Uruguay vs France – South Americans to park the bus?
Uruguay vs France, Friday 7.30pm
The teams have met only twice since the turn of the Millennium – for a friendly in 2008, and at the World Cup in 2002 – and they have yet to break the deadlock.
You would have to go all the way back to the Platini years – 1985 – to find the last time that this head-to-head produced a winner.
Should the deadlock be broken, Diego Forlan has been on decent form, with seven goals in qualifying, and looks a good bet at 7/1.
Or, should he repeat his recklessness of eight years ago and receive a red, you can find odds on a sending off at 10/3.
So can either team finally make it onto the score sheet? See the full Uruguay vs France market.
