Chile vs Uruguay predictions and betting tips for the Copa America Group C match taking place tonight. These sides sit in the top two places as things stand, but a defeat for Uruguay would leave them vulnerable to elimination.
Chile have already won their first two matches and have looked impressive so far, but we’re betting on Uruguay to bounce back from their 2-2 draw with Japan and top Group C with a win tonight.
Kick-off time: 00.00 BST
Date: Tuesday 25th June 2019
Venue: Estadio Jornalista Mário Filho (Maracanã) (Rio de Janeiro)
The winners of the last two Copa America tournaments are in action tonight against Uruguay, looking to get the point they need to secure top spot in Group C. The Golden generation of Chile players have done well for their country, but they did miss out on last summer’s World Cup. However, winning the last two renewals of this competition is a great achievement for the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas.
Uruguay were held to a 2-2 draw against Japan in their last game, which means they have work to do to ensure they qualify for the latter stages of the 2019 Copa America. A point will ensure a third placed finish at the least, but they’ll want to avoid potential clashes with either Brazil or Colombia by winning this group – and they need to beat Chile to do that.
The attack of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani is enough to strike fear into any defence in world football and the two have already made their mark in Brazil. Suarez has scored twice and Cavani once in their opening two matches so Chile’s defence will need to be at their best.
Uruguay have scored six times in their first two matches and the same can be said for tonight’s opponents, so once again we are expecting goals for our Chile vs Uruguay predictions and both teams to score looks a pretty obvious bet. This is best price 17/20 with William Hill and looks a good option.
Both of these teams will have hopes of going deep into the tournament but the runner up of this group faces a mouth watering clash with Colombia in the next round – although that is great for a neutral, you can be sure that neither manager will want that tie. The winner of Group C plays Peru which would be the much preferred option.
Alexis Sanchez has already had a great Copa America, putting his Manchester United form behind him and scoring goals in both matches thus far. There are great attacking options on both teams tonight so hopefully it is an entertaining affair. However, we are sticking with our ante-post top goalscorer tip Luis Suarez to continue to do the business in-front of goal and betting on him for our anytime goalscorer tip in this match.
Chile to win – 12/5
Draw – 12/5
Uruguay to win – 11/10
