Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 8pmBST. Live coverage of the match will be available on Premier Sports.

Overview

The clash between Uruguay and Paraguay will be their last match of the group stages. The winner of this tie will make it to the quarter final of this edition of the Copa America, while the losing team will be eliminated.

Uruguay suffered a 1-0 defeat against Argentina in the previous fixture as Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero's goal was the difference between the two sides. The last result has seen them sit third on the table with three points.

Oscar Tabarez's side are one point behind first and second place Argentina and Paraguay respectively. A draw is sufficient for Paraguay to qualify for the next round of the tournament, while their Saturday's opponents need nothing less than a win.

On the other hand, a victory for Uruguay will then force Paraguay to depend on Jamaica to defeat Argentina in the other Group B fixture scheduled later on Saturday. A defeat for the World Cup finalists will see both Paraguay and Argentina share the same points and the team with the better goal difference record will progress to the next round.

However, a defeat for Paraguay and Jamaica will see Argentina and Uruguay make it to the last eight of the 2015 Copa America.
