The 2018 World Cup last 16 brought up plenty more drama and surprises in what has been an incredible tournament so far and the excitement continues into the quarter-finals next, with Uruguay and France facing off first.
The main man and potential star of the show could prove to be PSG starlet Kylian Mbappe, with the young forward having enjoyed one of the all-time great World Cup performances when helping to knock out Argentina last time around. He has been showing plenty of promise for some time and now looks set to be pivotal for his nation against a solid South American foe.
In what is another fascinating quarter-final match-up, France are the odds-on 10/11 favourites with Paddy Power to prevail and secure their spot in the semi-finals on Russian territory. Uruguay are threatening outsiders though at 15/4 with Betfair to rally to what would a massive result in their campaign.
Head to head
These two former champions have met on seven occasions before and it’s Uruguay who boast a winning record, having prevailed on three victories compared to just a single defeat. There have also been four stalemates between the pair.
