Uruguay vs Chile 17 November 2015: World Cup Qualifier Preview and Predictions
17 November 2015/ 2000 ET
Uruguay take on Chile in a World Cup Qualifier on Tuesday night. This match has all the makings to be a classic since both teams have quality and they both want 3 points. This game has plenty of relevance to both teams since they are in the top 5 and will want to establish their spot their even after Argentina make a comeback.
Uruguay go into this match after a few wins and with players such as Luiz Suarez who are full of confidence after leading Barcelona. This team has exceptional attacking quality and will want to keep it by out-scoring the South American Champions. The Uruguayans will also be at home and this may be a decisive factor especially since both teams are pretty evenly matched up and the game is in South American where home ground advantage is massive. These factors probably make Uruguay favorites going into the encounter.

Chile on the other hand are also a very good team and they proved in by becoming the champions of South America earlier this year. This team will be away from home which will make it hard for them to win but they have a solid defense and have superstars such as Alexis Sanchez who will try to create some magic in order to give them a shot at taking home the 3 points.
This match will be very exciting and I will be watching it for sure. I think as results go, Uruguay at home are going to be too good and they will take the 3 points from this encounter. I think this match may also be high scoring and with the line set at 2.5 goals, I think taking the over might be good value. This match will be great to watch and I will be putting my money on an Uruguayan win.
