Uruguay vs Chile Prediction

Uruguay has to depend on Luis Suarez more since they have dropped Cavani from the team for the upcoming match. This doesn’t affect their scoring at any pace in the middle.

Chile also has names in the squad that can trouble the home team’s defense, including Alexis Sanchez and fresh faces like Rodrigo Echeverria and Juan Carlos Gaete.

Analyzing the attacking tools of both sides, we can expect at least two goals in ninety minutes. The tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be a suitable option at 1.40 odds for the punters.

It is a tight encounter in Montevideo but the chances are slim for the visitors considering the ground advantage held by Suarez and Co.

It favors La Celeste for a home win at 1.80 odds, but it will be safer to go with a draw no bet over Uruguay at 1.40 odds regarding any slim chances of the match turning into a draw.
