The Uruguay vs. Japan match will be played on Friday, June 21, at the Gremio Arena, Porto Alegre. This is the second round match Copa America group C, between the second-placed Uruguay, which won three points, and the fourth-placed Japan, which has no points at the moment. In the first round, Uruguay defeated Ecuador by 4:0, while Japan was defeated against Chile by 4:0 as well.
These teams played five times against each other so far. Uruguay won three matches, Japan had one win, while one match ended in a draw. We usually see many goals when these two teams play. In four out of those five matches, we saw over 3.5 goals, while only once we saw under 2.5 goals. The last match they played was the highest scoring, with Japan winning 4:3 in the end.
Uruguay started the tournament in the best possible way and they probably need only a point or a two to qualify for the knockout phase of the competition. Of course, their self confidence is really high at the moment, and they will try to beat Japan and secure one of the two places on the top of the table. Latest matches: Uruguay
