Uruguay v Saudi Arabia Betting Preview: Dynamic Duo can knock-out Saudis

MRF_WorldCup18_UruguayvSaudiArabia

YOU can’t qualify for the next round in your first match but in Saudi Arabia’s case you CAN go a long way to being knocked out.

Their 5-0 defeat at the hands of hosts Russia leaves them with a mountain to climb in Group A and anything less than a win against Uruguay and they might as well fire-up the plane back to Riyadh on Wednesday evening.

It was an abject performance by the Saudi’s who unfortunately lived up to their billing as the poorest team to qualify for the finals. And things aren’t about to get much easier against Uruguay.

Suarez, Cavani and Co. huffed and puffed their way to three points against Egypt. Jose Gimenez’s 89th minute header finally breached the Pharoah’s defence when all they’d tried beforehand had failed. Suarez cut a frustrating figure, while the industruous Cavani’s best chance came from a shot which thundered off the post from 25-yards. It was a disappointing opening display from potentially the most deadly striking partnership in the competition – but I’m not prepared to write them off just yet.

We know enough about Suarez’s character to know that he’ll be, ahem… chomping at the bit to line-up against a defence that looks to have more holes in it than Swiss cheese and I can see Uruguay righting a few wrongs by winning this comfortably.

Uruguay are a measly 1/6 and in the same way that I managed to find value in Romelu Lukaku when Belgium defeated Panama I’m turning to Luis Suarez’s strike partner Edinson Cavani to help us take a chunk out of the bookies.

Cavani is more likely to take a Uguruay penalty and with nine awarded in the competition so far (at time of writing) he represents better value than Suarez at 5/2 to open the scoring.
