15 Jun 1974 Germany ’74 Uruguay 0-2 Netherlands
Tonight sees a re-run of last summer’s World Cup semi-final between Uruguay and Netherlands when the sides meet in Montevideo.
Even though Uruguay lost that clash 3-2, the game is not all about revenge. It is also an important test against world class opponents ahead of the forthcoming Copa America, which begins on Friday 1 July in Argentina.
As such the hosts are expected to field a first-choice line-up, including the deadly attacking trio of Diego Forlan, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. The Dutch too will have a strong team out, but they are missing a few regulars, notably Mark van Bommel, Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart.
The hosts have a good record in Montevideo and look worth backing to win as favourites at around 2.52 on Betdaq.
RECOMMENDATION: (1-10 points)
Uruguay at around 2.52: 4 points
Monday’s Return: -4.00 points
