Match Preview

After successive defeats to Mexico (GF 0, GA 4), the United States meet Uruguay for the first time since May 2002, and do so on the back of seven straight matches where they have won or lost one half by a one-goal margin (W5, L2).
The Americans have been in the habit of growing into victories, rather than punishing opponents from the off. This is evidenced by the fact that three of the wins in the above sequence saw them win the first half 1-0, and then go on to claim victory by a margin of more than 1.5 goals.
Unlike their opponents, Uruguay are flying high in FIFA’s top five, and last lost to opponents outside it back in October 2018 (3-4 vs Japan). If including China Cup matches, Uruguay are unbeaten overall this year (W6, D2).
Two friendly victories sit amongst the two-time world champions’ unbeaten run of 2019. Both matches contained precisely three match goals, with Uruguay (at least) scoring first and third both times, with the final match goal arriving beyond the 75th minute on each occasion.
Players to watch: American forward Joshua Sargent missed a penalty vs Mexico at the weekend. At club level, his three prior Bundesliga goals have been the third or fourth in matches producing over 3.5 goals.
Uruguay forward Jonathan Rodríguez scored the late winner in Uruguay’s last victory. Three of his last five club goals have served to put his team on the day 1-0 up.
Stat attack: Each of the United States’ last three friendlies have ended in defeats ‘to-nil’ (GF 0, GA 7).
Half (three) of the last six conceded goals in that group came in the 16th-30th minute period.
Uruguay’s last two victories have seen the winning goal arrive beyond the 80th minute.
They have also scored in the 61st-75th minute period in each of their last two defeats to opponents outside FIFA’s current top-five.
