Betting tips United States vs Uruguay

Children's Mercy Park, Kansas City, plays host to an international friendly on Sunday as the United States takes on Uruguay.

Two nations bound for this winter´s World Cup in Qatar, an intriguing contest can be expected in Kansas City with the US coming into this match on the back of a comfortable 3:0 win at home to Morocco on Wednesday while Uruguay also picked up a 3:0 win against Mexico in Arizona on Thursday evening. 

The US have been in great form at home, winning each of their last 8 matches while they have not lost on home soil in any of their previous 23 fixtures since a 3:0 loss to Mexico in 2019 and they will fancy their chances of giving the visiting Uruguayans plenty of problems on Sunday.

Uruguay comes into this fixture seemingly having turned a corner with 5 successive victories coming in the back of 5 games without a win. Uruguay also kept a clean sheet in each of those 4 victories however they have not beaten the US in two previous friendlies including their most recent, a 1:1 draw back in 2019.

Ultimately, this looks a close call on paper with just 2 places separating these nations in the FIFA World Rankings with the Uruguayans in 13th and the US in 15th. 

Of course, with the US so strong at home, and Uruguay in resurgent form, we anticipate an entertaining contest and while the stats do not necessarily back up the BTTS pick, both sides have plenty of attacking quality and given their winning form, an entertaining and keenly contested fixture is expected.

As such, we´re taking BTTS in this friendly with the visitors' favourites and likely to hit the target however, the states suggest the US  are usually capable of hitting the target, a feat they have achieved in each of their last 23 home matches.
