The match is over.
Score: 0-1.

Holders Chile face Uruguay in the final group game of this year’s Copa America Tournament in Brazil on Monday night.

Predictions

Chile beat Japan 4-0 in their opening group game, thanks to an Edu Vargas double, and goals from Alexis Sanchez and Eric Pulgar – they play Ecuador on Friday night in their second match of the group stage. Chile warmed up for this competition with a 1-1 draw with the United States and a 2-1 win over Haiti.

Uruguay also beat 10-man Ecuador 4-0 in their opening game in this year’s Copa America tournament, and play Japan in their second match before finishing up the group stage with this game with holders Chile in the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro. The Uruguayans warm up match before heading to Brazil was 3-0 friendly win over Panama.

Chile have won this competition back to back in the previous two editions and come into this one off the back of a run of three wins in their last nine matches, before playing Japan in the opening fixture. La Roja failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, finishing in sixth place behind Peru on goal difference.

Uruguay went out during the group stage of the last edition of the Copa America. Finishing behind Mexico, and Venezuela, but ahead of Jamaica. The Celeste lost out at the quarter-final stage of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, losing 2-0 to eventual winners France. With two evenly-matched teams, a 2-2 draw is well worth a shout.

Betting Tips

Both teams could have qualified for the next round by the time this game comes around, and there is the possibility that the two nations could give their squad players a chance in this one. 10Bet have the draw at 43/20.

There have been seven goals scored in the past two meetings between these nations and that could be why the bookies are offering odds of 57/20 for the Total Goals over 2.5 market, including at 10Bet.

  • Uruguay have won just two of their last eight games in the Copa America, which was that 4-0 defeat of Japan and a 3-0 win over Jamaica in 2016.
  • Chile will be hoping to make it three Copa America wins in a row after they won both the 2015, and the 2016 editions.
  • Uruguay have won the Copa America 15 times, the most any country has managed, and they will be hoping to lift the trophy for the first time since 2011.
