Uruguay crushed Italy with a 1-0 score - Brazil World Cup 2014

Reigning title winner in 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006, Italy shamefully lost their third match of pool facing a more talented Uruguay. This meeting has attracted much attention from numerous fans of sports betting. For the “Nazionale”, being down to ten men since the 59th minute when Claudio Marchisio put his boot into Egidio Arevalo’s knee, under the whole sight of the referee, the team’s defeat is also partially due to striker Balotelli’s actions. Yet Cesare Prandelli’s team seemed to have more control over the situation than the Uruguayans since the beginning of the game. And goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was likely to have a mere difficulty but only with Luis Suarez and Nicolas Lodeiro’s kicks he successfully managed to save.

For its part, Uruguay team did not skimp on efforts to qualify for the next stage of this world championship. In fact, a glimmer of hope occurred in the 58th minute thanks to Luis Suarez’s crossing shot. However, it was only in the 81th minute that this Atletico Madrid defenseman succeeded in scoring the unique and winning goal of his team. As Italy coach Cesare Prandelli said, a draw would have largely been enough for them to qualify. Some were blaming players for not following his guidelines to the letter. For the moment, Uruguay is awaiting the decisions of FIFA’s Disciplinary Commission concerning Suarez’s attitude; he is actually warned for biting the shoulder of an Italian player during that game. This is thus a particular issue which will probably echo the gaming prediction on sports betting sites.
