Argentina would have been hoping to get off to a better start than a 1-1 draw with Chile, though they’ll still be confident of finishing top of this group should they win their remaining fixtures, though that’s much easier said than done and recent form would suggest that.
While that result ensures Argentina’s unbeaten run continues and now sits at 14 matches going back to the Copa America semi-final defeat to Brazil in 2019, it does also mean they’ve drawn their last three outings, and half of those 14 outings in total.
They paid the price for a whole host of missed opportunities against Chile, and they can ill afford to be as wasteful against a dangerous Uruguay side.
Uruguay are still yet to get their campaign up and running, and they’ll certainly be looking to bounce back after successive goalless draws against Paraguay and Venezuela in their World Cup qualifiers.
A lack of output was obviously the reason for those two results, though they’ll hope that won’t be an issue from here on in with Edinson Cavani returning from his two match suspension.
The Man United striker has five goals in his last eight international appearances, including three in his last four which includes a goal in a 2-2 draw with Argentina themselves back in November 2019.

With that said, we wouldn’t expect this to be a high scoring affair despite the amount of attacking talent on the pitch for either side.
Uruguay are now goalless in three and while they scored seven across the three games prior to that going back to the beginning of 2020, four of those goals came from the penalty spot as they’ve really lacked a goalscoring edge in recent times.
Argentina have managed to score in each of their last nine outings, though they never scored more than two in any of them, including against Uruguay themselves.
In fact, three of the last four head-to-heads have seen either one goal or none at all, and on that basis, we’ll opt for another close game here under the assumption that goals will be scarce.
The last two meetings have ended all square, while only one of the last 10 has been separated by more than a single strike when Argentina ran out 3-0 winners back in 2012.
Eight of La Albiceleste’s last nine games have been either drawn or separated by one goal, which leaves the winning margin an appealing prospect, though the multi-bet offers more of a cushion with each of Uruguay’s last two defeats coming by two goal margins.
