These two traditional giants of South American football, have started the Copa America very slowly, but seem to be finding form at exactly the right moment. It could get very expensive to continue opposing Brazil, but if you think the odds are wrong, what else can you do ?

I have been very impressed by a couple of Uruguay players, especially Cristian Rodriguez, nicknamed the "onion", because he makes opponents cry ..... classic !

Now that we are at the business end of the tournament and are left with the cream, I feel that we can expect the goals to dry up a little. I certainly do not expect any team remaining in the tournament to roll over and die once they go behind, as several countries have in recent matches.

Uruguay have an excellent recond against Brazil and have not lost in 5 very competitive matches this millenium. This one could go the distance.

4.5 points Uruguay +1 ball 1.78 asian line.

Good Luck.
