Prediction: Uruguay 2-1 Australia
Uruguay is a very good team that takes part in Copa America and so on. They also have many good players that play in different clubs like Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona and so on. They also have a forward like Edison Cavani, Luis Suarez, and Maxi Gomez. Their defense is also hard to break through because of players like Gaston Silva, Giovanni Gonzalez and so on. Midfield is also quite strong with Martias Vecino, Giego Laxat and Gaston Pereiro. In this hard and solid line-up, it would be wrong to say that Uruguay is one of the teams that has a high chance of winning Copa America 2020.
On the other hand, Australia is also a good team and that is why they have been invited to play this edition of Copa America after Qatar. This is the second involvement of Qatar, having previously played in the 2019 edition, and this is the competition debut for Australia to take part in Copa America. In Addition, Australia is also the winner of the Asia Cup in 2015. They have themselves a pretty good that fight against any team in the Copa.
Looking at both teams, my opinion is that Uruguay is going to win the match by 2-1 against Australia.
