Uruguay caused a bit of an upset over the weekend by knocking out hosts and favourites Argentina in the quarter finals and come into their semi final as 5/6 favs with Stan James to beat Peru.
Peru themselves unexpectedly made their first semi since 1997 by beating Colombia in extra time and have them at 4/1 to progress in 90 minutes, though Sergio Markarian’s men may have to take their chances in added time.
These two drew the opening game of Group C, William Hill quoting 12/5 for another stalemate in La Plata, and with both teams only winning one out of four games at the tournament, 12/5 could be the price to follow.
Cagey football is likely to be the order of the day, a repeat 1-1 show is 6/1 with Skybet while Betfred have 15/2 about a 0-0 affair. Either way, two goals or less during 90 minutes is 4/7 with bet365. Another nervy penalties win for Uruguay is tempting at 10/1 (Paddy Power).
Main hitmen Luis Sanchez (Uruguay) and Jose Pablo Guerrero (Peru) are 9/2 and 17/2 respectively with Unibet to open the scoring.
