This will be a must-win game for both sides. The hosts are desperate for victories following a weak start to their campaign, having won just once in six rounds. Ricardo Gareca's boys come from a fourth-place finish in the 2021 Copa America and hope to build from there to bounce back.
Meanwhile, La Celeste are slightly in a better spot than Peru. Oscar Washington Tabarez's men lacked consistency at the beginning of the World Cup Qualifiers and suffered an early exit in the continental cup.
