World Cup Prediction Uruguay vs France
The quarter-finals bring us great games confirming quality trajectories of teams that present different ideas and game styles.
In the first meeting, between Uruguay and France, we will face the same question of finding a team that thinks the game from their defensive block, as is the case of the Uruguayans, before a set that looks at the game from its ability to unbalance up front, the case of the French.
For Oscar Tabárez, this game brings new questions about how to organize your team.
If faced with Portugal felt the need to adapt their system to an asymmetric view, trying to cover part of the Portuguese qualities, in this match, it will be necessary to contain the game from the central corridor, especially the rises of Pogba, while closing space for the raids of Mbappé. With doubts about the use of Cavani, will also lose there one of his main weapons to look for the goal.
Didier Deschamps has to find a substitute for Matuidi, perhaps the most difficult piece to replace in the French national team, given the importance he has for midfield and attack links, being also essential in the questions of the defensive balance.
Even so, it will be a game where the French may be exposed to the need to have the ball, which may uncover some of their difficulties to create imbalance in possession, facing a very backward block.
Prediction Uruguay vs France:
The game may tend to seek the patience of both parties, avoiding mistakes and seeking, through the forces that have available, create imbalances.
Releasing a little more Mbappé to appear on diagonals could create problems for the Uruguayan midfield, but it will be necessary for the South American team to be able to present offensive forces, so as not to be “buried” in the French initiative.
