Uruguay are yet to concede a single goal at the 2018 World Cup, facing just six shots on target in three games - the last South American team not to concede in their first four matches of a World Cup tournament were Brazil in 1986.
Suarez was frustrated during the opening game against Egypt but appears to be coming to a boil just at the right time - he has managed to avoid any further World Cup controversies so far as well, following 2010's handball and 2014's biting.
Portugal winger Gelson Martins and left-back Raphael Guerreiro are in contention to play after they returned to full training.
Uruguay and Portugal will come to blows for a place in the quarter-finals of Russian Federation 2018 on Saturday night and more cynical antics are expected.
"When it comes to the rivalry with Ronaldo, we all do our best for our team to achieve the best result".
"Cristiano Ronaldo is the leader of their team".
In the last two years, he has scored two hat-tricks for Real against Godin's Atletico, having also emerged victorious in two Madrid derby Champions League finals. They have not faced each other since July 1972, when they drew 1-1 at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium.
Portugal opened their World Cup campaign in Sochi with a thrilling 3-3 draw against Spain, and midfielder Adrien Silva said his team have what it takes to score against a Uruguay rear-guard that has not been breached this year.
Bali shuts airport after volcanic eruption
Airlines are now scrambling to clear the backlog of thousands of passengers disrupted by the eruption of Mount Agung on Bali. The authorities have also reduced its alert status from higher to lower level in the month of February 2018.
All five of Uruguay's goals at the 2018 World Cup have been scored from set-pieces (three from corners, one from a direct free-kick and one from an indirect free-kick).
Ronaldo has been in devastating form in Russian Federation, scoring four goals to help European champions and Group B runners-up Portugal reach the knockout rounds.
Oscar Tabarez said there is not one player who can contain Cristiano Ronaldo as the Uruguay boss highlighted the need for a team effort to stop the Portugal captain in the World Cup last 16. That, and the VAR-awarded late spot-kick for the Iranians, condemned the defending European champions to this tie rather than a meeting with the hosts in Moscow.
Fernando Santos is lacking another defensive-midfield force akin to Carvalho in his squad, although Joao Moutinho could return alongside Adrien Silva in the engine room after starting on the bench against Russian Federation. He's reached the knockout stages on each previous occasion: Euro 2012 quarter-finals & World Cup 2014 round of 16 with Greece; Euro 2016 winners and at the very least World Cup 2018 round of 16 with Portugal.
Uruguay, by contrast seems to be easing its way through the gears after an unblemished group stage that suggests the best is yet to come.
