Match Preview

After losing 5-0 to Russia in the opening game of the World Cup (WC) finals, Saudi Arabia face a Uruguayan side who beat Egypt 1-0 courtesy of a 90th minute winner.
Uruguay’s win over Egypt was a typically tight opening round game, with limited chances as neither side wanted to lose. Saudi Arabia, however, looked completely out of their depth against hosts Russia.
That loss for the Saudis was the worst opening-game loss since Mexico’s 5-0 loss to Brazil in 1950, with only the USA’s 7-1 defeat to Italy in 1934 being heavier.
While the Saudis have little to no chance of qualifying for the next stage, a win for two-time WC winners (1930, 1950) Uruguay will almost certainly secure their place in the last 16.
The South American’s are on a good run at present of four-straight wins to nil, and only one defeat in their last ten (W6, D3, L1). Saudi Arabia’s latest loss was conversely their fourth-straight defeat, all four of which saw them losing at half-time.
The two sides have only ever met twice before with a 1-1 draw in 2014 and a 3-2 home win for the Saudis in 2002.
Players to watch: Saudi ‘keeper Abdullah Al Muaiouf could be a busy man and needs to watch Uruguay defender José Giménez at set pieces, after he scored two great headers in the last two games.
Stat attack: In their last 11 games at WC finals, Uruguay have failed to score just once.
The last eleven Saudi Arabia games have all produced over 1.5 goals.
The Saudis have failed to score in their last three WC tournament games and six of their last seven.
This will be Saudi Arabia’s 15th game (W2, D2, L10) at a finals and the first against South American opposition.
This will also be Uruguay’s first ever finals game against a team from the AFC region.
