hopes for maintaining their prospects of climbing the ladder.
Anything other than a substantial loss should be acceptable. Uruguay won both the 1930 and 1950 FIFA World Cups. Nothing major has happened since then, with the exception of Russia. Four years ago, Uruguay was able to qualify for the quarterfinals. Prior to it, the team finished fourth in 2010 and advanced to the Round of 16 in 2014.
On Tuesday, Portugal and Uruguay will meet for the fourth time. The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar can only be successful for one team. Depending on the outcome of the remaining games against Ghana and South Korea, special conditions will prevail.
Several FIFA betting sites predict a 48% win for Portugal, a 23% win for Uruguay, and a 29% tie.
Uruguay can perhaps revise their 4-3-3 formation for a more effective attack. Portugal may potentially want to change a few positions in order to abandon the 4-3-3 formation.
