Looks like Uruguay are going to use the same 11 that won 5-0 in Amman.

Martín Silva; Maxi Pereira, Lugano, Godín y Cáceres; Arévalo Ríos; Stuani, Lodeiro, Cebolla Rodríguez; Cavani y Suárez.

It's a sell out in Montevideo.

An absolute charade of a game,cost me a ton in the end,but I feel for anyone who got scalded on it.It definitely seemed suspicious,I watched the entire 90 minutes,and uruguay were not bothered.Four things that bothered me were

1/ The most startling aspect for me,if it was pre arranged,was why they narrowed in the pitch,it should/did eventually sound the alarm bells.

2/ The condition of the playing surface.

3/ The final balls by uruguay seemed deliberately over/under hit.

4/ Cavani seemed intent not to score,he constantly turned dangerous situations into wasted opportunities,never looked to link up with suarez.

Uruguay had more shots and more shots on target than last week. The only difference was that Jordan turned up as they normally do for away games and Uruguay didn't get the luck they did in the first leg. It would have been much the same score if the deflections and lucky bounces fell as they did in the first leg.

First 4 goals last week came from Uruguay strikers being unmarked in the area due to deflections or walkabout duty. Fifth goal was class.

Jordan away are a defensive team, so there were plenty of men in the box this week to cut out the lucky breaks.

Had a p*sser of a week after redding out of my France to qualify bet on Saturday morning only to see them get to a position where I could of cashed out early first half in the return game, and redded out of my Uruguay back around the hour mark. In the end I lost a three figure profit, but actually felt not too bad as it would have been three times as much, and the rest of it non-profit money.

Lesson here: never back a side that will be thrilled to draw 0-0. If they scored early it would of been four, it gets to the hour and motivation becomes a serious issue.

It reminded me off when FIFA 'had a word' with sides in the 2002 world cup that they didnt want nations getting humiliated or players scoring hattricks.  It ended up with teams subbing players who had scored twice in matches where the game was as good as over.

This looked for all money a tie where Uruguay were almost under orders not to score. Everytime a ball was played in the air the strikers headed it back down the field away from goal rather than flick it on. When they were around the box inevitably they passed to a defender. The less said about the deliveries for the free kicks and corners the better. Quite what Lugano was doing heading onto the crossbar from a yard out is anyones guess.

There was a ridiculous corner near the end where Suarez I think drilled it 10 yards outside the edge of the area to no one.

It's a curious situation. I lost, like I said, a decent three figure sum, but it was all profit, which p*sses me off, but it's nothing compared to losing money you've actually slaved away for, and I saved over twice as much of that kind of money by redding out on about the hour mark.

I got the impression that bots were just ruling the markets. Uruguay were still single figures to back in the 91st minute with Jordan having a free-kick and a man down timewasting; then Uruguay were still a shorter price than Jordan in the 94th minute when Jordan had a corner. The match odds market - unlike the goals markets - was stuck far too much to its original price.

Lets be clear, Jordan are a mug side. You don't get beat 5-0 at home to Uruguay in such an important game, I don't care how many lucky deflections Uruguay had. I'd say the gap between Uruguay is like a full strength Man United and a Conference side, maybe even lower. Uruguay should have played the reserves and won. That's the reason  I was on it, and didn't believe the fact the tie was won was relevant. I actually would never blindly back, I even doing the work when it's San Marino.

I can't believe this is still going on.

As much as people think there is a massive difference between the two sides, there isn't. Jordan at home are a pretty decent outfit and better teams than Uruguay have gone there and lost. Where Uruguay have a different class is that they have a few expensive strikers who people see the name of and back the national team. Uruguay aren't a very good side, they have played poor football for the last few years and only got through the group ahead of Venezuela because of help(yes the football super power). Those that are looking for fixes should watch the Colombia and Argentinian games  that sealed Uruguay's qualification(Dig up the threads on here and you will see people talking about the result the market expected and duly delivered, that's a clear sign). Uruguay haven't played as a team for a long time and that was abundantly clear in the Confed cup.

The only victories they've had since 2011 outside of friendlies are as follows; Peru 4-2, Venezuela 0-1, Nigeria(N) 1-2, Tahiti(N) 8-0 & Peru 1-2. Would you be shocked that Jordan beat that motley lot at home?

Jordan are a decent home side, they defend well and play as a team. Where the real difference in class lies is that underneath Jordan's first team you get a sharp drop in players and in the first leg that showed. What didn't show it seems were that Jordan were the better team for much of the game in a 5-0 loss. Up until the 4th goal Uruguay had 4 shots on target and Jordan had more shots on target and overall. Jordan are a typical middle east side who struggle to finish off decent play, much was the same here. Uruguay got lucky.

I don't buy that Uruguay were told on high to be easy on them nor that they weren't motivated to win the game in front of their own fans because of their horrible home record.

Was the Uruguay v Jordan game a shock, yes, Jordan got lucky. The first leg was the bigger shock and those that don't know Jordan from Adam had Tahiti contact lenses fitted.

Unless Uruguay change something they will be rubbish in the World cup and everyone who sees Cavani and Suarez and backs on the name will end up disappointed once more.
