Predictions and Best Odds for Uruguay vs Nicaragua

Uruguay will be the overwhelming favorite against Nicaragua, a team that never participated in any of the major tournaments in the world.

Both Teams to Score – No

It goes without saying that Uruguay will be the favorite in this matchup, especially because they are playing in front of their fans. However, it will be vital for the home side to keep their net clean as they prepare for more important games that will follow suit in a few months. Uruguay has played three out of the last five encounters without both teams scoring a goal, and all the matches were played at the last World Cup. In two of those outings, Uruguay was the team that failed to score. For Nicaragua, they had four straight BTTS games, but those matches were against far inferior competition than Uruguay.

Over 2.5 Goals

This is a new, younger Uruguay squad that will be tested against one of the lowest-ranked teams in the world. The host in this Uruguay vs Nicaragua prediction will be looking to add some goalscoring touch and take the game out of the visiting team's hand rather quickly. With no Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, there will be plenty of players looking to replace their goalscoring output. Uruguay only played one over 2.5 goals match out of the last five outings while Nicaragua had three out of the past five matches with more than two goals scored.

Uruguay vs Nicaragua Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

Uruguay

A new era is starting for Uruguay football national team with the legendary Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani perhaps already playing their last matches in international football. They are missing from the squad that will face Nicaragua and Cuba in a couple of friendly games this month.

Possible lineup: Rochet, Vinna, Varela, Piquerez, J. Rodriguez, Carballo. B. Rodriguez, Torres, Pellistri, Rossi, Canobbio.

Nicaragua

There isn't much to know about the Nicaraguan football team. They have never played in one of the major competitions in the world and are usually far from even being able to qualify for a big tournament. These kinds of matches are good experience builders for a team that competes in the CONCACAF region. The team will play three matches in June, and actually, they have already played one against Panama losing 3-2.

Possible lineup: Lopez, Rodriguez, Reyes, Fletes, Perez, Arteaga, Serapio, Medina, Hernandez, Coronel Martinez, Talavera.

Player to Watch: Facundo Pellistri

There are a lot of new, young players invited to join the Uruguay national team for a couple of friendly games in June, and these matches are a good opportunity for some of them to experience regular action. Facundo Pellistri is considered a valuable asset for the future of Uruguay football. He plies his trade for Manchester United, and even though he is still a long way from having an impact, the future is bright for the 21-year-old right-wing player.

He already has eleven caps for his country, but he lacks goals, and games against Nicaragua and Cuba could be the opportunity he was waiting for to finally break that barrier and score his first international goal. Pellistri mostly featured for United's reserve team gaining some experience, but he is destined to have a much bigger impact next season.
