Uruguay vs Russia Prediction & Betting tips
Forecast for the match of the last day of Group A, which faces Uruguay and Russia. To be green you have to win Uruguay, if the match ends in a draw the bet would be nil.
Group A, after the first two matches of each team is like this:
-Russia 6pts, dif +7
-Uruguay 6pts, dif +2
-Egypt 0pts, dif -3
-Saudi Arabia 0pts, dif -6
Russia goes first of group, and it is winning in the goal average to Uruguay, that is to say, that if the party finished tied, Russia would happen like first of group. The round of eighths will be against the qualifiers of Group B, Spain and Portugal. The first position of Group B is still not clear, since Spain and Portugal are tied in everything. If they tie to points, the first classified will be decided by the +/- of goals, where they are also tied. Spain faces Morocco and Portugal faces Iran.
The most likely is that Spain is the first group, because I doubt that Portugal score more goals to Iran than Spain to Morocco.
Uruguay and Russia want the first place, as this would avoid Spain in the round of 16. To do this, as I said, Uruguay must win this match against Russia. Uruguay has been seen as a very strong defensively, as they have not conceded any goal, and have only conceded 5 shots on goal in these 2 group matches. On the other hand, in attack they have been seen very inaccurate, and in this last match with few occasions. They have won both games by set pieces.
Russia has won their two matches with force, 5-0 to Saudi Arabia and 3-1 to Egypt. These two results for me are a bit misleading, although a 5-0 is hardly deceptive. Russia is a team that gives possession to the opposing team to come out against, as they are a team that retreats well back. Against Saudi Arabia they had 38% possession and before Egypt 49%. The game against Egypt was a rare game, in which Egypt played well, threw enough but had little success, which did Russia.
The odds of this match are conditioned by the results of these 4 group matches, but Uruguay seems to me to be superior to Russia on both sides of the field, so I think that given the need to be the first group, Uruguay will win. I think a high fee with the draw is invalid.
