Uruguay faces Japan
Uruguay faces Japan in a match from Group C of Copa America. These two sides are going to meet at the Arena de Gremio in Porto Alegre. Let’s take a look at this clash in our winning soccer predictions.
Uruguay started their participation in the competition just as they wanted – with a convincing win. In their first game La Celeste met Ecuador in Belo Horizonte and crushed their opponents in a dominating fashion – 4-0.
Nicolas Lodeiro opened the score for Uruguay, while Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez made it 3-0. In the second half Ecuador’s Arturo Mina scored himself an own goal, which meant even a bigger humilation for the losing team.
With Brazil and Argentina looking far from their glory days, Uruguay could be a real contender for the trophy this year. If the attacking duo of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani show their best form, La Celeste could beat anyone.
Meanwhile Japan can’t be too satisfied with the way they started the tournament. The Blue Samurai faced the current champion Chile and suffered a heavy 0-4 defeat in Sao Paulo.
After 45 minutes of playing, Chile had an advantage of just one goal, thanks to Eric Pulgar’s strike in the 41th minute. Things got really worse for the Japanese team in the second half, when Chile scored three more goals. Eduardo Vargas scored twice in Keisuke Osako’s net, while one of La Roja’s stars Alexis Sanchez added one more for the win.
Chile won the last two editions of Copa America and now they will try to make it three in a row. It would be a terrific achievement, if they manage to do it. As for Japan, the game against Uruguay is pretty important, if they want to remain in the tournament.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Copa America clash from Group C between Uruguay and Japan. Good luck.
