Betting Tip: @ Uruguay to win 1-0 @ 13/2 with bet365

There are a few teams who are quietly slinking through the 2018 World Cup group stage without producing a lot of entertainment and Uruguay are fairly near the top of that list.

Oscar Tabarez’s team squeaked home against Egypt after missing several chances, while one goal was also enough to beat the Saudi Arabians and they now need to beat Russia to finish top of the section.

The outcome of this match will have a significant bearing, with a Uruguay victory meaning they would go through and play the runner-up of Group B who is most likely to be Portugal.

The runner-up in Group A is likely to play Spain and they would be big outsiders in that particular clash, with Russia bouncing after comprehensive wins over Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

The hosts need just a draw to win their section and they are likely to adopt a cagey approach, with their superior goal difference there for all to see.

Uruguay know how to approach games like this. Largely to run a tight ship with Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez at the heart of a central defence and they are as commanding as you might expect from first-choice Atletico Madrid players.

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani don’t need many chances to fall their way in order to find the net and we should expect them to snaffle one away, with the South Americans happy to hunt down their prey and eventually kill them off.
