Uruguay vs Peru, Saturday’s match for the quarter-finals of the Copa América at the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova, in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
In one of two games this Saturday, which refers to the quarter-final round of this edition of the Copa América 2019, will face the national teams of Uruguay and Peru.
The national team of Uruguay arrives at this meeting of the quarter-final round of the Copa América 2019 looking to get back to what they had achieved eight years ago (and that was not achieved almost 20 years ago), which is to conquer again the most important team of the South American continent, entering this match with a good sequence of results (only slid against Japan, having beaten Chile and Ecuador, this one clear 4-0), being the clear favorite this time against the Peru squad.
As for the national team of Peru, this is their fourth match in this competition of the continent of South America coming with a rather unusual record, with the team having already added all possible results in the group stage, but having ended in the worst form possible to be defeated and thrashed in a clear way by the selection of Brazil by 5 balls to 0, in a meeting in which the team of Ricardo Gareca did not seem to find their way minimally and in which it picked up Brazil in a very good day.
Given that we have two teams in this match that tend to be quite disciplined from the defensive point of view, being very rigid and solid even in the tactical aspects, always very well positioned in the field and difficult to beat (this despite the clear difference of quality between Uruguay and Peru). And taking into account the elimination factor, I believe that we will have in this encounter a game very disputed in physical and tactical terms, but not so much in offensive terms since the defenses will have to be imposed to the attackers.
