Argentina vs Uruguay Prediction

All eyes will be on the Barcelona duo in the match as Lionel Messi will go against Luis Suarez at Bloomsdale. Argentina will be standing strong as they have lost only twice in the last ten matches and that was against Colombia and Brazil.

Moreover, the host has one of the best players in the world, Lionel Messi in their squad. With the Juventus winger, Paulo Dybala finding his scoring legs lately, the Albiceleste front end will be more sharpened in the game.

Lionel Scaloni will be pleased with his team’s performance at home. They have won the last three fixtures at home against the likes of Chile, Mexico, and Ecuador. The Gaffer will also be pleased with Messi’s return after the ban.

Even without Messi, the team managed to net six goals to one against Ecuador at a neutral location in the previous home match.

Uruguay boss Oscar Tabarez, on the other hand, welcomes Luis Suarez back to the starting XI. Suarez has overcome his injury, is likely to prove a handful for Argentine defenders. PSG ace Edinson Cavani is back to the squad as well. Yet playing at Argentina’s home ground will be a hard task for Diego Godin and the team.

Besides that, La Celeste has been unbeaten in the last ten fixtures in their schedule. After a series of four losses in the International friendlies against South Korea, Japan, Brazil, and France, Uruguay has managed to stay unbeaten in the last six trips on the road.

Their previous two encounters away from home with the USA and Peru ended in sharing the spoils in the fixtures. It was Nunez that equalized the score with Peru in the last minutes after trailing 0-1 in the first half of the game.

As such, the host has more chance of winning the game. Since both teams are playing well, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game. Also, we can expect both teams to slot in goals in ninety minutes.
