Paris Saint Germain forward Edison Cavani will start despite having a poor tournament till now, having scored his first goal in his last match after displaying pale form in the first two. A lot will ride on Cavani’s pairing with Barcelona frontman Luis Suarez up-front as the two will pose constant threat towards the opposition defence.

Portugal-

There are no injury or booking concerns for coach Fernando Santos as a strong Portugal XI is set to take the field against Uruguay. Ronaldo will start in the high-pressure game with Guedes, who is set to be recalled in the starting XI after making way for Andre Silva in the last group match against Iran.
