Uruguay to Win

The main reason for this prediction is the obvious difference in quality between the two teams. Uruguay is one of the best national teams in the world, so they have an advantage when playing against a team that never made it to a World Cup. Of course, that is often not enough and Venezuela has the ability to surprise Uruguay, as they did in one of their last three games. But Uruguay enters this game with a sense of urgency and we expect them to deliver.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Two of the last three head-to-head duels between these two national teams have gone under 2.5 total goals, and we expect this trend to continue. That being said, both teams have gone over 2.5 total goals in three of their five matches in the WC Qualifiers, but Uruguay has a good defence and we expect them to play cautiously and wait for their opportunity to pounce instead of rushing to score a goal.

Both Teams to Score – No

As we already said, we don’t expect to see many goals in this game, so we don’t expect to see both teams scoring a goal either. After all, the last three duels between Venezuela and Uruguay have ended without both teams scoring, so we are hoping that this can happen once again. Furthermore, three of the five games in the WC Qualifiers played by Venezuela have ended without both teams scoring, as did three of the five Uruguay matches.

Venezuela vs Uruguay preview: Can Uruguay move into the Top 4?

The WC Qualifiers in South America are heating up and the upcoming duel between Venezuela and Uruguay is important for both teams. With that in mind, let’s check the teams in more detail.

Venezuela

The Venezuelan team has never played in a World Cup and it seems unlikely they will manage to qualify this time either. With one win and four losses in the first five games of the WC Qualifiers, Venezuela is looking at another unsuccessful campaign. However, their only win in the qualifiers came against Chile and that was a huge surprise, so it’s still a bit early to rule Venezuela out completely. At the very least, they can disrupt the plans of some other teams.

Uruguay

Two-time world champions haven’t missed a World Cup since they failed to qualify for the 2006 WC in Germany, but they could be facing a tough time in these qualifiers if they don’t improve their form. The team is currently in fifth place, with two wins, two losses, and a draw, which would force them to play in the inter-confederation play-offs. Of course, there are many games left to play before that happens and Uruguay is certainly one of the main favourites for the four direct spots in the 2022 World Cup.
