My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

Uruguay currently rank 15th in the world. The team's recent state shows signs of decline. They have suffered losses from Argentina and Brazil respectively in the past two world preliminaries, which temporarily rank 5th in the group. The home advantage of the team is relatively obvious for having been unbeaten in the past three home games and winning 2 of them. Suárez, Pereiro and Valverde have all scored goals recently and performed well. In the first 12 qualifiers, Uruguay have scored 14 goals and showed fierce offense.
Argentina currently rank 6th in the world. The team won Peru by one goal in the last qualifying game. At present, they rank 2nd in the group with 25 points, second only to Brazil. It's no problem to qualify for the world cup. The team's recent state is quite stable. They have been unbeaten in nearly 10 matches and won 8 of them. Martínez, Messi and de Paul have scored four goals in total recently. The team's away combat ability is excellent for being unbeaten in nearly 10 away games.
This event is a contest between the 2nd and 5th teams in the table. According to the rules, the top four in South America can be promoted directly, and the 5th can only play in the play offs. Uruguay will try to grab points from Argentina. But the team won only one game against Argentina in nearly 10 times, which was psychologically at a disadvantage. Argentina's performance in the past two years is so perfect that they haven't lost for a long time. Therefore, Argentina are expected to take all three points in this game.
Total: under 2/2.5 goals
