France – Uruguay SOCCER PICKS
No game of the Nations League, but an important test. On Tuesday evening of 20.11.2018 France will receive the team of Uruguay for the friendly match. It will be played from 19:00 (CET) at the Stade de France in Paris. For France, the League is over, even if it is not clear until Monday evening, in which place the team will land in Group 1 of the league. That decides the evening before in the match between Germany and the Netherlands. If the Dutch play a draw in Germany, they will land in front of France. Of course, this also applies to a victory. In the event of a defeat for the Oranje, France will take part in the final round in which the four Group A leaders of the Liga A face each other. So, if the French face up against Uruguay on Tuesday, they’ll already know what place they’ll take. Either way, it should give a victory in Paris in the test, after the last game against Holland was lost. The guests certainly want to take something with them because they lost their last three friendly matches. To pair France against Uruguay betting odds are offered that see the hosts clearly ahead. Accordingly, a tip on the victory of the French may be worthwhile between France and Uruguay, although in such a game always a draw is possible.
Apart from the last game, France can be very satisfied at the moment. After winning the summer championship in the summer, Les Bleus have also shown their best side in the Nations League for the most part. The group victory seemed absolutely possible. In the last match, however, there was a 0-2 defeat in the Netherlands. Although after France was still ranked number 1 in league A, but the Dutch have one more encounter on the account. So France has to hope for the help of Germany to help it reach the final round of the Nations League. France also had chances in this last game, but each conceded a late goal in both halves, while at first did not succeed. Already in October, the French have won their home game against Germany. The fact that it is not always enough to win in friendly matches was shown by the 2-2 against strong Icelanders. Perhaps the result between Germany and Holland should also affect the mood of the French, even if that may only be a small factor.
With four wins in a row Uruguay has actually played a good World Cup, but then met in the quarterfinals on the eventual champion France. With a 0-2 defeat Uruguay had to say goodbye to the tournament and has since completed only test games. Against Mexico, there was still a clear 4-1 win away in September, but since then followed three defeats in a row. They beat South Korea 2-1, Japan 3-4, and a few days ago a 1-0 win over Brazil in London. The team acted so hapless last. Of course, it was just friendlies, but the achievements do not speak for the team. The next qualification comes, then Uruguay must play again at a higher level if a participation in Qatar in 2022 should succeed. In France, however, it is not an easy task; it threatens the next defeat.
