In this post betting tips and preview of Argentina-Uruguay, the second match of the second round in the Group B.
ARGENTINA - URUGUAY
The clash between the strongest teams of the Group B.
We can't say this is going to be a pleasant match because usually when Uruguay is on the pitch, the matches are ugly.
One of the main traits of uruguayan team is to let opponent play bad.
Coach Tabarez is going to arrange a 4 men defense who will stay in line (lateral backs included), avoiding to move forward, exception made during dead balls occasions when central backs try to take advantage of their aerial abilities.
Towards the defense there will be Arevalo Rios, who presses and kicks opponents legs for 90 minutes and also lateral midfielders have mainly defensive taskes. The only offensive player in the midfield is Lodeiro, ready to give winning passes to Cavani and Rolan.
Argentina is forced to win this match, otherwise the risk to meet Brazil in the quarterfinals are really high.
Messi is on a good shape and generally speaking, Argentina has too many top level players.
Argentina has played a very good first half against Paraguay but has had a physical drop in the second half.
In any case we choose Argentina to win.
ARGENTINA: Romero, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Garay, Rojo, Mascherano, Biglia, Banega, Di María, Agüero, Messi.
URUGUAY: Muslera, M. Pereira, Godín, Giménez, A. Pereira, Arévalo Ríos, Sánchez, Rodríguez, Lodeiro, Rolán, Cavani.
