Uruguay vs France Head to Head:
The head to head record between these two sides makes for some grim reading for those of a French persuasion. France hasn’t scored a goal against Uruguay in over 50 years, losing two and drawing four of their six encounters between 1966 and their last match in an international friendly in 2013.What isn’t particularly encouraging is that prior to 2013 friendly – which Uruguay won 1-0 – the last four fixtures finished in 0-0 draws after normal time, including fixtures at the 2010 and 2002 World Cups.
Uruguay vs France Prediction:
- Uruguay are unbeaten at the 2018 World Cup and have kept three clean sheets in four matches.
- The South American side are sweating on Edinson Cavani’s fitness, as his absence would be a real blow.
- France overcame Argentina in a seven-goal thriller but they still need more from Antoine Griezmann.
Match Prediction : Uruguay 2 – 1 France
