Uruguay-France Betting Preview: Expect goals from both sides

Les Bleus travel to Montevideo looking to continue their impressive away form in international friendlies, with our tipster backing goals and has a 21/10 value bet
Didier Deschamps takes his French side to Uruguay for a friendly on Wednesday, looking to bounce back after defeat to Spain in their qualifying match in their campaign for the World Cup in 2014. Uruguay will welcome this friendly after struggling in their qualifying matches so far, sitting in sixth position in the Conmebol table, but have a crucial match versus fifth-placed Venezuela later this month, so this is a perfect game for them to prepare for that crunch match.

France come into this match with four wins in their last eight matches. Deschamps men sit in second place in their World Cup qualifying group, trailing leaders Spain by one point.

Les Bleus have three friendlies this summer before a crucial match versus Georgia in September, with Coral pricing the away side at 21/10 (3.10) to take the victory in this match.

Uruguay are currently going through a terrible run of form. Oscar Tabarez’s men have only won once in their last nine matches, losing 2-0 to Chile in their last World Cup qualification match. However, Coral price the home side as favourites at 13/10 (2.30) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 9/4 (3.25).

A bet that stands out in this match is both teams to score at evens (2.00) with Coral. Despite Uruguay not scoring against Chile earlier this year, the both teams to score bet would have paid out in the four matches before that.

This bet would also have paid out in four of France’s last five matches and, with both sides having nothing to lose in this friendly, expect an open game.

For those looking for more value, France to win outright at 21/10 (3.10) seems long, if you take into fact both sides form. Despite having home advantage, Uruguay have not taken advantage of that in their last four matches, winning only once.

France, on the other hand, seem to relish playing away from home in friendlies. Les Bleus have won their last five away friendly matches, including victories against Italy, Germany and England.
