Uruguay vs Russia Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Uruguay vs. Russia is fantastic opportunity to test our knowledge/luck, put bets and earn money. These nations played only once altogether. It was friendly match that finished in draw 1:1. Both teams secured their places in second phase and there is no need to push too much.
Uruguay is struggling to score. In first two games they scored only two times in total but they also recorded two victories and now from second place they are waiting to see who the next opponent will be. In last round Uruguay played against Saudi Arabia. After we saw what Russians did, we expected to see at least half as much goals. First serious opportunity came in twenty-third minute when Uruguay had corner kick. Luis Suarez was in right place at the right time and that’s 1:0. In second half of the match South American team had one more colossal chance to score but the ball went slightly over the bar. Uruguay scores rarely but on the other hand they kept their sheet clean in last five matches. That defense will be on true test in match against Russians who are the most efficient team in championship. Uruguay will definitively try to remain undefeated against host so we may expect slow paced game.
Russia already secured their attendance in knock out phase after glorious victory over Egypt. Both teams started match somewhat cautiously. Russia was afraid of Mohamed Salah while The Pharaohs had in mind disaster that faced Saudi Arabia in first round. After goalless draw, Russians increased pressure and in forty-seventh minute Uruguayans scored own goal 1:0. In fifty-ninth minute, Denis Cheryshev doubled advantage 2:0. Three minutes later Artem Dzyba sets 3:0. Until the end of the match we have seen one more goal and it was scored by Egypt 3:1. Now with six points Russia sit firmly in first place and without fear they are ready to meet Uruguay. Both teams qualified and there is only question. Who is going to be first in group? That is not so important because they will most likely face either Spain or Portugal. Russia has the best goal difference and they are playing in front of their fans so we expect them to attack because in game after that one they will probably be forced to defend.
