Uruguay vs. France: 2018 World Cup – Match Preview

The first 2018 World Cup Quarter-Final see’s Uruguay entertain France.

Uruguay edged past Portugal in the previous round, with Edinson Cavani scoring twice.

Pepe briefly leveled the tie; however a beautiful finish from Cavani secured Uruguay’s spot in the last eight.

France were too strong for Argentina in a seven goal thriller, with Kylian Mbappe causing havoc.

The Paris Saint Germain forward won a penalty and scored twice in a 4-3 victory.

Match history
The last five meetings between the two nations has yielded an incredible one goal!

The last World Cup meeting came back in 2010, which unsurprisingly finished goalless.

Team news
Cavani is a major doubt having been forced off vs. Portugal, with Christian Stuani set to deputise if required.

This will probably be the only change from the round of 16 win.

Blaise Matuidi is suspended for France and Corentin Tolisso is favourite to replace the Juventus midfielder.

Like Uruguay, they are likely to make just the one change.

Expected starting XI’s
Uruguay (4-4-2): Muslera; Caceres, Godin, Giminez, Laxalt; Torreira, Vecino, Nandez, Bentancur; Suarez, Stuani
France (4-3-3): Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Hernandez; Pogba, Kante, Tolisso; Mbappe, Giroud, Griezmann
