Uruguay v Saudi Arabia betting preview
Uruguay will be looking to get back to scoring waysUruguay struggled to break through a well-organized Egypt throughout the game but they did wrap up the three points as Jose Gimenez powered a header in the 90th minute. Luis Suarez looked a shadow of the striker that tore apart teams almost single-handedly with Barcelona and Liverpool in recent years. La Celeste have avoided defeat in eight of their previous nine games and have won their last four games without conceding. These two sides actually shared a 1-1 draw when they last met in a friendly three years ago.
Oscar Tabarez may be tempted to give Cristian Rodriguez or Cesar Sanchez a start following encouraging substitute appearances. The likes of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez will lead the line with Giorgian De Arrascaeta tucked behind the attacking duo. The likes of Matias Vecino, Rodrigo Betancr and Nahitan Nandez will start in midfield while the four man backline will be formed by Martin Caceres, Diego Godin, Josè Jimenes and Guillermo Varela.
Saudi Arabia were awful in their opening gameSaudi Arabia were demolished by host nation Russia on the opening evening of the tournament, losing 5-0 in the end. They allowed the Russians more goals in 90 minutes than they had scored in five previous World Cup matches. It was Saudi Arabia’s fourth consecutive defeat, and they have failed to win each of their last 11 World Cup games. Going forward, they will be looking to claim a major upset against the group favourites. They played several good warm up games ahead of this tournament, narrowly losing to Italy and Germany (both 2-1).
The biggest worry for Juan Antonio Pizzi is the form of Mohammad Al-Sahlaw. He could be replaced here, by either Muhannad Assiri or Fahad Al-Muwallad upfront. In the 4-1-4-1 starting system Abdullah Otayf will be the midfield pivot with the likes of Dawsari, Farj, Jassam and Shehri behind the lone striker. Al-Burayk, Omar Hawsawi, Osama Hawsawi and Al-Shahrani are the likely starting defenders.
