Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Today’s Soccer Prediction


With a late goal in the 90th minute, Uruguay was rewarded with a decent performance in their first match at the 2018 World Cup, with Atletico Madrid defender after numerous missed chances by star striker Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani Jose Gimenez, who took a heart just before the final whistle and balanced a free kick with a perfect overview into the corner after he had previously won the duel against 3 (!) Egyptian defenders. Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy, who had kept his team in the game for a long time with strong saves, had no chance in this situation and had to watch his team at the last minute for the fruits of their brave performance. The more bitter for Egypt is the fact that the foul that led to the fatal free kick, in our view, was quite unnecessary and could easily be avoided, since in this scene no immediate danger from the ball leading “Uru” was. In the end, however, Uruguay’s victory was not undeserved despite Egypt’s strong defensive performance, as coach Oscar Tabarez’s team was clearly superior to the field over 90 minutes, with a number of high-profile opportunities. Especially Suarez and Cavani failed again and again either the splendid parades of El-Shenawy or the pole, which came to the aid of the Egyptians in the 88th minute after a Cavani free-kick (El-Shenawy would have been beaten in this situation already). According to our prediction, Uruguay are more than ever clear favorites to win in Group A after beating Egypt, and will face a few problems with outsiders Saudi Arabia alone due to a few steps stronger squad. Since Uruguay have decent odds, we’ll recommend placing them as a bet tip, even though they will bet more after the 0-5 debut of Saudi Arabia in the opening game against Russia and taking Uruguay’s top offensive into account as 2.5 goals in the game could have their charm.

Saudi Arabia

Although Saudi Arabia started as a blatant outsider in the 2018 World Cup, such a debacle against the hitherto weak form of Russia in this form was not expected. The team of coach Juan Antonio Pizzi went down unimpressed and uninspired in the opening match, although the level of the performance shown was shockingly weak. Innumerable bad passes and misunderstandings characterized the game of Saudi Arabia, which according to our analysis sometimes made the host team appear stronger than it actually was. It should also be noted that the course of the game after a quick goal for Russia was anything but auspicious for Saudi Arabia. Nonetheless, if you do not want to go down against group favorite Uruguay again, you’ll need a huge boost in performance, as we predict the “Urus” in our forecast a lot more than the Russian team. According to our prediction, there is little hope for the team from Saudi Arabia, since the squad is simply too weak and even a coach fox like Pizzi with the existing pool of players is limited in his options. Since the “green hawks” in our view, not much else than to put everything on the stabilization of the defensive, we expect in our forecast an extremely walled team from Saudi Arabia, which will be constricted by Uruguay over 90 minutes and careful, not to run into another debacle. According to our prognosis, hope only exists if Uruguay does not score goals and gets nervous as the game progresses, with Coach Tabarez’s team already showing in the first game that they have the necessary nerve power to make late decisions. Due to this forecast and the interesting odds, we recommend as a bet tip a placement on victory Uruguay, as we do not see much in our prediction, which speaks against this assumption. Due to the unequal balance of power, a bet on a bet on more than 2.5 goals throughout the game would also be mentioned, as Uruguay have two absolute world-class winners in their ranks with Suarez and Cavani, and the team from South America is one step stronger than Saudi Arabia Upcoming opponent Russia is to be evaluated.
