Uruguay will be looking to build on their impressive head-to-head record against Japan as well as their recent winning streak when they take to the field for this game.
The Uruguayans opened their Copa America with an impressive 4-0 win over Ecuador to set the pace as early favourites in the competition.
That win was their fourth in as many games and they scored 14 goals in those games, conceding none.
Their blistering start to this competition would have boosted their morale a great deal and set them up with enough confidence to go for the trophy.
Japan were on a great run of form before this competition after winning two and drawing one of their three warm up games.
They didn’t concede in any of those games and even made it hard for Chile in their first game as well.
We expect this game to be another close affair with Japan determined not to lose another game.
These sides have met 4 times before now with Uruguay winning 3 and losing one and with stars like Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez leading their attack, this might be yet another rout for the South Americans.
Bookmakers believe this will be a straight forward game for Uruguay as they are currently trading long odds-on to come out on top.
