Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.75 or 3/4 No 2.00 or 1/1
Their current form, both home and away, isn’t the best available – only 2 wins in the last 5 games for the current holders of the Copa America.
5th place isn’t a very comfortable place to be, especially since Argentina and Paraguay are very close behind.
A win against Uruguay can send them as high as 3rd, if other results go their way, and would be equal to a big breath of fresh air.
Sadly for them, the Chileans haven’t shown much football in their previous outing against Columbia – and surely need to produce more to beat Uruguay.
On the other hand, the Uruguayans are challenging for 1st place in the series. They are undefeated in the last 4 games, winning three of them, but their away form is particularly weak.
Their last away win came 5 games ago, 2-0 against Bolivia, while a goal difference of 7-7 away from home is hardly impressive.
It’s safe to say that they won’t expect a lot from the game against Chile. If they couldn’t beat teams like Ecuador away from home, it’s hard to think they’ll beat the Chileans.
Chile vs Uruguay Betting Tips
That being said, Chile 1X and under 2,5 or 3,5 goals are our suggestions for the day. The home team is very well-known for their great defense, and they’ve only conceded 4 goals at home in their first 5 games.
We can’t see Uruguay winning this game, and this won’t be very disappointing for them either – even if they lose, they will still remain second.
