Who will win Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia – Prediction & Odds, World Cup 2018
Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia World Cup Prediction 19th June 2018 – 7.00 p.m
(Full time: 1:0 – goals: Suarez 23′)
Uruguay will be confident of collecting another three points as they head into their easiest fixture of Group A. The South Americans didn’t click too well as they found a late winner out of nowhere against Egypt in their opening game. Things should be far more routine and easier for them as they take on Saudi Arabia on Wednesday. Saudi Arabia looked extremely poor as they were hammered by Russia in their opening group stage fixture.

Who will win Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia?
The winner of this fixture really doesn’t look to be in too much doubt. Saudi Arabia were so poor in their opening fixture against Russia, that even while Uruguay looked a shadow of themselves in edging their way past Egypt, the South Americans should be comfortable in this one. It would be a pretty big upset if Uruguay failed to get three points in this one.
Deadly Uruguay attack to flourish
Uruguay strike duo Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez never really got themselves going in their opener against Egypt but they should be licking their lips in this one. Suarez is at 1/2 odds at bet365 in the anytime goalscorer market and is the 11/5 favourite in the first goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.). There has to be a lot better from Uruguay to come as they did toil and failed to get into top gear against Egypt. But the South Americans are strong and they are in good form at the moment and in our Uruguay v Saudi Arabia predictions we can only see this being pretty easy for them. They know how to defend with Diego Godin leading the line and Uruguay should get their second clean sheet of the tournament. You have 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.) on Uruguay to win to nil in this one. They will be in search of their fifth straight win in their current form and Brazil are the only ones to beat them in their last ten games. In the bet365 correct score market at 5/1 odds we are going to push things out in our Uruguay v Saudi Arabia prediction to 3-0 at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.) for the South Americans.
Poor Saudi Arabia defence to struggle
Saudi Arabia’s defence was just about as poor as you will ever see from a side taking part in a World Cup as they crumbled to a 5-0 loss against Russia. They were so bad that they made the hosts look good, and they are not. So there is likely to be more trouble ahead for Saudi Arabia in this one as they try and keep Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez quiet, who make up a much stronger attacking unit than anything Russia can put together. So Saudi Arabia will be in for another testing time at the back and over 2.5 goals bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.) largely based on the Saudi Arabia defence, does look pretty appealing. This is probably going to be a long 90 minutes for Saudi Arabia who have produced just the one goal in their last seven World Cup matches now. So they aren’t likely to break the back line of the South Americans. Saudi Arabia are currently on a four-match losing streak, having conceded at least two goals in each of those losses.
Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Prediction
This should be a routine victory for Uruguay being produced in midweek. They were nowhere near their best against Egypt but they will have a much easier time in getting their front players going in this one as Saudis defence looked awful. Our Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia prediction leans towards a Uruguay/Uruguay half time/ full-time bet.Place your World Cup Bet at Bet365!
