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.


  • Uruguay is in a series of four wins. In those four matches, they scored 14 and didn't concede a single goal! In their last six matches at least one team didn't score a goal. In seven out of the last nine games, we saw over 2.5 goals.
  • Japan was defeated three times in their last three games. Prior to that, they were in a series of 11 matches without a defeat. At least one team failed to score in their last five matches.


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.

Japan was defeated in the first round by 4:0 and that probably ended their hopes on this tournament. However, they are known as a team that never surrenders, so we should wait for a while to see a rise up and they will definitely try to win the upcoming game.
