Here's Tom Clee's tip for Uruguay v France to get you started...
Correct score: 1–1
Let’s look at what we know.
Uruguay have arguably the best defence in this World Cup, having gone over nine hours without conceding before Portugal’s equaliser in the last 16.
France boast too much firepower not to score, but they’re unlikely to get a hatful.
They also have a habit of letting in soft ones, conceding to Russia, USA and Australia during a run of just three clean sheets in nine matches this year.
A 1-1 draw feels like the most logical scoreline.
Luis Suarez to score
France have goalscorers all over the pitch, whereas Uruguay’s team is built to feed their front line.
With Edinson Cavani unlikely to start, Suarez has every chance of adding to his tally of two goals for the tournament.
Uruguay to qualify
Should we go beyond 90 minutes, then Didier Deschamps’ natural conservatism means he’s unlikely to take many risks during extra time.
Oscar Tabarez, on the other hand, has built a tough and wily side that I’d back to take penalties with their eyes closed should they fail to find a winner.
Under 1.5 Uruguay cards
For a physical side, Uruguay’s discipline is exemplary.
They’ve only received one yellow card all tournament. That was shown to Rodrigo Bentacur against Russia, and he was subbed four minutes later.
Referee Nestor Pitana went 115 minutes without reaching for his pocket when taking charge of Croatia and Denmark in the last 16, so Uruguay should have no problem staying on the right side of their fellow South American.
