Uruguay: That draw against Japan was a tough one to swallow despite having so many chances. Uruguay had 29 shots to Japan’s 12, yet they drew 2-2. If anything, it gives them the chance to work on some finishing and build more confidence in front of goal for this one.
Chile: They’ve been one of the surprises of the cup despite winning the last two editions. The team is filled with veterans like Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and Gary Medel, and they are determined to produce in what could be their final big tournament together. This team is hungry after missing out on the 2018 World Cup.
Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani score to give Uruguay Group C and a ton of momentum after that Japan draw.
Pick: Uruguay 2, Chile 1
