A spot in the quarterfinals at the 2018 World Cup will be up for grabs when Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal take on Luis Suarez's Uruguay in the last 16.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.

Ronaldo, who has scored four of Portugal’s five goals in the Russia finals, will come up against a Diego Godin-led defence that has not conceded a goal so far in the competition.
 
The Sky Blues will also be high on confidence after topping Group A with a maximum of nine points.
 
Uruguay narrowly beat Egypt 1-0 in their first match and followed it up with another 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia, before dispatching hosts Russia 3-0 in their final group match.
 
Meanwhile, the European champions finished with five points as runners-up in Group B. where they drew 3-3 Spain and beat Morocco 1-0 in their opening two games.
 
Selecao's last group game, against Iran, was very tense and they managed to get a 1-1 draw to scrape through to the round of 16.

Here's how they line up:

Uruguay: 
Muslera; Cáceres, Giménez, Godín, Laxalt; Torreira, Nández, Vecino, Bentancur; L.Suárez, Cavani.

Portugal: Rui Patrício; Ricardo Pereira, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro; Carvalho, Adrien, B. Silva, João Mário; Guedes, Ronaldo.
