Betting Preview: Latest Results and Roster Updates

Uruguay National Football Team

La Celeste recorded three wins from its first three Copa America games. They began the tournament with a 3:1 win over Panama and followed it with a 5:0 victory over Bolivia. In their final match, they beat the USMNT 1:0 thanks to a 66th-minute goal by Mathias Oliviera.

Darwin Núñez has been prolific for La Celeste, bagging two goals. The Liverpool forward will be hungry to add to his tally against Brazil. Maximiliano Araújo has also been impressive, chipping in with two goals and an assist. Vervelde, Ugarte, Ronald Araujo, and Oliviera remain crucial, shoring up the midfield and defense.

Maximiliano Araújo and Manuel Ugarte left the game against the USA with injuries. It is still unclear if they will be available for this clash.

Brazil National Football Team

Unlike their opponents, Brazil has only secured one victory at Copa America 2024. Their sole win came in their second game against Paraguay. Before that result, they drew 0:0 with Costa Rica and 1:1 with Colombia in their final group game.

Vinicius Jr. sparked to life against Paraguay, netting a brace. He’ll need to replicate that form against a tougher Uruguay side. Lucas Paqueta has been impressive and will be vital to unlocking La Celeste’s defense. Guimaraes, Gomes, Rodrygo, and Raphinha must contribute positively to Brazil’s effort.

Brazil do not have any injury concerns ahead of this clash.

Although Brazil has a solid roster on paper, they have been unable to perform in this tournament. Now they face a Uruguayan team that has only lost two games in two years. Without a doubt, the odds favor La Celeste. They have won four of their last five games, securing dominant wins against Mexico, Panama, and Bolivia. They also won their last game against Brazil, defeating the Seleção 2:0 in a World Cup Qualifier. With a solid defense and strong physical presence across the pitch, Uruguay can play deep on the counter. Whatever system they use, Brazil will face an intense and chaotic battle, especially in midfield. Given their current form, style of play, and goal-scoring abilities, we expect La Celeste to advance to the semi-finals of the 2024 Copa America.

Tight battles with clean sheets have been the norm in recent meetings between these South American giants, and this encounter is likely to follow suit. Uruguay’s defensive prowess is undeniable, having secured five clean sheets in their last eight games, while Brazil’s attack lacks a bit of bite in this competition. Their recent goalless draw with Costa Rica proves this point. Also, their sole goal against Colombia came from a free kick, highlighting their struggles in converting chances. With La Celeste’s defensive wall standing firm and Brazil’s attack lacking bite, one team will potentially keep another clean sheet, at least from one of the teams.

Anytime Goal Scorer: Darwin Nunez @ 2.95 (2/1)

Uruguay’s attacking spearhead, Darwin Núñez, arrives in this clash hungry for another goal. He’s already notched two in three games (averaging 4.3 shots per game, 1.7 on target), scoring roughly every 131 minutes. His 15% conversion rate and five missed big chances suggest he’s not the most clinical finisher; the importance of this match will likely see him fired up to convert his opportunities. Copa 2024 betting odds for likely scorers place as the most likely to score at any time with odds of 2.95 (2/1).
