Uruguay v Saudi Arabia Prediction & Betting Tips – World Cup 201820th June 2018 / lee
Uruguay v Saudi Arabia World Cup 2018, 20th June – 4.00 p.m
(Full time: 1:0 – goals: Suarez 23′)
Uruguay didn’t look on top of their game as they edged their way past Egypt in their opener at the tournament. They will be hoping to get a bit more fluency into their game and get their attack going as they face up to Saudi Arabia in the second round of matches. Saudi Arabia looked extremely poor in their heavy loss against Russia and there could be more trouble ahead for them.

Uruguay v Saudi Arabia Betting Tips
Uruguay delivered a win in their opening fixture against Egypt but it was only by the skin of their teeth as they converted a late free kick. Surprisingly the South Americans looked a bit flat and uninspired in that opener, but at least the positive is that there should be better to come. Luis Suarez in particular looked to having a big off day but he still looks value at 1/2 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.) to get on the scoresheet in this one because the Saudi Arabia defence looks poor. Uruguay have not conceded in any of their last four games played and they should not come under too much pressure from their opponents here you would think. Uruguay to win to nil looks a pretty rock solid option in Uruguay v Saudi Arabia betting tips and that is at 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.). The South Americans are on a four-match winning streak at the moment and have lost just one of their last ten games played.
Their opening nerves will have gone and they can settle down and produce in this one. In the bet365 correct score market a Uruguay 2-0 option is at 5/1 odds but we are going to push things a little further for our betting tips and look at the 3-0 option for 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.). If Russia can hammer Saudi Arabia, Uruguay should have no trouble getting three goals on board. Another three-point haul would move the South Americans through to the next round of competition with a game to spare and really you can’t say anything negative about that. This was always going to be their easiest game and there is little threat of an upset.
Saudi Arabia were just bad in their opener against Russia. They have plenty of the ball to be fair but the lack of quality on this stage was a bit shocking. They ultimately lost 5-0 and their defence was just non-existent at times and it made the Russians look good. Now they will be facing an even better attack in Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez so there should be further big troubles ahead for them. Saudi Arabia have only scored in one for their last seven games played at the World Cup and it’s hard to see them producing anything of note here. They are on a four-match losing streak at the moment going into this one and they conceded at least two goals in each of those losses. The wooden spoon looks on for them but we still like the look of over 2.5 goals at bet365 for the game at 3/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:06 p.m.) as the Saudi defence will help it get to that.
Uruguay v Saudi Arabia Head to Head
There have been two meetings between these two and they produced a 3-2 win for Saudi Arabia in their first ever meeting back in 2002. They most recently met in 2014 when there was a 1-1 draw played out. Both of those were friendly fixtures.
Who will win – Uruguay v Saudi Arabia Predictions
This should be something of a canter for the South Americans. They didn’t click in their first game but should have an easier time of things against very poor opposition. There should be a very comfortable clean sheet victory for Uruguay here.
