Uruguay vs France Prediction & Betting tips
Even before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, France was for me one of two top favorites for the World Cup trophy. After the French did not do more in the preliminary round than they had to, they presented the expected performances for the first time in the second round against Argentina to the general public. With Uruguay on the Équipe Tricolore is on Friday but a team opposite, which will demand them everything. Finally, the Celeste has proved against the reigning European champions Portugal that they would give their final shirt for their coach as well as their nation. With much fight and unruly will Ronaldo and Co. were downed. However, this number may well have cost the Urus force, while the French obviously did not even have to give everything in the round of 16.
Therefore, it should also be no problem for Les Bleus, once again to gain a tooth and to put the best defensive of the tournament properly under pressure. Anyway, I’m convinced that the attack on Giroud, Griezmann and Youngstar Mbappe will book the semi-final ticket in the second 45 minutes at the latest, as Godin and Gimenez’s defensive bastions are increasingly on the gums. In the match Uruguay against France is a tip on the French, where in my opinion with the Uruguayans already the second South American team in the knockout round will fail, I recommend for potential bets.
The Celeste went unbeaten through the preliminary round, which is hardly surprising in the offered opponents. In the end, host Russia was still the biggest challenge. But always in order. At the beginning it was against Egypt and the Urus were consistently leading the way. Nevertheless, it took until the 89th minute before Giménez provided for the redemption and the 1-0 final score. Star striker Luis Suarez provided the early lead against Saudi Arabia. As a result, the South Americans managed the narrow lead against a largely harmless opponent. Against Russia it was in the third round match for the group victory. The conditions promised an exciting game and not a few experts saw Uruguay in the outsider role. However, this proved to be a fallacy, as the team of coach Oscar Tabárez was clearly the boss in the ring and the offensive duo Suarez and Cavani made with one hit for the decision. The Russians themselves contributed the third goal, so that the game ended with a 3-0 victory.
With three victories, the Urus did not pass the group victory. In terms of the possible opponents Spain and Portugal, it did not matter whether first or second. At the end it was against the reigning European champion, who was then the expected hard nut and should have cost a lot of strength. The European champion with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who was not able to do much against the strongest defense of the tournament, was visually superior. Especially Edinson Cavani caused a sensation. Not only was he omnipresent on the field, taking on defensive duties, he also made the decision. After having been superbly staged at half-time by Luis Suarez and unable to be asked twice, he had an answer to the first goal of the South Americans in 2018. Only seven minutes after the equalizer, Cavani spun the ball past the keeper into the right corner. The outstanding performances of Cavani but still demanded their toll, because shortly after the winning goal for 2-1 final score, he had injured from the square. A quarter-final appearance is anything but safe.
As mentioned earlier, the Equipe Tricolore had no big problems in the preliminary round and only did what had to be done. Even if they did not convince, it has to be assumed that the main task in the group phase was to manage with their own resources. So it is hardly surprising that in the opening match against Australia, it was only enough for a 2-1 victory. A look at the statistics shows that the French had with 13: 4 shots clear advantages and the interim compensation but rather came as a coincidence hit. Also against Peru was the chance increase in the Europeans, but in the end but by an early goal by young star Kylian Mbappé for clear conditions and the 1-0 final score. After the two first-round victories, the first knockout round was already booked, so against Denmark should draw a draw for the group victory. And that was exactly what it was all about. The French controlled the game and ended up with a goalless draw.
The plan to win the group did not quite work out in the end. Instead of a “light” runners-up, Les Bleus got involved with Argentina, who jumped into the top 16 teams at the last minute. The spectacular and varied game had to offer some twists, the advantage was always with a short exception, always with the France, who finally prevailed completely deserved 4: 3. A big part of the quarter-finals must be awarded to the rising star in the football heaven Kylian Mbappé. At first he could be stopped after an incredible sprint over almost 60 meters only with unfair means. Griekenmann converted the penalty due in the episode and thus ensured the first lead. In half two it was finally Mbappe time, because after the interim equalizer by Pavard the youngster made himself the most with two goals within four minutes for the decision. For the World Cup 2018 quarter-final Uruguay against France, the odds of a French victory implies a higher probability of entry than the odds of Uruguay’s success. Nevertheless, a tip on the 2018 World Cup favorites from France still offers attractive odds.
