Uruguay – France
It’s time once again for our vip football tips for the FIFA World Cup in Russia. Today we are going to examine the clash between Uruguay and France in the city of Nizhny Novgorod.
Uruguay are perfect in the World Cup so far. La Celeste have enjoyed four consecutive wins in which they conceded just one goal – during the 2-1 win over Portugal in the 1/8-finals. Oscar Tabarez’ team is incredibly disciplined on the pitch, having a great defense and talented players upfront. This Uruguyan team is very hard to beat. It would take a lot of effort to dominate them right now.
Uruguay’s manager Oscar Tabarez has only one problem before the game, but it’s a pretty much a giant problem. The team’s star striker Edinson Cavani is injured after the win over Portugal. Most likely El Matador is going to sit on the bench, but it’s not clear if he’d be able to play. This is a huge problem for the South American side. Cavani is in a great shape. The PSG striker scored both goals for the win against Portugal in the previous round.
France are regarded as big favourites for the World Cup title. Les Bleus are enjoying their best generation since the era of Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry. This French team have superstars an almost every position in the team. After losing the final of the European Cup two years ago, now Didier Deschamps’ boys are highly motivated to clinch the title and write their names in the history books.
In the previous round France recorded an attractive 4-3 win over Argentina in the 1/8-finals. We can say that this is the day when Kylian Mbappe became an international star. The PSG striker scored two of the goals of his team and was the reasons for the first one. He showed spectacular pace and technique against Albiceleste, proving to be a future superstar in football. It’s really difficult to acknowlede that Mbappe is still 19-years old. His way of playing is much more matured. The former Monaco man is a true gem in Didier Deschamps’ selection of players.
Missing Edinson Cavani is a huge hit for Uruguay’s ambitions. We can point out that right now Cavani is the player in the better form from the deadly duo with Luis Suarez. The PSG target man is a person with a huge influence in the Uruguayan team. Most likely against France he’s going to be replaced by Cristhian Stuani. But the simple fact is that such a player like him can’t be really replaced. For Oscar Tabarez this is a pure nightmare that Cavani got injured against Portugal few days ago. Now FC Barcelona’s Luis Suarez will have an even bigger responsibility on his shoulders. He’s used to share it with Cavani, but if Cavani ain’t on the pitch, all eyes will be on Suarez.
Didier Deschamps on the other hand have to deal with the absence of the midfielder Blaise Matuidi. He recieved an yellow card against Argentina, which will stop him from participating against La Celeste. Matuidi is an important figure in France’s midfielder. Most likely he’s going to get replaced by Bayern Munich’s Corentin Tolisso.

France are the more technical and creative team, while Uruguay are a side which plays with a lot of physicality and tactical discipline. This promises an amazing football rivalry here.
