Chile vs. Uruguay Predictions and Preview

Uruguay began their Copa America campaign with a convincing 4-0 win over Ecuador and are strong favourites to win the group.

Oscar Tabarez’s side are among the favourites for the tournament – behind hosts Brazil and Argentina – and will be looking to exert minimal energy in the group stage in order to progress.

Chile have won each of the last two tournaments but are not as fancied this time round and have been in a prolonged run of mediocre form – but did begin the tournament with an impressive 4-0 win over Japan.

It is not surprising that it is Uruguay who are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 11/10 with Chile priced at 13/5 and the draw available at 9/4.

Uruguay have conceded just twice in their last six games while Chile have conceded more than once just once in their last five, so under 1.5 goals at 21/10 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 7/10.

A ‘double chance’ on Chile to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 8/11 while a Uruguay win/draw outcome is at 1/4.

If you fancy Uruguay to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 12/5.

One to watch for Chile: Alexis Sanchez is his nation’s all-time record scorer – leapfrogging Marcelo Salas two years ago – and despite his poor form at club level, has scored in each of his last three internationals. Priced at 15/8 to find the net at any point in this game.

One to watch for Uruguay: Luis Suarez has 10 goals in his last 13 international caps and the Barcelona forward is at 11/8 to add to that tally here.

Long shot: Uruguay have collected four clean sheets in a row while Chile started their campaign with a win to nil over Japan. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 15/2.
