Chile’s run so far in Copa America 2015

Chile from the day one was attacking, lethal and high-pressing side consistently getting the goals in all three matches of their group stage. After demolishing Bolivia with a 5-0 score, Chile has now scored 10 goals already, having conceded only 2. They are the only team looking fit and fast all-around the field. In one hand Varagas, Vidal and Sanchez are destroying opponent’s defence and in other hand Bravo is looking like a wall and emerging match by match under the bar. Chile topped their group, not only with the highest number of goals scored in the Copa America 2015 group stage, but also is six goals ahead of the second highest scoring team Argentina. There is no doubt till date Chile has been the best team in Copa America 2015 group stages.

Uruguay’s run so far in Copa America 2015

Not being up to the par has helped Uruguay somewhat. Their group Champion Argentina is facing the un-predictable Colombia, group runners up Paraguay is up against the five times world cup winners Brazil, while they are placed against Chile, even qualifying from a third spot. Though Chile this time, would not be that easy as opponent. In fact, Uruguay needs to worry much, they way the host nation is performing. Absence of Luis Suarez in the front is making a big difference in Uruguay’s attack as they have only been able to score twice till date. Edinson Cavani has not yet netted a single ball. However, Uruguay is indeed in need of offering a hard fight, in order to survive the Chile vs Uruguay match of Copa America 2015 Quarter-Final.cristian rodriguez

Chile’s Strategy against Uruguay in Chile vs Uruguay quarter-final match preview

Well, the team has a simple theory that is not to change the way they are playing. Chile’s Copa America journey till date has been pretty same. Attack, and attack with a clear advantage on ball position. The team has a few players with electric speed. So pressing the opponent to their penalty box, along with sudden counter-attacks is the way Chile has been demolishing opponents. Against Uruguay, Chile would look to have some special marking against C.Rodriguez and Edinson Cavani the two game makers and poachers. Other than that, they need not to worry and play the same. On this vary matter Mr. Jorge Sampoli quoted

“Chile will not change its style for the quarter-finals. Playing like this is the only way to beat the big teams we will meet from here on.”

Uruguay’s Strategy against Chile in Chile vs Uruguay quarter-final match preview

Addition of Diego Godin, the captain, in deep defence would make Uruguay stand on the same way they want to play. Godin will have to lead from the deep defence to make the mid-fielders and defenders be aware of Vidal’s sudden visit to their penalty box and launching long-rangers. Sanchez and Varagas are also needed to mark closely and they must not be allowed any free space in front of them to take a free sprint. In attack, Cavani must not come down to mid-field in search for through balls. C. Rodriguez and co. should deliver Cavani enough forward passes and through balls to make him operate from the attacking third. Uruguay also needs to materialize the dead-ball situations to put pressure to the opponent.
