Uruguay – Japan : Preview & Prediction
Uruguay could be the sensation of this Copa America as the Celeste is impressive in 2019. In fact, the selection of Tabarez crushes everything in its path and has won pretty much his last 4 games against Uzbekistan (3-0) Thailand (4-0), Panama (3-0) and Ecuador (4-0) on this first day. Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez have already made themselves clear from this first meeting and the defense of the Celeste is waterproof since 4 games! Japan will have a lot of trouble overthrowing Uruguay. The Asian selection has suffered its third setback in its last six games against Chile (0-4). Japan was overtaken in all compartments of the game and recorded its first defeat after 2 wins against Bolivia (1-0) and El Salvador (2-0) and 1 draw against Trinidad and Tobago (0-0). With only one victory over his four duels against Uruguay, Japan does not seem able to worry this strong Uruguayan team.
Uruguay come out of a big win over Ecuador (4-0).
Japan suffered a big defeat against Chile (0-4).
Celeste is on a running streak of 4 straight wins.
Japan has suffered 3 losses in its last 6 outings.
Uruguay has won 3 of its 4 direct confrontations against Japan.
With 3 successes in his 4 duels against Japan, Uruguay has a big psychological advantage. The Celeste is also stronger and more structured on paper than her Japanese counterpart, which should allow her to record a second success in this Copa America.
