Uruguay hold a great head-to-head record in this tie and they also looked amazing of late.Uruguay have won each of their last seven fixtures. They looked faultless throughout this World Cup 2018 campaign so far, but they face a France side that have also been strong at the tournament.
However, there is bad news for Uruguay fans since Edinson Cavani is set to miss the crucial tie against France following the knock picked up in the round of 16 tie.The South Americans is also facing a scare since Suarez picked up a training injury, but he will still make the starting . Maxi Gomez or Christian Stuani should feature instead of Cavani as the 4-3-1-2 formation should remain unchanged.
The French haven’t been at their best during the group stage, but they have shown their abilities against Argentina in the round of 16. It’s a tight affair, but we think that Uruguay have what it takes to reach the Semi-finals.We are thus expecting to see the same starting XI to that clash, meaning Olivier Giroud should still lead the line ahead of the likes of Mbappe and Griezmann.Blaise Matuidi is suspended after accumulation of yellow cards, which means Ousmane Dembele gets another chance here.Paul Pogba, Benjamin Pavard, Olivier Giroud and Corentin Tolisso will miss the semifinals if they pick up a yellow card against Uruguay.
