Watch Uruguay vs Paraguay Live Stream

Copa América group stage game, with Uruguay taking on Paraguay on Tuesday the 29th of June, 2021, at Estádio Nilton Santos, in Rio de Janeiro.

After losing 0-1 to Argentina and drawing 1-1 with Chile, Uruguay beat Bolivia 2-0 in their third game, securing a spot in the quarterfinals. The question is, will they avoid 4th place and Brazil in the first knock-out round? The way things stand, they are 4th in the table, on four points, one behind 3rd-placed 

Chile, who, though, have already played all four matches. Uruguay have a better goal difference, meaning that a simple draw with Paraguay would be enough to push them up 3rd in the table, avoiding Brazil in the quarterfinals (playing against Peru, instead). Their current form reads; WDLDD. Coach Óscar Tabárez played a 4-3-1-2 formation against Bolivia in their most recent game, with Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani up front, and Giorgian De Arrascaeta behind them. It was an own-goal that gave Uruguay the lead in that game, just before halftime. Cavani secured all three points with his 79th-
minute goal.

Paraguay are on six points from three matches, sitting second in the table, still in with a chance of finishing first, as leaders Argentina are on seven points. The Paraguayans were losing 0-1 to Bolivia at halftime, on their debut, but just before heading to the dressing room, they saw their rivals get left with 10 men. Playing 11 vs 10, Paraguay ended up winning 3-1. Next, they lost 0-1 to Argentina, but right after that they played an awesome game against Chile to win 2-0. 

Their current form reads; WLWLD. Coach Eduardo Berizzo played a 4-4-2 formation against Chile, with Miguel Almirón and Carlos González up front. Samudio and Almirón scored Paraguay’s two goals.

Uruguay and Paraguay have met 75 times in the past and you may be surprised to read that the Uruguayans do have a better record than their rivals, but (here come the surprising part) not by far; 31W, 19D, 25L, that’s it. Goals in total, 114-94, obviously for Uruguay. On neutral ground, things look very different, as the Uruguayans have 5W and 2D in seven matches, not a single loss. In Copa América, they last met in 2015, in Chile, they drew 1-1 in the group stage.

A 1-0 victory for Uruguay is predicted at full-time.

Date: Tuesday, 29th of June, 2021.
