Uruguay: The late win against Chile helped Uruguay avoid Colombia and sets them up for what looks like a sure-fire spot in the semifinals. Peru has some talent but has struggled to really impress at this cup. With the talent that Uruguay has at the back, Peru will have quite a bit of trouble creating quality chances.
Peru: Coming off a 5-0 loss to Brazil, they’ve got to hit the reset button and quickly. Lacking sharpness in the final third, they are going to need to find a magical moment off a set piece or an error to really feel good about their chances. It’s an uphill battle.
Edinson Cavani scores twice and Uruguay gets into the semifinals with little trouble.
Pick: Uruguay 3, Peru 0
