Uruguay played very good in the world cups and defeated Italy and England. They lost to Colombia later on the cup. After that defeat they played 4 matches and they are still undefeated at the moment. It goes without saying that they are the favorites to win this match. Uruguay’s play has been so fine that they have dominated the field and both their offense and defense looked very solid and their co-ordination was very good as well. We will consider their last 5 matches only. In those matches they scored a total of 7 goals, kept clean sheets on all the matches they won. They conceded 3 goals, 2 of which came from their loss against Colombia. They had a draw against Saudi Arabia. Otherwise they were perfect.
