CONMEBOL Games (South America)
Ecuador vs Colombia (Tuesday)
Ecuador comes from a huge victory against Bolivia in La Paz. Ecuador won 3-2 with goals from Beder Caicedo, Angel Mena and Carlos Gruezo. The Ecuadorians have six points after winning their last two games and now is in third place. They allow 1.6 goals per game.
Last week, Colombia suffered a historic loss at home against Uruguay. Colombia lost 3-0 and Yerry Mina got a red card, which means he can’t play against Ecuador. Colombia owns one of the best offensive units with James Rodriguez, Luis Muriel, Duvan Zapata and Luis Suarez. They come in at seventh place with four points, and they are also allowing 1.6 goals per game, which means you can expect some fireworks here.
Colombia lead the all-time series against Ecuador with a 22-11-12 record. Colombia have scored 52 goals while Ecuador have scored 38.
Pick and Final Score Prediction: Draw 2-2
Uruguay vs Brazil (Tuesday)
Without a doubt, this is the Game of the Week.
As we already mentioned, Uruguay comes from a huge victory against Colombia (on the road). Edinson Cavani, Luis Suarez and Darwin Nunez scored the goals. Suarez is the tournament’s top scorer with four goals. He has scored in all Uruguay’s games, which means he’s on fire! The Uruguayans are in fourth place with six points.
Brazil remains undefeated and has scored 10 goals (3.3 goals per game) and allowed just two. Neymar is one of the tournament’s top scorers with three goals, and he has more help than ever thanks to Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus.
Brazil lead the all-time series against Uruguay with a 36-20-20 record. As expected, Brazil have scored many more goals than Uruguay (136-97).
This is going to be a close one and you can expect a physical game.
Pick and Final Score Prediction: Draw 1-1

So far, Peru hasn’t won (0-1-2). It is in eighth place with one point, four goals-for and eight against. Last week they lost against Chile (2-0) despite having 52% of ball possession. Peru hasn’t been playing well, but Andre Carrillo comes in as one of the tournament’s top scorers with three goals.

|Spain||PK -135||+145||2 ½||1 ½|
|Germany||PK +105||+185||2 ½||1|
Last week, Spain drew 1-1 against Switzerland with a last-minute goal from Gerard Moreno. Sergio Ramos missed two penalty shots and that’s why Spain needs to beat Germany if its wants to move on into the UEFA Nations League Final Four.

Pick and Final Score Prediction: Draw 2-2.
Poland vs Netherlands (Wednesday)
Italy leads League A Group 1 with nine points, but Poland and Netherlands still have the chance to finish at the top and to move on into the Final Four. Poland and the Netherlands both need to win. Poland will need Italy to lose, while Netherlands needs Italy to lose or draw; the Italians play against Bosnia and they haven’t lost so far (2-3-0). Last week, Poland lost 2-0 against Italy. Jacek Goralski was expelled, so he can’t play.
Netherlands beat Bosnia 3-1 with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum (2) and Memphis Depay. Both Poland and Netherlands average one goal per game despite having huge names such as Robert Lewandowski and Luuk de Jong on their rosters.
The last Poland vs Netherlands game ended with a Netherlands victory (1-0). Steven Bergwijn scored the goal.
Pick and Final Score Prediction: Netherlands to win 1-0.
Belgium vs Denmark (Wednesday)
Everyone thought England would be the team that would fight for the Group 2 (League A) first place with Belgium, but surprise, surprise! It’s Denmark. Belgium will play host to Denmark with a ticket into the Final Four at stake while England will play host to Iceland for nothing.
Last week, Belgium beat England 2-0 with goals from Youri Tielemans and Dries Mertens. Belgium average 2.4 goals per game. Denmark beat Iceland 2-1 with two penalty goals from Christian Eriksen, one at the last minute. Denmark average 1.2 goals per game.
