Our match prediction:
Uruguay will host the game against Chile in the 4th round of the World Cup qualification in Montevideo. In the first 3 games Uruguay managed to win the first two and lost the last game against Ecuador which is known for being a very difficult game. Chile on the other hand won the first 2 games as well and tie 1-1 against Colombia last Thursday night. Traditionally Uruguay and Chile are very equal to each other; both teams manage to beat each other and often games end in a draw. Without Luis Suarez we predict this match to end in a draw. Uruguay and Chile's starting eleven are very balanced, the form of the day will be decisive.
Highligted Player (Godin):
Diego Godin is considered one of the best defenders in the history of Uruguayan football. The Atletico Madrid centre back played for Cerro and Nacional in the Uruguayan national championship between 2003 and 2007 and in August, 2017 he signed a deal with La Liga side Villarreal. Godin made 91 league appearances for the Yellow Submarine and on 4 August he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a contract with Atletico Madrid. The Uruguayan defender won the 2013/2014 La Liga trophy with los Rojiblancos, while making it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2014, 2016). He won the Europa League trophy in the 2011/2012 season with Atletico Madrid as well. Speaking of his international career, Godin clinched the 2011 Copa America trophy with Uruguay. Despite playing as a centre back, Diego Godin often scores after set pieces and you should have in mind that he scored eight goals for Diego Simeone’s team in the 2013/2014 season (all competitions).
