A draw good enough for Chile and Uruguay to progress

Chile take on Uruguay at The Maracana on Tuesday with Chile only needing a draw to top Group C.

The 2015 and 2016 champions have maximum points from their opening two matches and will be looking for an easier tie in the next round.

The runners up of Group C will face Colombia in the quarter finals but a win for either of the two teams on Tuesday will see them play one of the best third place sides.

Chile followed up their 4-0 thrashing of Japan with a 2-1 win against Ecuador. Jose Fuenzalida opened the scoring in their last match but Enner Valencia equalized from the penalty spot.

Alexis Sanchez won it for Chile; converting Charles Aranguiz’s cross in the 51st minute to send his side into the last eight.

Sanchez also scored against Japan and the Manchester United forward has scored five goals against Uruguay, more than he has against any other nation.

Uruguay also claimed a 4-0 victory in their opening match however they could only manage a draw against Japan in their previous game.

They twice came from behind as the match finished 2-2, with Luis Suarez and Jose Gimenez getting on the scoresheet for Uruguay.

Remarkably, Uruguay had 29 shots against Japan but failed to claim all three points. In comparison, Chile have only managed a total of 25 shots so far from their two matches.

Chile beat Uruguay 1-0 in the 2015 Copa America quarter-finals. More recently, both teams traded convincing home wins in their World Cup qualifiers.

Much was made of Chile’s form leading up to the tournament however they have risen to the occasion and will be desperate to claim a third straight Copa America title.

Uruguay’s exciting blend of youth and experience could see them go far in the tournament. They could make a real statement with a win against Chile.

Uruguay head coach Oscar Tabarez is set to become the first ever manager to reach 200 games as the head coach of a national team. He has won nearly half of his matches in charge and will be hoping to claim his 99th win against Chile.

It’s going to be a close affair on Tuesday as both teams look to avoid a loss to progress. A low scoring draw is likely.
