Uruguay vs Peru betting tips, predictions, match preview and correct score bet for the Copa America quarter final clash on Saturday 29th June 2019.
Uruguay picked up seven points from their three group matches.
Peru finished third in Group A and were thrashed by Brazil in their final group game.
The last of the quarter finals pits together Group C winners Uruguay and Group A third placed finishers Peru. Uruguay will be looking to make it to their first Copa America semi-finals since 2011, when they won the tournament and with Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani approaching the latter stages of their international career, this looks like one of the final chances they will both have to lift more silverware for their country.
los Charruas started the Copa America in style, with a 4-0 victory over Ecuador, before being held by Japan in a surprise 2-2 draw where they had to come from behind twice. Their final group match decided who would finish top and they beat Chile 1-0 thanks to a late Cavani goal.
Peru had a mixed group stage, drawing their opening match against Venezuela before a resounding 3-1 success over Bolivia. That gave them four points but with hosts Brazil still to play, and they were outclassed by the Samba Boys, losing 5-0 in a match where it could have been even worse. If they play anything lilke that against Uruguay they will be making a swift exit from Copa America and we are backing a comfortable Uruguay win for our football tips.
Uruguay have won five of their last six matches and in five of those they have kept a clean sheet. Peru have failed to score in four of their last six games now including two in this tournament already. With the tight Uruguay defensce anchored by Diego Godin, we’re backing them to win to nil here at 6/4 with bet365.
Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez is in the luxurious position of having two of the best strikers in world football at his disposal, and each time we look to pick out an anytime goalscorer tip we have to choose one of the two. In this tournament, both of their star players have two goals so far but we tipped Suarez to be the tournament top scorer so we’re sticking with our man for this weekend’s Uruguay vs Peru betting tips.
Having already gone for a Uruguay win to nil as our earlier bet, that means we have to back that up with a correct score prediction. Uruguay’s defence has been fantastic in two of their three matches so far, keeping out a free scoring Chile side in their final group game, allowing Cavani to fire them to top of the group. As we saw with Brazil’s shock 0-0 draw against Paraguay in their quarter final, there are no easy matches deep into this competition but with another solid defensive display against a Peru team who don’t tend to score many goals, Uruguay can win this match 2-0 and book their place in the semi-finals.
Uruguay have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six matches now, winning all five.
Peru have failed to score in two of their three Copa America group stage matches..
They shared a win each in recent meetings for World Cup 2018 qualifying.
