Will Luis Suarez get into the match?

One subject of speculations for this match is whether Uruguay’s Luis Suarez will actually play. He missed the first two games because of a hamstring injury sustained in the final days of FC Barcelona’s season.

In the their 1-0 loss to Venezuela, Suarez actually warmed up and prepared as if he was entering the game as a substitute but  team manager Oscar Tabarez did not made him play.

Suarez was seen slamming a bench canopy and flinging his boots onto the pitch in apparent rage at not being used.

If Suarez plays he will surely do so with a point to prove, according to MLS Soccer.

Will Jamaica finally get to score?

Copa America 2016 predictions and previews did not saw Jamaica advancing to the quarterfinals with Mexico and Uruguay in Group C. The results pretty much confirmed the expectations.

Jamaica has yet to score in the tournament though it had opportunities to do so. The team showed this in its match against Mexico where they fumble away several chances of scoring.

Added to this was Rodolph Austin’s 23rd-minute red card in the tournament opener against Venezuela.

Jamaica will definitely try to end up its Copa America 2016 campaign winning the match.

Final Prediction

Base on history Uruguay should win this match but a draw with Jamaica is also likely.

Finally Luis Suarez will not play.
