PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The second round in the quartet A will close up at Rostov Arena. Here the second-ranked Uruguay welcomes the last-ranked Saudi Arabia. Will the Sky and Blues continue their winning path?

The form book clearly favours La Celeste ahead of the first World Cup clash between the two countries. Oscar Tabarez's side may have made heavy weather of overcoming Egypt, but they showed that their competitive streak and winning mentality remain well intact. The Uruguayans can also call on superior credentials: the two-time world champions look well placed to progress to the Round of 16 for the third edition in a row.

Saudi Arabia had an unsuccessful comeback to the World Cup after many years of absence. The Green Falcons lost to Russia with a huge score 5:0, making this the second largest victory of any host nation at the FIFA World Cup. The record of the host's largest opening victory is still by Italy, beating the United States 7–1, in 1934. Saudi Arabia’s latest loss was conversely their fourth-straight defeat, all four of which saw them losing at half-time.

Possible Line-ups:
Uruguay: Fernando Muslera; Guillermo Varela, Jose Maria Gimenez, Diego Godin, Martin Caceres; Nahitan Nandez, Matias Vecino, Rodrigo Bentancur, Cristian Rodriguez; Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani

Saudi Arabia: Mohammed Alowais; Mohammed Alburayk, Osama Hawsawi, Ali Albulayhi, Yasser Alshahrani; Salem Aldawsari, Abdullah Otayf, Salman Alfaraj, Taiseer Aljassam, Yahia Alshehri; Fahad Almuwallad

The two sides have only ever met twice before with a 1-1 draw in 2014 and a 3-2 home win for the Saudis in 2002.

South Americans are evident favorites of the next game. Two biggest Uruguayan stars Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani did not demonstrate yet their attacking abilities and skills. We recognize an absolute weakness of Saudi Arabia’s defense that will provide the dangerous rival with a lot of scoring chances with a high follow-up. Thus, we predict a big Uruguay’s victory with an Asian handicap of (-2) and call to bet on this with an attractive coefficient of 1.80.
