Canada qualified for the World Cup for the second time in its history thanks to an excellent performance in the CONCACAF qualifiers, finishing ahead of regional giants such as Mexico and the United States.
Since the end of its qualifying campaign, Canada has played three games, winning two and losing one. However, none of their opponents in those matches are at Uruguay’s level, as the victories were against Qatar and Curacao, while the defeat was against Honduras, so this match will serve to measure how prepared they are to face a real challenge.
Probable lineup (3-4-1-2): Maxime Crepeau, Alistair Johnston, Scott Kennedy, Derek Cornelius, Junior Hoilett, Mark-Anthony Kaye, Stephen Eustaquio, Sam Adekugbe, Alphonso Davies, Jonathan David, Iké Ugbo.
Uruguay, two-time World Cup champions, are preparing for their fifteenth appearance in the World Cup after a difficult CONMEBOL qualifying campaign, although they managed to close with four consecutive victories to finish a comfortable third place.
Since then, the Uruguayan national team has played four friendly matches in preparation for the World Cup. Their record in those games was positive, with two wins, one draw and one loss, the last one in the most recent one against Iran by 0-1,and will hope to recover on this occasion.
Probable lineup (4-3-3): Fernando Muslera, Guillermo Varela, Agustín Rogel, Sebastián Caceres, Mathias Olivera; Federico Valverde, Giorgian de Arrascaeta, Lucas Torreira, Facundo Pellistri, Luis Suárez, Darwin Núñez.
The fact that this match will be played in a neutral stadium will make it a game for either side, but what seems guaranteed is a low-scoring encounter.
Uruguay’s good run in the CONMEBOL qualifiers was due in large part to a great defense that allowed goals in only one of four matches, and in subsequent friendlies they maintained that level by allowing only one goal in four games.
For their part, Canada have scored seven goals in their last three international matches, but none of them came against a team as good as Uruguay, so they could have a tough time getting close to their opponents’ goal.
Prediction: Under (CAN 0 – URU 1)
