Uruguay vs Russia | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Uruguay take on hosts Russia in the final Group A match on Monday afternoon, with the duo set to battle it out for top-spot in the standings, with both sides having won their opening two matches of the tournament. A close encounter is expected in Samara, with both nations having impressed in their encounters to date.
The final match in Group A brings together Uruguay and Russia on Monday, with both sides going into the match with a 100% winning record to their name. With either Portugal or Spain likely lying in wait for the duo in the next round of the competition, it remains to be seen as to how much motivation there is to finish top of the standings. Little separates Uruguay and Russia in the betting odds, meaning that there are some markets well worth utilising. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Uruguay.
Uruguay News & Form
Following wins over Egypt and Saudi Arabia, Uruguay are likely to make minor changes to their starting eleven against Russia on Monday. Manager Óscar Tabárez could well bring in the likes of Lucas Torreira and Diego Laxalt, who both impressed from the bench in their last match. Uruguay are yet to concede a goal in Russia, with the defensive partnership between Diego Godin and Jose Giminez making them extremely hard to beat. Luis Suarez will be looking to add to the goal that saw off Saudi Arabia, while PSG striker Edison Cavani will be hoping to open his account in Russia.
Russia News & Form
Having perhaps been the most entertaining team of the competition to date, Russia will be looking to keep up their winning start in Group A, with the hosts having scored an impressive eight goals in just two matches. Aleksandr Golovin is likely to continue in an attacking position following his fine start to the tournament, while striker Fyodor Smolov could come into the starting eleven, having scored 12 international goals from 34 appearances to date.
Uruguay vs Russia Head to Head
The two nations have met on just one occasion in the past, coming in a friendly encounter back in May 2012. A 1-1 draw was played out in Russia that day, with Uruguay’s Luis Suarez opening the scoring that day. However, with no matches between the duo having taken place since, few conclusions can be made surrounding their head-to-head record.
Uruguay vs Russia Betting Odds and Predictions
Having won their opening two matches in Russia, as well as their significant attacking qualities, it perhaps comes as little surprise that Uruguay are the narrow favourites for victory with all major online bookmakers. The South American’s are available to back at odds of 13/8 with William Hill, while Russia are priced at 21/10 on the same platform to finish with three wins from three in Group A. Meanwhile, a draw after 90 minutes is available at 21/10 with Betbright.
