World Cup 2014 Tips

Italy meet Uruguay today at the 2014 World Cup, at the Estadio das Dunas in Natal.

Italy defeated England 2-1 in the first round, before going down 1-0 to Costa Rica in the second round.

Uruguay were defeated 3-1 in their first game against Costa Rica, before Luis Suarez helped them sink England 2-1 in their second fixture.

Injuries & Suspensions

There are no concerns for either side, although Uruguay’s Luis Suarez is still not 100% fit from his recent knee operation.

Prediction & Tip

It’s not easy to pick a winner from this one, with both teams having match winners in their sides. Italy should have the best of the midfield, with the ageless Andrea Pirlo always a threat, while Uruguay’s Luis Suarez is the most lethal goal scorer on the planet on his day. A played out draw is a distinct possibility, so we’ll take the 17/10 Ladbrokes are offering for that result.
