I'll be laying France  to begin with, don't think they'll be a goal until the second half, probably past the hour mark before France eventually lead. Uruguay along with Brazil have the best defence in the World Cup and it's deserved, their Garra Charrua mentality has been impressive but they haven't faced any attack with the quality France have, Mbpape however will not be as effective as he was against Argentina, no chance he'll be allowed to make as many cutting runs as he did and Argentina who were due a hiding. Will be interesting to see Griezmann come up against his Atletico teammates Godin and Gimenez. 

Most players on 1 yellow are French but they're wiped out tonight so no worries about picking up another one for suspension, don't know who the ref is yet.

France to win 1-0Cool
