Copa America – Play-off: Chile vs Uruguay Preview, Betting Tips and Prediction

Chile welcomes defending champion Uruguay in the opening quarter-final match of the Copa America at the Estadio Nacional Julio Martínez Prádanos on Thursday evening, hoping to win the Copa America cup for the first time in its history. Chile sits on the top of the table of Group A by finishing a 3-3 draw against Mexico and winning against Ecuador (2-0) and Bolivia (5-0), while Uruguay entered into the quarter-final fixture with a win against Jamaica 1-0 in the first round, loss against Argentina with a score of 1-0 in the second round, and the draw against Paraguay in the third round. Chile have topped the Group A with 7 points having won 2 games and drawn 1, while Uruguay finished last in Group B with 4 points having won 1 game, drawn 1 and lost 1.

Both teams are in decent form over the past few months, with each team having won three games, lost one and drawn one. In the last five meetings between the teams, Chile have won two games, Uruguay have won two games, and one game ended in draw.

Chile have never won the Copa America cup, but the team were runners up in 1955, 1956, 1979 and 1987. Uruguay are the defending champion and the most successful team in the tournament, having won fifteen times, finished second six times and claimed third spot nine times.

Chile are in better shape than Uruguay when taking past performances into consideration and are expected to progress to the semi-finals in the tournament. Chile are certainly capable of scoring more goals than Uruguay with Chile have scored 10 goals in three matches and Uruguay have only scored two goals from last three games. We expect Chile to win this game and Chile to be the first of the teams to score 2 goals.

Possible Lineups:

Chile: Claudio Bravo, Gonzalo Jara, Gary Medel, Mauricio Isla, Jean Beausejour, M. Diaz, Arturo Vidal, Carlos Carmona, Jorge Valdivia, Alexis Sanchez, Eduardo Vargas

Uruguay: Fernando Muslera, Maxi Pereira, Diego Godin, Alvaro Pereira, Jose Gimenez, Cristian Rodríguez, Lodeiro, Alvaro Gonzalez, C. Sanchez, A. Hernandez, Edinson Cavani
