Uruguay faces Peru

Uruguay faces Peru in the last 1/4-final game from Copa America. We are going to take a look at this fixture in Salvador in our winning soccer predictions for today.

Uruguay qualified in a dominant fashion for the knockout phase by winning Group C with 7 points. Their record at the end of the group stage looked like this: two wins and one draw. They beat the current champion Chile for the first place.

This happened in the third round of the group stage, when La Celeste achieved a crucial 1-0 win over Chile. The game was going to a draw, which would have allowed Chile to win the group. But everything changed minutes before the end of the game, when Edinson Cavani scored for Uruguay and won the game for his team.

During the group stage Uruguay scored 7 goals and conceded only 2. They have the second best attack in the tournament so far, being only behind the host Brazil.

Peru on the other hand qualified for the 1/4-finals, despite of finishing third in Group A. Los Incas won only 4 points during the group stage, but they were enough to progress in the competition. In their group Peru achieved one win, made one draw and suffered one loss. Their most impressive performance was the 3-1 win over Bolivia, but in their last game they suffered a really heavy 0-5 loss by the hands of Brazil.

Peru’s manager Ricardo Gareca certainly has to change something. The performance against Brazil was really bad, so Los Incas will need to improve big time in order to be competitive against Uruguay. Let’s see what they can do.

That’s our winning soccer predictions for today for the Copa America 1/4-final clash between Uruguay and Peru. We wish you good luck.
