Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
After conceding five goals in their opening World Cup Group A match against hosts Russia amid a generally poor display, Saudi Arabia will need to improve significantly to avoid an early exit from this tournament. They now face a Uruguayan team which was frustrated by Egypt in their first game before netting a very late winner in a 1-0 victory. Containing the Uruguay attack may be a difficult task for the Saudi team with Luis Suarez expected to produce a more impressive performance than in his previous match.

Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Predictions
When beaten 5-0 by Russia last Thursday, Saudi Arabia rarely troubled the Russian defence and that loss was a sixth defeat in ten matches suffered by the national team this year. The Saudis also lost their three international friendly matches prior to this tournament and are now facing a Uruguayan team seeking a fifth successive victory, with all four previous wins earned via a clean sheet. With Diego Godin already emerging as a dominant player in the Uruguay defence, the first of our Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia predictions is for Uruguay to win this game without conceding a goal. The odds for this are 4/6 at Betfred and you should use this £30 free bet for signing up.
After Uruguay’s 1-0 victory against Egypt, there was much discussion about the indifferent form of Suarez during that game, but it was also noticeable that his strike partner Edinson Cavani was unfortunate not to score on two occasions. An excellent save by the opposition goalkeeper denied the PSG striker one goal and he also struck the woodwork with another effort. Having netted 63 goals in the last two Ligue 1 seasons and scored in three of the last five Uruguay matches, Cavani appeals as a decent First Goalscorer tip in this contest. Therefore, the second of our Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia betting tips is for Cavani to score the opening goal. The odds are 5/2 with bet365. Get £100 in bet credits via this sign-up offer.
Russia were generally considered to be a poor host team prior to this tournament, but they still proved capable of scoring five goals against a Saudi Arabia outfit now playing a team which finished second in the CONMEBOL qualifying competition behind Brazil. Yet Uruguay cannot be described as one of the more prolific goalscoring teams having netted more than twice in just two of their last ten matches. However, four goals were scored when beating a poor Bolivia team in the final game of those qualifiers, so our correct score tip to complete these Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia predictions is for a 4-0 Uruguay victory.
Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia Betting Preview
Odds for Uruguay to win this match are 2/13 with Saudi Arabia priced at 20/1, while a draw is offered at 7/1. Both Cavani and Suarez are priced at 1/2 to score at anytime, while taking into account our football predictions, a ‘NO’ for Both Teams to Score is also available at 1/2. Uruguay are also priced at 8/11 to score in both halves and 21/20 to win both halves while Cavani can be backed at 2/1 to score two or more goals. All these odds are from Betfred.
