Last Game Analysis: Senegal were the better side in the 1-1 draw with Great Britain. They spurned a few chances but on the whole they were unlucky to just take the 1 point. One worry was the tendancy to dive into tackles and on another day they could have had at least one red card. They will have to up their game against Uruguay as they are a class above GB. Uruguay weathered a difficult 1st half against UAE. They went a goal down but didn't panic and it eventually paid off as they ended up with the three points. Towards the end of the game they were in total control as UAE ran out of steam. An excellent free kick from Ramirez was the game highlight. Luis Suarez was a major player with a hand in both goals.
Betting Analysis: Another game thats a close call. Both sides looked impressive without actually excelling themselves. Uruguay just done enough to win and Senegal seemed happy with a point against the hosts. Looking at alternative markets I'm drawn to the Over/Under Card markets. Selection is Over 4.5 cards @1.95. Both sides can get carried away, indeed Senegal v GB had only 4 cards when at least 3 awful challenges were not punished. Referee is Dr Felix Brych, The German has had many erratic perfomances in last years Champions League and in the Bundesliga.
