thumbnail Hello,

Our Spanish expert, Phil Kitromilides, believes that the attacking talent on display will prompt chances and goals at both ends in this quarter-final match on Saturday

After breezing through the group stages, Spain suffered a serious wobble in the last 16 and needed a deflected, injury-time goal from Jese Rodriguez to overcome a spirited Mexico side.

Julen Lopetegui's team will have to improve on their previous showing and are up against a Uruguayan outfit who seem to be gathering some momentum.
 
Nevertheless, la Rojita remain clear favourites for the win and are offered at 8/13 (1.62) with BetVictor. Uruguay, meanwhile, can be backed at 21/5 (5.20), with the draw priced at 3/1 (4.00).
 
The Under-20s World Cup is, of course, an excellent opportunity for spotting young talent and, in the aforementioned Jese Rodriguez, Spain boast one of the most exciting young players on the Iberian peninsula.

The Real Madrid Castilla forward has five goals in four matches and is continuing his record-breaking club form for his country.

Not to be outdone, Uruguay themselves can count on the services of Nicolas Lopez, with the 19-year-old Roma striker netting four times in the tournament and looking like a future star.
 
With two such talented frontmen on display, goals look likely and backing both teams to score at 3/4 (1.75) is an excellent option.

Spain have scored in all four of their games so far but have kept only one clean sheet and that was achieved a little fortunately against Ghana. Meanwhile, Uruguay have netted in their last three matches, meaning that goals at both ends looks highly likely.
 
For a value bet, back a high-scoring game with over 3.5 goals available at a tempting 2/1 (3.00).
