Uruguay hosts Venezuela in round 16 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 2nd at Estadio Centenario (Montevideo)
The national team of Uruguay played very well at the last World Cups, even though it did not win some medals. Now the Sky Blues should try hard to at least go to Qatar. Currently, the Uruguayans are in fifth place in the qualification standings. After a streak of setbacks, they managed to beat the national team of Paraguay on a foreign pitch (0-1).

The Venezuelan national team looks rather weak. Yes, the team generally cannot boast of great results, but now everything is especially sad. The Red Wine is currently in last place in the standings. However, in the last game, the team confidently beat Bolivia at home (4-1).
Of course, Uruguay and Venezuela have a rich history of head-to-head confrontations. As a result, they played a lot of matches, and if you look at the last five of them, you can see that some advantage is on the side of the Uruguayan team. The Sky Blues gained two victories, while the Red Wine was stronger once, and two games ended in a draw. In the last head-to-head match, the teams did not score goals against each other. But now the situation looks completely different. The national team of Uruguay is considered a clear favorite. The Sky Blues need to hold the frame to definitely be in Qatar, which means that they will certainly not beat around the bush.
