Uruguay Want to Keep on Dominating

Uruguay has been fantastic since coming to the United States. In the group stage, Pablo Quiroga’s men won all three of their matches. They opened with a 3:1 victory over Panama, followed by a commanding 5:0 win against Bolivia. Finally, in the third round, they got a hard-fought 1:0 win against the Copa America hosts, the USMNT.

Uruguay’s strength lies in their balanced squad, which boasts a potent offense, a robust midfield, and a no-nonsense defense. Their two center-backs Ronald Araujo and Mathias Oliviera were the best players on the field in the duel with the United States.

In the thrashing of Bolivia, forwards Maximiliano Araujo and Darwin Nunez were in the spotlight, as well as midfield general Federico Valverde. In Uruguay’s first game of the tournament, full-back Matias Vina was by far the most impressive player.

Brazil’s Disappointing Campaign So Far

Brazil’s performance in the 2024 Copa America has been underwhelming in the eyes of their fans. The Copa America runners-up from three years ago managed only one win in the group stage. The win in question was a 4:1 victory over Paraguay, a team that arrived in the US as a huge underdog.

Brazil’s 0:0 draw with Costa Rica in the opening round, along with a lackluster 1:1 tie with Colombia in the final group stage match have raised serious questions about their capabilities. This team hasn’t been great, but there’s no doubt that Brazil has some really amazing players on the roster.

Real Madrid stars Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo are this team’s biggest stars in the 2024 tournament.  Both have shown flashes of brilliance, but despite their efforts, Brazil hasn’t achieved much thus far. Will that change this coming weekend?

Uruguay vs. Brazil Prediction

Brazil’s strongest weapon is the attack, but the problem is that Vini Jr. & Co. will be facing Uruguay’s rock-solid defense on Saturday. On the opposite end of the field, Uruguay’s attackers will look to exploit Brazil’s defensive vulnerabilities. Our prediction is that they’ll make their plan come true.

Pick: Uruguay
