Uruguay vs France

Tuesday’s two Quarterfinal matchup are, on paper, absolutely delicious. Uruguay and France face each other in the first match of the day. Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will need to be at the top of their game to beat France. Yes, if Uruguay want to beat France, Suarez and Cavani must impress. Otherwise, look for France to take this one. Maybe Corentin Tolisso will get some action in this one?

Brazil vs Belgium

Belgium fell behind 0-2 before a miraculous comeback against Japan to put them through to the Quarterfinals. If they fall behind to Brazil by that same scoreline, it’s hard to see the Brazilians giving up that lead. Neymar has been fouled more than any other player at the World Cup, but Belgium is the first team that can go toe-to-toe with the Brazilians. This game has the potential to be something special.
