The first 2018 World Cup quarter final takes place when Uruguay and France battle it out at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Friday afternoon, with the duo having been among the most impressive teams in Russia so far. Having already knocked out South American opposition in the form of Argentina, France will be hoping to reach the semi-finals, however Uruguay will be quietly confident of causing an upset. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, it is well worth checking out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Uruguay.
Uruguay News & Form
Two goals from Edison Cavani helped Uruguay to a victory over Euro 2016 winners Portugal, with the South American’s again demonstrating their efficiency as a team. Cavani and Luis Suarez will once again form a potentially deadly attacking duo, while Lucas Torreria and Rodrigo Bentancur provide both creativity and resolve in midfield.
France News & Form
France defeated Argentina 4-3 in their Round of 16 clash on Saturday, with PSG wonderkid Kylian Mbappe stealing the show with two goals. Despite not looking assured at the back, the likes of Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud ensure that France are always a team capable of finding the back of the net, with manager Didier Deschamps likely to name the same starting eleven that featured from the off against Argentina, due to Les Bleus having no injury concerns to speak of.
Uruguay vs France Head to Head
The two nations have met on seven occasions in the past, with France having just one win to their name from such encounters. Uruguay have won two and drawn for of their previous matches against Les Bleus, including a narrow 1-0 win in a friendly international back in January 2013, the last encounter between the duo. Luis Suarez scored the only goal of the game that day, with the Barcelona man likely to provide a significant threat to the French defence on Friday also.
