Uruguay – Russia : Preview & Prediction
Uruguay and Russia, already qualified for the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup, will compete for their third and final group match. This is the “final” of Group A, which will be decisive in determining the final ranking of the two teams. Russia occupies the top spot in Group A ahead of this meeting. A draw is enough to host the world to ensure the first place in the group, to meet in the second round of the second group B. The Uruguayans are forced to win if they want to finish first in group.
Russia and Uruguay were full after their first 2 pool matches with a record of 2 wins in as many games.
Offensively, Russia started its world in the best conditions, with a total of 8 goals against Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Both teams have faced each other once in their history. It was during a friendly match in March 2012, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Despite his flawless World Cup debut with 2 wins in 2 games, Uruguay beat Egypt and Saudi Arabia on the smallest of the scores, without presenting a flamboyant level of play.
It is a good Group A final that awaits us with this Uruguay – Russia which looks promising. On the one hand, the Russians started their world in the best of ways, giving their best at every meeting, unlike Uruguay which was content with the minimum union against two nations that were largely within their reach in order to hope for more goals. Faced with Russians who have shown so far all their desire in this world at home, we do not see the Uruguayans win against them, who will have their audience behind them during this meeting. We are therefore predicting a victory for Russia or a draw between the two teams.
