Uruguay is a very solid and Balanced team with many good players, and these players also play at various clubs at the highest level. They are the old contestant of Copa America and they have a golden history of football. The team has a very strong attack/forward with players like Edison Cavani, Luis Suarez, Maxi Gomez and so on. In the defense, they have players like Gaston Silva, Giovanni Gonzalez and more; which makes the defense very hard to get through for opposite team players. In addition, their midfield is also quite strong with Martias Vecino, Diego 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.

In the FIFA Ranking 2019, Chile is now standing at the 5th position and their current performance is also respectable. Now looking at their last ten matches, they have won 7 of them and 2 was drawn and lost one due to bad luck. In the upcoming match against Uruguay, they surely would want to win the match in order to qualify for the next round. Famous players of their team are Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sanchez, and Vargas; and they have got a goal regularly which would give them extra confidence to win the matches in Copa America. The team is very solid and well balanced altogether. In addition, they are the consecutive Copa America winner of 2015 and 2016, and they have a very good football history. Therefore, Chile is one of the teams that has a high chance of winning Copa America in 2020.
Prediction: Uruguay 1-2 Chile
In football any team can win, in the game of 90 minutes; both teams are worthy and have the potential to win the game. But in my opinion, Chile is going to win the upcoming match against Uruguay by 2-1.
