Godin, Uruguay look to stop Ronaldo

The man who has marshaled the best resistance On the planet Container so far will savor the assignment of endeavoring to stop his old enemy Cristiano Ronaldo when Uruguay and Portugal meet in Sochi on Saturday.

The Madrid derby goes to the shores of the Dark Ocean in the last 16 with Uruguayan chief Diego Godin, of Atletico, and his club colleague Jose Maria Gimenez coming up against Genuine and Portugal's five-time Ballon d'Or champ.

It will be an entrancing fight at the Fisht Stadium with Ronaldo, at 33, making the most of his best World Container yet Uruguay the main side to get through the gathering stage in Russia without yielding an objective.

Godin is a specialist at keeping clean sheets, as the pioneer of an Atletico barrier that is the most considerable in the European club diversion they kept 34 in all rivalries last season-and of a Uruguay side that has not yielded an objective in 2018 of every six amusements.

Ronaldo, however, has just scored four times at this World Container, including a cap trap on his last visit here when Portugal drew 3-3 with Spain. That implies he has 85 global objectives, more than some other male European player ever.

Over the most recent two years, he has scored two cap traps for Genuine against Godin's Atletico, having additionally risen successful in two Madrid derby Champions Alliance finals.

More in their locker

Be that as it may, the rough and overcome Godin, who required reconstructive dental medical procedure in the wake of having three teeth punched out in an ethereal test with Valencia's goalkeeper recently, has prevailing with regards to gagging Ronaldo on bounty different events at club level returning very nearly 10 years.

"Godín is a star. He shields, orders, scores objectives, wins titles, and does not miss a diversion," said Diego Maradona as of late.

On Saturday, Gimenez-who scored Uruguay's late champ against Egypt-is set to rejoin Godin in focal barrier in the wake of missing the 3-0 triumph over Russia because of damage.

Ronaldo, then, will hope to get back among the objectives having had a punishment spared in Portugal's 1-1 draw with Iran. That, and the VAR-granted late spot-kick for the Iranians, sentenced the safeguarding European champions to this tie as opposed to a gathering with the hosts in Moscow.

Portugal without a doubt would have favored that, for while Uruguay keep on producing intense focus backs, they are in no way, shape or form totally dependent on them.

This is an agree with phenomenal, Italian-based midfielders in Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Torreira and Matias Vecino. Also, in advance they gloat two of the best objective scorers of their age in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.


Suarez may do not have a similar sharpness of old, however he has still scored twice in Russia. One progressively and he will measure up to 1950 World Glass champ Oscar Miguez's Uruguayan record of eight objectives at the competition.


"They are an ordinary South American side," said Portugal mentor Fernando Santos.

"It's not simply in this World Glass that they have not been yielding objectives. It has been similar to that for the entire of 2018. Oscar Tabarez is the longest-serving global chief. That implies he has an extremely solid association with his players."

These two nations with a joined populace of 13.5 million have for some time been overachievers on the global scene-the most recent decade under Tabarez has seen two-time previous victors Uruguay achieve one World Glass semi-last and win one Copa America, while Portugal triumphed at Euro 2016.

What's more, the Uruguayans hold their adversaries in similarly high respect, cognizant that Ronaldo is bolstered by more youthful abilities like Bernardo Silva and Goncalo Guedes.
