Chile v Uruguay Betting Tips & Predictions
It is Chile who are sitting top of Copa America Group C going into this clash in Rio de Janeiro, with La Roja having won both of their matches in Brazil thus far.
Reinaldo Rueda’s team made light work of Japan by beating them 4-0 in Sao Paulo before a 2-1 win over Ecuador and it means that the current Copa holders are sitting in the box seat when it comes to winning the section.
Just a draw would be enough to make sure that the Chileans go through to the last eight as group victors and this would set up an easy-looking quarter final clash against a third-placed team who is likely to be Peru or Qatar as it stands.
The alternative for both of these sides is finishing runner-up and facing Colombia at the last eight stage which is far less preferable considering that Los Cafeteros have already beaten Argentina and will clearly be difficult opponents.
While Chile only need a draw, it’s not as though they can spend ninety minutes trying to keep things tight against a Uruguay side who demonstrated that they have the stomach for a fight at the 2018 World Cup.
When required to win against Russia in the final group game, La Celeste delivered and they come into this match after scoring six goals in their first two matches.
Oscar Tabarez’s side had to come twice from behind against Japan to draw the game although we should expect them to eliminate the defensive errors against a Chile side who only just edged past Ecuador in the previous game.
Player for player, it’s the Uruguayans who are stronger and that includes that front pair of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani who can make things tough for a Chile side who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
