Uruguay vs. Russia 2018 World Cup: Can hosts retain momentum?

Uruguay and Russia which have won  their last two games in the FIFA World cup 2018 and are currently 6 points atop  Group A.

Uruguay vs Russia will take first place at the Samara Arena.

No one may have expected much from Russia, with ESPN’s FiveThirtyEight giving it a 39 percent chance of winning the group, but there are compelling reasons it is atop Group A along with Uruguay. Clearly, home-field advantage really is that in the World Cup, with only one host nation failing to qualify for the knockout round. It also helps that Russia drew the tournament’s easiest group and came roaring out of the gate, scoring five goals in its World Cup opener against Saudi Arabia.

Now, after a 3-1 victory over Egypt, and with a plus-seven goal differential, Russia has a 66 percent chance of winning the group and, like Uruguay, has already qualified for the knockout round. Ian Lamberson of The Post’s Fancy Stats notes that “the secret to Russia’s early success has been twofold: It has created quality chances, and it has scored a remarkable amount of those chances.”

With both teams in the round of 16, Russia will look to maintain its momentum against a team that has done all it needed to win its first two matches and little more. There’s likely to be a change at midfield, where Lucas Torreira figures to see more playing time. Will Uruguay opt to rest strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani and defenders Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, knowing full well that a challenging meeting with Spain or Portugal most likely awaits?

D’banj Loses His Only Son

The news was gathered after the singer took to his Instagram page to post a black image this evening with caption: “Trying Times. But my God is Always and Forever Faithful” According to reports the remains of the child has been moved to the morgue. Our thoughts and prayers are with the singer and his family.
