Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia FIFA World Cup 2018 – Uruguay would be keen to seal off another three points in their FIFA World Cup 2018 Group A contest against Saudi Arabia and make their case for a Round of 16 slot even stronger. Uruguay had registered a 1-0 win over Egypt in their first match and another win would make their World Cup campaign look good. Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, were on the receiving end of a 0-5 hammering at the hands of hosts Russia in their first match and they would do very well indeed if they can stave off the Latin Americans, especially with a match against Egypt still to come.
