My Team's Next MatchFrance

The Nizhny Novgorod Stadium hosts the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-final between Uruguay and France at 17:00 local time on Friday 6th July in what should be an amazing match.

France go into the fixture as favorites, but Uruguay have looked impressive in their four games so far and will not bow out without a significant fight.

France vs Uruguay Prediction

Draw Half Time / France Full Time

Half Time / Full Time

+350

France are +100 to win this game in the regulation 90-minutes with Uruguay priced at +335 by Bovada; the draw comes in at +220. While these odds look tempting, the better bet to make is for the game to be a tie at half time before France emerging victorious at the end of 90-minutes at +350.

The French looked extremely dangerous going forward when they beat Argentina 4-3 in their Round of 16 match, but they will find Uruguay a much more resilient team as they have kept 10 clean sheets in their last 10 games. 

We expect Uruguay to hold out during the first half on the back of their excellent defense, but France should edge the game and beat Uruguay in the latter stages as the South Americans begin to tire.

    France vs Uruguay World Cup Preview

    There is a good chance that whoever wins the game between Uruguay and France could go all the way and be crowned champions, even if Brazil are still in the tournament at this stage.

    Uruguay have been known in the past for their open and free-flowing style of play and while they still do attack with flair and pace, coach Oscar Tabarez has instilled steel into his team’s defense to the point they are almost impossible to break down and score against.

    The Uruguayans have managed to keep 10 clean sheets in their previous 13 games and have only conceded six goals in their last 14 matches. When your team has such a stoic defense, you have a solid base on which trophies can be won.

    It is not all about defending for Uruguay, they are just very good at it. Uruguay have some amazing forwards who strike fear into the hearts of the defender they come up against. Luis Suarez has been superb and unlucky not to have scored more goals at this tournament, while Edinson Cavani has banged in three goals, including a brace in the 4-3 win over Argentina.

    Cavani could miss this game due to a calf strain and if he does Uruguay do not really have anyone who can step in and fill his boots. This weakness, along with the fact Uruguay have several players over 30 years old, meaning they will likely tire the longer the game goes on, is what makes France favorites to progress to the semi-finals.

    Results / FixturesFrance

    France struggled to get out of first gear during their group games but now seem to have their foot firmly on the gas and are starting to look like genuine World Cup contenders. 

    The French’s greatest strength is their attacking prowess. They have only failed to score in two of their last 15 games and have scored at least two goals in 10 of this 15 matches. In Kylian Mbappe they have a legitimate superstar and one who is growing in confidence with every game he plays.

    Les Bleus were incredible at times in their 4-3 victory over Argentina in the Round of 16 and could easily have scored eight or nine goals in what was a thrilling encounter. It will be interesting to see how France’s attacking unit gets on against the superb Uruguay defense.

    Defensively, France are usually sound, although they have only kept three clean sheets in their last 10 games and those came against Ireland, Peru and Denmark who are hardly amazing going forward. The French defenders will have to be on top of their game to keep Uruguay at bay because Cavani and Suarez are far better strikers than they have faced so far in this tournament to date.
