France vs Uruguay
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Stade de France (Uruguay).
France are going to host Uruguay in one of the most interesting friendly matches that will take place on Tuesday.
The current World champions complicated their position in the Group 1 of the Nations League top flight with a latest defeat away to Netherlands. After three matches in which they snatched seven points, they put a very poor display and they are going to cheer for Germany in the latest round. Kylian Mbappe and the lads enjoyed an excellent streak of 15 matches without a defeat and they are looking forward to getting back on winning track.
Uruguay had a decent campaign in World Cup, however they have been stopped in the quarter-finals by their rivals in this match. After that defeat, the visitors played a total of four matches and managed to book just one victory. Oscar Tabarez’s side failed to three defeats in a row and they want to break this bad run. Although they have been good in the front, the away side needs to tighten up their defence.
France vs Uruguay: Head-to-head
Interestingly, the mentioned match in the World Cup quarter-finals was the first victory for French national team against their rivals. Uruguay managed to beat France three times, while they played four draw matches. Their clashes have been very tight, except their first encounter played long time ago, back in 1924. In the last six occasions, one of the sides managed to keep their net intact.
France vs Uruguay: Prediction
France are in better form lately, but the latest defeat seems to have disrupted them a bit. Uruguay might take advantage of that for securing a positive result from this one. We are expecting another tight battle which might end up with a draw.
We are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes and we don’t expect to see too many goals in this one. Both sides managed to produce a total of three goals in their last six encounters and this one should also stay under 2.5 margin.
France vs Uruguay: Bet Tips
FT Draw @ 3.80 (14/5)
