Argentina vs Uruguay Predictions and Betting Tips
Having played goalless draws in their first game of this international break, both Argentina and Uruguay would be keen on stealing points off each other on Monday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Both sides clashed in the Copa America in June with the eventual champions picking up a 1-0 victory. This stretched their unbeaten run in this fixture to five games.
Both sides looking to get back to winning ways
Argentina were hard-on favourites to win in their first game of this international break against Paraguay. They were dominant all through the game on Friday, however, Antony Silva's performance in goal for the Paraguayans trumped all their efforts as both sides had to share the spoils. Dropped points here mean they are now eight points behind league leaders in Brazil, although both sides have a game in hand.
Uruguay, just like their opponents, played a goalless draw in their own Matchday 10 game at home against Colombia. With 16 points from these 10 games, they're well into the automatic qualification spot in 4th place. They head into this game unbeaten since their penalty shootout loss to Friday's opponents in the Copa America tournament. Would their unbeaten run still be intact after they pay a visit to the South American champions?

Argentina vs Uruguay Prediction: 2-1
Argentina's profligacy in front of goal hindered them from picking up maximum points last time out against Paraguay. Uruguay would certainly prove to be tougher opponents with the front two of Suarez and Cavani up top, however, we see the Albiceleste getting back to winning ways on Monday.
