BTTS - Yes

We saw both teams score in two of the previous three meetings between USA and Uruguay

USA and Uruguay will meet in the last round of group stages at Copa America 2024 on Tuesday, 2 July.

Can the USA get the win they need to increase their chances of getting to the next stage or will Uruguay build on their impressive form in this match too? Read our USA vs Uruguay prediction to find that out.

USA vs Uruguay prediction: Both teams to score in a close duel

Key stats

  • Both USA and Uruguay have scored at least once in each of their matches at Copa America so far.
  • We saw both teams score in three of the previous four USA's matches across the board.
  • The last two duels between USA and Uruguay have ended without winners.

Correct score prediction: USA 1-1 Uruguay

With the last two duels between USA and Uruguay ending in draws, one of which has ended 1-1, we can see that being the case on Tuesday as well.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bookies without a clear favourite

  • HOME: 6/4 (2.50) – 40.00%
  • DRAW: 11/5 (3.20) – 31.30%
  • AWAY: 15/8 (2.88) – 34.80%

Looking at these USA vs Uruguay odds, it's clear that the bookmakers expect a close match. That being said, the USA are the expected winners by a small margin.

This is a bit surprising given that Uruguay have been clearly the best team in the group in the first two rounds, but they've also pretty much secured the top spot in the group, while the USA basically have to win this match.

Last five H2Hs: A very close matchup

USA preview: On the brink of elimination

As the hosts of the tournament and with the USA Copa America squad looking good on paper, the United States national team was one of the favourites to at least get out of the group. Things seemed to be going according to those expectations after a win in the first round over Bolivia, but a loss to Panama in the second round puts the USA in a rough spot.

While they can go through with a draw if Panama don't beat Bolivia, or even with a minimal loss if Bolivia don't beat Panama by a huge difference, there is also the possibility that the USA don't get to the next stage with a win, if Panama beats Bolivia and they end up with a better goal difference.

Tim Weah will miss this match through suspension after being sent off against Panama.

Predicted lineup: Horvath (GK), Scally, Richards, Ream, A. Robinson, McKennie, Musah, Reyna, Aaronson, Balogun & Pulisic

Uruguay preview: Already in the next stage?

With two wins in their matches against Panama and Bolivia, Uruguay are almost in the next stage already. The only thing that could prevent them getting out of this group is a loss to the USA and Panama beating Bolivia, with both of those teams ending with a better goal difference. However, Uruguay currently have a goal difference of +7, so it would take a miracle for them to end up behind USA and Panama in the end.

Predicted lineup: Rochet (GK), Nandez, R. Araujo, Olivera, Olaza, Ugarte, Valverde, Pellistri, De Arrascaeta, M. Araujo & Nunez

Player to watch: Christian Pulisic

In a tough situation like this, the USA will look towards their captain and top scorer to help them get the important win, so we're going with Pulisic as our player to watch in this match.

After notching a goal and assist in the first round against Bolivia, Pulisic was quiet against Panama. Can he find his best form against Uruguay once again?
