Uruguay take on France in the first quarter-final with both sides believing they just have to get their job done at this stage of the tournament where the quality of football will count for less. Both sides attacking play was mesmerising in the round of 16, and they will be hoping of a repeat of the same when they lock horns in Nizhny Novgorod. Uruguay still remain one of the sides to have a 100 per cent win ratio in the World Cup, but that will be put to a stern test when France, one of the pre-tournament favourites will spin their wave of attacks around their team.

France will be without the suspended Blaise Matuidi who is a tireless runner in the middle of the park for the Les Bleus. He picked up a booking in the win over Argentina where he influenced the match right from the start. Corentin Tolisso of Bayern Munich looks the early favourite to replace Matidui in the starting line-up for France. Ousmane Dembe could also feature in the game with the Barcelona wide man enduring a frustrating cup so far with very little game time.
The main man for the French without a shadow of a doubt is Kylian Mbappe after his pyro techniques against the Argentinians where he made their defense look silly with his breathtaking pace and equally deadly finishing. The 19-year-old is proving to be the next big thing in world football, and his market value is certainly going to go sky high if he continues performing at the same level. Antoine Griezmann will be happy to see some of the attacking pressure eased off his shoulder with Mbappe in prime form. 2018 FIFA World Cup Quarter-Finals Match Predictions: France, Brazil, Croatia and England Favorites to Qualify for Semi-Finals.
