Chile vs Uruguay by Jamesington
Both sides have played several friendly matches since the tournament finished, with identical records - they have both won 3 matches and drawn the other 2. We are likely to be in for an entertaining encounter as Chile's last 3 matches have featured 12 goals, Uruguay's 3 games have had 11 goals in regular time - nearly averaging 4 goals per match.
It is tough to figure out who is actually likely to win the game, as stated before both sides are in pretty good form and the head to head record is a completely mixed bag - where some patterns do emerge though are in the timings of each sides goals...
Chile have scored in the first half of each of their last 4 matches, they have also scored several goals in the second half too. For Uruguay however, their is less of a balance - in their last 4 matches they have scored 8 goals, EVERY SINGLE ONE coming in the second half. They have actually found the net in the second half of 7 of their last 8 matches, which has included games against England, Italy, Japan and Costa Rica, so we might expect the odds of them doing so today to be around 1.5/1.6. Bet365 (or Bet265 as I repeatedly type by accident) have URUGUAY TO SCORE IN THE SECOND HALF at odds of 2.1, a very decent price.
Luis Suarez will not play in the match, instead returning to Barcelona, which will give others like Abel Hernandez (who has scored against both Arsenal and Manchester City this season) a chance to shine. Whilst Suarez being missing is a blow in terms of goalscoring, Uruguay are more than capable of scoring without him - the likes of Hernandez, Cavani and Penarol's Jonathan Rodríguez have goals in them and can threaten the Chile defence.
A good match in store, with both teams likely to find the net, but let's eak out a little more value and hope that Uruguay can keep up their late, late performances.
