Uruguay is a strong favourite against Japan in their second match in Group C. The Uruguayans absolutely destroyed Ecuador in the first match and won 4-0. However, the score didn’t do the Uruguayans justice as they could have easily put three or four more goals past the Ecuadorians.
Japan’s first match against Chile finished with an identical result of 4-0, but this time the Japanese were on the losing end. They just couldn’t handle Alexis Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas and were comprehensively outplayed.
Uruguay to Qualify, Japan to Struggle
These two results already give a clearer picture as how things in Group C are going to play out. Uruguay and Chile will probably progress as first and second while Japan and Ecuador will try to qualify by finishing as one of the two best teams to have finished in third place.
However, these things have to be confirmed in the second round and that’s why a clear and comprehensive victory for the Uruguayans is once again on the cards. The dynamic duo of Suarez and Cavani will most definitely be too much for Japanese defenders to handle and punters can expect Oscar Tabarez’ two prized assets to put several goals past their opponents.
Uruguay to Dominate Both Halves
Since the odds for a Uruguay victory are expectedly small punters should go for the next best thing and that’s back Uruguay to win in the first half and at the end of the match at odds of 4/7. This bet is easy money as the Uruguayans always start matches strongly and they will try to get things done here as soon as possible.
Cavani and Suarez to Put Victory Beyond Any Doubt
