Uruguay and Russia escapes to the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup are confirmed after equally collecting 6 points from two matches each so far. On the other side of Egypt and Saudi Arabia, which both have no points, it is certainly crossed out.
In the final matchday of the 2018 World Cup group phase, Uruguay and Russia no longer need to fight for a ticket to the big 16. The Uruguayan vs. Russia party will be present at the Cosmos Arena, Samara, on Monday (25/06/2018), with the lure of the title group champion.
With the current situation, Russia is certain to qualify for the last 16 World Cup 2018 with the status of Group A champion if able to avoid the defeat against Uruguay. Instead, Uruguay must win in the last fight to finish first.
The group winner (or runner-up) position will also decide who will face Russia and Uruguay in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup; champions Group A vs. Group B runner-up and runner-up Group A vs. Group B champion.
Not infrequently such things make teams so can “choose” opponent. Difficult to happen to the current round of 16, considering the competition in Group B is still tight; Spain, Portugal and Iran are still competing for two tickets to qualify.
The fact that the new Group B fixing parties will also be played on Tuesday (aka alias) after the Uruguay vs Russia match will also make it difficult for Russia and Uruguay to guess their opponents in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup.
