Introduction – Uruguay vs Venezuela prediction 2023
In the third round of the South American Under-20s, Uruguay and Venezuela will face off in another match valid for Group B of this first phase of the competition. The game will be played at the Estadio Deportivo Cali, located in the city of Palmira, Colombia (the host country of the tournament), and has a capacity of around 52,000 fans.
Uruguay and Venezuela last faced each other in this category in October 2022, in the South American Under-20s Games. In the match, Uruguay came out on top and defeated the opponents 3-1. It was the first win for the country’s team against the rivals since 2016, when the team had won a friendly against Venezuela.
Uruguay made a more than convincing debut in this South American Under-20s Championship. After having a round off in the first round, the team beat Chile 3-0 in the previous round. With this, along with Brazil, the Uruguayans are the only ones with 100% success rate in the competition, so far.
Thanks to this victory, even with one game less, Uruguay is in second place in Group B of the competition, with three points. Only Ecuador, which has one win and one draw, is ahead of Uruguay. In addition, it is worth noting that, also along with Brazil, the country’s team has the best defense of the tournament, as it has not yet conceded goals.
On the other side of the match, in the opposite situation to Uruguay, is Venezuela. Also with only one match played, like the rival, Venezuela is in last place in Group B, still without adding points. This is because in the first round the country’s team was beaten by Bolivia 1-0 (in the second round, the team had a round off).
Also on the opposite path to the Uruguayans, Venezuela is the only team in the competition that has not yet scored goals. That is, we will have the meeting of a defense that has already shown strength, against an offensive system that did not give much confidence in the debut. To make matters worse, if they do not manage to score in this match, the Venezuelans are in a very delicate situation in the fight for classification, already.
Uruguay vs Venezuela prediction 2023
Given all that was mentioned above, it is clear that Uruguay comes with a lot of favoritism for this match. The team made a beautiful debut and will face a rival that, in theory, lost to the weaker opponent of the group in the first round (Bolivia). So, the scenario is quite favorable to the Uruguayans.
Despite all this, the main betting houses have been offering interesting odds for a Uruguay victory. Therefore, our main suggestion to invest is in the Uruguayan victory.
It may also be interesting to bet on the ‘no’ option of the both teams score market. Uruguay, after all, did not concede goals in the first match, just as Venezuela did not manage to score in the debut. In other words, we have a very advantageous confrontation for the Uruguayan defense, at first glance.
