Uruguay vs Russia World Cup Prediction 25th June 2018 – 3.00 p.m

This is a showdown for top spot in Group A and the strange situation is that they don’t know what they are playing for. Spain and Portugal will be playing for top spot in Group B later on that day and it is only then that these two will know who they will be facing in the round of sixteen. Either way, there is going to be no easy game ahead so will they both take the opportunity to rest some key players instead of as finishing places don’t seem that important here?

Who will win Uruguay vs Russia?

It is a bit of a tough call as to who will win this. Uruguay are the better of the two sides but they really haven’t clicked into top gear yet. As for Russia, they have performed well in two games but it’s hard to know where they are at because of two really easy games that they have played. As the fishing spots in Group A may not actually matter inside the top two, they could both take it easy here.

Uruguay yet to catch fire

La Celeste really haven’t found their groove yet at the tournament, not in terms of looking a major attacking force. They have the potential for goals there of course with Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani but Cavani is yet to get off the mark and Suarez has one. Suarez incidentally is the 6/4 bet365 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.) and that appeals in our Uruguay v Russia predictions. It is back to back 1-0 wins that Uruguay have produced so far and that’s not been a great return from them against relatively weak opposition in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. But the positive is, is that they know they can play better and they are clearly understanding how to win ugly. It will likely come together for them at some point and they would have to win this game now because of goal difference, to actually finish as group winners. Another Uruguay 1-0 is at 6/1 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.). Despite not having played well at the World Cup yet, they are still a side in form as La Celeste are on a five-match winning streak and each of those victories were with a clean sheet. They have such a good defence and Diego Godin has been one of the defensive stars of the tournament so far.

Will hosts struggle against La Celeste

Russia have not had a serious test yet. They went into the World Cup with no form behind them, but to their credit, they thumped a poor Saudi Arabia side and then make the most of things against Egypt who were pretty much carrying an unfit Mo Salah. So that is eight goals scored and none against for them, giving them a huge goal difference advantage over Uruguay. That means Russia only need to come up with a draw in this one to win the group. So they could use this to rotate their squad a little bit and regardless, they are facing a good defence here so under 2.5 goals is at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.) and were are throwing that out there as one of our top of options for Uruguay v Russia predictions. There is usually a player who comes from nowhere to produce a good goal scoring run at the World Cup and that has been Denis Cheryshev with a three-goal haul so far. Still, Artem Dzyuba who was excellent against Egypt looks the better option for Russia in the anytime goalscorer market. This will be really interesting to see how the hosts cope against a very good, tough, competitive defensive side because they have had things easy so far.

Uruguay vs Russia Prediction

Russia have yet to have any kind of real test so far and they will find the going tougher against Uruguay without a question. But then Uruguay has not impressed so far and their frontline hasn’t got itself going yet. Uruguay are so tough at the back that we can’t see them losing and we are going with a narrow win for the South Americans to give Russia reality check.
