Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 19th June 2018
Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia – 2018 World Cup : Uruguay and Saudi Arabia face off on the 2nd round of the group A of the 2018 World Cup.
The match will be played on June 20th at 16:00 at the Rostov Arena in Rostov.
These are two teams that had different debuts on the 2018 World Cup.
While Uruguay has beaten Egypt with a last-minute goal, Saudi Arabia was massacred against Russia by 5-0.
The question of this match is if Saudi Arabia is as weak as they’ve shown on the 5-0 loss against Russia or if they are more similar to the positive impression
they’ve left when they’ve played against Italy and Germany, losing both by 2-1, inclusively playing well against the Germans.
I’ll go more on that direction. I still think that the match against Russia was very unusual.
Nobody expected such a scoreline and a lot of people expected a very balanced match, which didn’t end up happening.
We will probably have a Saudi Arabia having a much more defensive approach than they had against Russia.
On that match, Saudi Arabia believed that they could win the match and they ended up giving more space than they will give against the group favourites and against a team with an attack like this.
Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Therefore, Uruguay will need to fight once again against a well-posted team on defence.
But that will allow the Uruguayans to get more ball possession. It’s hard to find value lines here because Uruguay’s odds have dropped even further after the battering that Saudi Arabia suffered.
But besides the spectacular attacking duo, the Uruguayan defence is very strong.
Therefore, and due to the poor attack that Arabia has shown against the Russians, I believe they won’t be able to score against the Uruguayans here.
