United States v Uruguay: Prediction, Tips and Odds

The United States are running the risk of an early exit from their own Copa America, as the Stars and Stripes prepare to face Uruguay at Arrowhead Stadium in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Having beaten a poor Bolivia side 2-0 in their opening game, the US were stunned last time out by a Panama side who ran out 2-1 winners in Atlanta, Georgia.

US striker Tim Weah was shown a red card in the encounter at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. so coach Gregg Berhalter will have to do without his star forward as his side face their biggest challenge in Group C against frontrunners Uruguay.

United States v Uruguay betting tips and predictions

Uruguay to win - 2/1

The last two fixtures between these nations have ended in draws, but Uruguay have made great strides of late under manager Marcelo Bielsa and look capable of damaging the United States’ hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

Uruguay have impressed in their opening two games of the Copa America, winning 3-1 against Panama in their opening game, before breezing past Bolivia 5-0 last time out.

Playing the demanding attacking style Bielsa is known for, the Uruguayan players have adapted well to the Argentinian’s philosophy.

Uruguay have only lost two of their last 17 games and now face a United States side that have been struggling for consistency.

Winning just three of their last eight games in all competitions, things have not exactly gone according to plan for Berhalter since his return to the US job.

Without suspended striker Weah for this crucial game in Kansas City, Missouri, in-form Uruguay have the confidence and the quality to make it a clean sweep of victories in Group C as they march to the quarter-finals.

Defeat would leave the US in danger that Panama can leapfrog them into second place and cause a major upset at the Copa American on American soil.

Darwin Nunez anytime goalscorer - 15/8

A player who has struggled with consistency at times during his Liverpool career to date, Darwin Nunez appears to be relishing his experience with Uruguay in the US.

Scoring in the games against both Panama and Bolivia, Nunez has hit the ground running in this tournament as he also looks to impress new Liverpool manager Arne Slot at Anfield.

Considering his goalscoring form in the US in his opening two games, Nunez looks to be good value in the anytime goalscorer market to add his tally in this competition.

Antonee Robinson to be carded - 7/2

The United States defence look set for a busy game in Kansas City, with Uruguay looking to get bodies forward at any given opportunity.

With runners bursting from deep to join the attack and overload the defence, players like Antonee Robinson are likely to have their work cut out for them.

No defender picked up more yellow cards in the Premier League for Fulham last season that Robinson and he’s a good price to go into the referee’s book at Arrowhead Stadium.

With the likes of Nunez, Maximiliano Araujo and veteran forward Luis Suarez all to potentially deal with, a booking for Robinson would come as little surprise in this one.
