Uruguay can’t afford to lose points

Coming into this game Uruguay picked up seven points from five matches and are at the playoff spot at fifth. Surely, coach Oscar Tabarez prefers an automatic qualification. For that reason, La Celeste need to finish top four where they are facing a very tough battle from Colombia and Ecuador who are fourth and third respectively. Also, Chile are not far behind three points adrift in sixth place.

As a result, and despite the fact that there are still six matches to be played in the qualifications, Uruguay can’t afford to lose points. On the positive side, Uruguay are unbeaten at home in four games. However, La Celeste have scored just twice in their last four games. Certainly, Tabarez knows they can’t play Argentina with such a scoring record and expect to win. Therefore some different offensive tactics must be adopted.

Argentina armed with a fine h2h record

In their last five games, Argentina have just one draw and four wins, grabbing 13 points. In addition, they have a game in hand against Brazil that was abandoned. In the second position with 25 points, La Albiceleste look comfortable with an eight-point gap over third-placed Ecuador. Moreover, with most of the star players in coach Scaloni’s disposal on top form, Argentina look very tough to beat.

To illustrate Argentina’s form, they kept four clean sheets in the last five matches and conceded one goal in that period. Also, Argentina are unbeaten in nine away games and their scoring rate is almost two goals per game in the WCQ. Having won three of their last five h2h meetings with Uruguay, certainly, Argentina have the higher morale as they travel to Montevideo.

Uruguay vs Argentina Key Points

  • Uruguay conceded 0.5 goals per game in their last five home games
  • BTTS happened in Uruguay’s one of their last five home games
  • In Argentina’s three of their last five away games both teams scored

Uruguay vs Argentina Prediction

According to the last five h2h meetings, Argentina have the upper hand and are favorites to win this match again. But the bookies look skeptical for an away win offering high odds of 2.34 for an away win.

The reason for that is because La Albiceleste were unable to win in their last five visits to Uruguay. However, with Uruguay’s recent form, betting on an Argentina win seems very appealing especially with such odds.

Do for our first prediction, we will take the chance and bet on Messi and co to pick up all three points. As for our second one, we will take a more cautious approach combining a double chance outcome with total goals scored.
