Chile v Uruguay: Stats suggest easy win over La Celeste

Hosts Chile put in a dominant performance over Bolivia last time out and look set to build on that momentum in their quarter-final meeting with Uruguay.

The defending champions were held by Paraguay last time out and had to settle for third place in their group.

With 10 goals already in the tournament Chile are a force to be reckoned with and the stats suggest the hosts should get past La Celeste with relative ease.

The absence of Luis Suarez in attack has been telling for Uruguay with Oscar Tabarez’s men scoring just two goals in the competition so far.

Edinson Cavani has failed to fill the void left by the Barcelona man and barring a stark upturn in form against the hosts, Chile look the most likely side to proceed.

However, if the last edition of this tournament is anything to go by, a repeat of Chile’s 5-0 mauling of Bolivia is not on the cards.

The 2011 Copa quarter-finals were all tight affairs with three of the four matches finishing as draws and no side winning by more than a single goal.

All this evidence points to a narrow win for Chile but don’t take our word for it. Here’s the Professor with even more insight.



  • Chile have won three of their last four matches, keeping clean sheets in all of these wins
  • Seven of Chile’s last eight wins were without conceding
  • Eight of Uruguay’s last 10 games had Under 2.5 goals
  • At least one team has failed to score in 10 of the 16 Copa America quarter-finals since 2001
