Uruguay vs France Odds
There is very rarely much to choose between these sides and with plenty at stake, neither side is likely to show their hand too early in this contest. Both teams should get on the scoresheet but Uruguay will be tougher to breach than Argentina and a 1-1 draw is a definite possibility in this tie. It is available at 5.92 with Intertops.
Uruguay will face France in Nizhny Novgorod for a place in the final four. The South American side will be confident of progressing, having seen off Portugal in the previous round. They were the better side across the 90 minutes but conceded their first goal of the tournament with Pepe’s heading finally breaking their resistance. They’ve looked efficient so far but this will be a real test of their credentials. France were 4-3 winners against Argentina in a topsy-turvy match and looked unreliable at the back. Four of the last five meetings between these sides have ended all square and there isn’t much to choose between the pair once again. France have explosive pace in the final third but defensive vulnerabilities and may need extra time and potentially penalties to settle this one. A draw can be backed at 3.25 with 888Sport.
Uruguay vs France Preview
Edison Cavani netted both goals for Uruguay in their round of 16 clash with Portugal but the PSG striker left the pitch with a hamstring injury and Oscar Tabarez has admitted that he is worried about the forward’s condition ahead of this tie. They conceded their first goal of the tournament but they were the better side across the 90 minutes and deserved to book their place in the final eight. They have stifled the opposition at this tournament so far but they are coming up against a higher-class of opponent in this game and will have to be at their best to prevent Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe from getting on the scoresheet.
France finally came to life in this tournament with a thoroughly entertaining 90 minute performance against Argentina. Didier Deschamp’s side were excellent going forward but they were sloppy at the back and they can’t afford to show the same generosity to this opposition. They tried to control the game but weren’t always able to and Paul Pogba’s performances at the tournament have been underwhelming so far. They crashed out at this stage in 2014 and will be looking to go one step further this time around.
Both Teams to Score Prediction
France have only failed to score in one of their 2018 World Cup games so far but their goalless draw against Denmark is best forgotten. They made changes for that game but with a full-strength side fielded in this tie, they should be able to find the back of the net. Uruguay don’t concede many goals and they have shipped just a single goal so far. Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt were all kept off the scoresheet but stopping Mbappe, Giroud and Griezmann is a huge ask and they are liable to concede here. Both Teams to Score?
