Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 12.30am BST (on Friday). There will be no live coverage in the United Kingdom. In the United States, Fox Sports 1 USA will provide live coverage.


It is a must win tie for Uruguay as a defeat on Thursday will end their chances of making it to the quarter-final. They are in this situation after suffering a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Mexico in the first match.

Diego Godin's 74th minute goal did not have any impact as they conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes, which resulted in their defeat. Oscar Tabarez will be looking for nothing less than a win when his side play their second match of the tournament,

Venezuela, on the other hand come into this fixture after a narrow 1-0 victory over Jamaica. A win over Uruguay will assure them a place in the last eight of the 2016 Copa America.
