Uruguay vs Russia LIVE World Cup 2018: Edinson Cavani scores - latest score, goals and updates plus prediction, how to watch online, team news, line-ups

Uruguay and hosts Russia have both qualified from Group A and are battling to advance as group winners.

This year is the first time that Russia have advanced from their group, the Soviet Union finished fourth in 1966, and face either Spain or Portugal in the next round after an impressive start to the tournament.

Despite winning their first two games, Uruguay are playing at a fraction of what they are capable of. With a strong defence behind them, they are struggling to effectively transition the ball through the midfield and get the best out of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.
