Uruguay vs Chile LIVE Football Match Score June 22/6/2021
The Copa America 2021 returns to the fold with another round of intriguing matches as Chile lock horns with Uruguay in an important Group B match at the Arena Pantanal on Monday. Both teams have been inconsistent in recent weeks and will need to win this game. Chile held their ground in their first match of Copa America 2021 and secured an important point against Argentina. La Roja were well below their best on the day, however, and will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.
Uruguay, on the other hand, failed to find their equaliser against Argentina and slumped to a 1-0 defeat after an early goal from Guido Rodriguez. The Uruguayans have excellent players in their ranks and will need to be at their best in this match. Uruguay have an impressive historical record against Chile and have won 46 matches out of a total of 82 games played between the two teams. Chile have managed only 19 victories against Uruguay and will need to step up to the plate in this fixture.
Guido Rodriguez opened the scoring after 13 minutes, and Tabarez’s men were unable to level the game, returning empty-handed as a result.
That was their fourth straight game without a win in all competitions, after previously being held to disappointing goalless draws by both Paraguay and Venezuela in World Cup Qualifiers at the beginning of June.
Having come into the tournament as one of the favourites to go far, La Celeste will be desperate to put their first points on the board on Monday to quickly cement themselves at the top end of group B, as they look to book their place in the final eight with wins from their final three group matches.
Their opponents come into the game having had a strong start to the group stage, and they can confirm their qualification to the knockout stage with a win.
