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.
Italy draw Uruguay 1-1
