Uruguay vs South Korea match prediction

South Korea have failed to score in their past two meetings with Uruguay and their most recent clash with a South American side was a three goal loss to Argentina in the group stage.

Uruguay have been very solid down back and they have some solid form in each game during the group stage and we fancy Uruguay to come out on top here.
