URUGUAY vs RUSSIA
KICK OFF: Monday 25th June 2018 | 15:00 CET
GROUP A: ROUND 3 | SAMARA ARENA
Defences will hold steady in a low-scoring encounter
Russia and Uruguay have already qualified from the group after winning their first two games. As such, this match will be about fine-tuning their squads in preparation for trickier opponents to come.
Nobody expected Russia to be in this position and racking up eight goals in the course of just two matches. Home advantage is playing out incredibly well. Russia boasts a superior goal difference over Uruguay, and a draw is all that is needed to finish top of the group.
- Uruguay has kept five clean sheets in their last five games.
- Russia has not conceded more than one goal in their last four matches, keeping one clean sheet in the process.
The two teams are strong defensively, and I’m going for under 2.5 goals scored in this one.
