Chile vs Uruguay
Copa America Group C
Date: 25 June 2019, Tuesday.
Kick-off: 0:00 UK/ 1:00 CET
Venue: Maracana (Rio de Janeiro).
Chile and Uruguay lock horns in the final group C game of 2019 Copa America with eyes set on the group winner spot.
The teams are separated by 2 points at kick-off after La Roja defeated Ecuador 2-1 in the second group game following by 4-0 thumping of Japan in the opening round.
Good news for head coach Reinaldo Rueda is that Alexis Sanchez is back on form and netted a goal each in both games.
La Celeste also started their campaign in similar fashion by brushing aside Ecuador 4-0. However poor show in front of goal and some disastrous defending surrendered points in the 2-2 draw against the Samurai Blues.
Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has 2 goals to his name and both goals came in the first half of either games.
With the other two sides conceding heavily, Chile and Uruguay are guaranteed first and second spots. Yet, the outcome of this fixture is extremely important as the top spot in the group help them to avoid a tough opponent in the quarterfinal.
Chile vs Uruguay Head-to-head
Their latest h2h meeting head back to calendar year 2016 when Chile bagged a comfortable 3-1 home win in the World Cup 2018 qualifying tie. The reverse of the corresponding fixture was comprehensively won by Uruguay at their own backyard by 3-0.
It is worth to note that none of their last 6 meetings resulted in stalemate; the teams share 3 wins each.
However, two of those meetings registered more than 2 goals.
Their last meeting in Copa America can in the quarterfinal of 2015 edition, Chile bagging a narrow 1-0 win courtesy of a late goal by Mauricio Isla.
Chile vs Uruguay Predictions
This fixture has the prospect to be an entertaining affair with either sides having some prominent players in the attacking front. Each side netter 6 goals so far and we have seen their goal scoring prowess and defensive vulnerabilities against nominal sides in the two fixtures so far.
Therefore, both teams to score has the highest probability to land and we consider this as the best bet for this Copa America fixture.
At the same time, a full-time result is hard to call, since both Chile and Uruguay are poised to qualify for the knockout round even with a defeat here. The 1×2 bet involves high risk and this is something we recommend avoiding when these two sides lock horns this Monday night.
