The 2014 World Cup qualifying playoffs are under way, and one of the more intriguing matches that will take place will be between Jordan and Uruguay.

It's a match between two teams with very different backgrounds: One has recently made a deep run in the World Cup, while the other is in the middle of a historical run.  While neither team is a total powerhouse, it will certainly be an exciting game to watch.

Below is the complete viewing information for the game, followed by a breakdown of both teams and a prediction for how this game will end.

Jordan

It's been an absolute dream run for Jordan.  Never have they gone this far into the World Cup qualifiers, and they're now even closer to booking a trip to Brazil.

The Jordanians are coming off of an incredible shootout win over Uzbekistan in a playoff after finishing third in their group standings.  They scored 10 points in the group stage, putting up just seven goals and allowing 16.  Overall, they've won eight of their 18 matches in Asian qualifying.

Ahmad Ibrahim has been busy throughout qualifying, playing in all 18 matches and scoring seven goals.  Meanwhile, Hassan Mahmoud, who played in just 10 matches, had seven goals as well.

If Jordan aren't able to advance, it will still have been a magical run for the team.  They've gone deeper than they ever have before, and that's enough for them to consider this run a major success.

 

Uruguay

After reaching the semifinals of the 2010 tournament, Uruguay are looking to have that same level of success in 2014.

It wasn't the best run in the group stage, however, as they finished in fifth.  Uruguay have won seven of their 16 matches, scoring 25 goals and with opponents scoring 25 against them as well.  Still, despite the struggles in the group stage, they're expected to grab a spot for the World Cup finals.

For Uruguay, their best player has to be Liverpool's Luis Suarez.  He's been a machine when playing, scoring 11 goals in 14 matches, although he has also drawn four yellow cards.  Edinson Cavani has been a productive striker as well, scoring five goals of his own.

They may not be as exciting a team as they were in 2010, but Uruguay are still a great group of players that have the potential to head to Brazil next year.

 

Prediction 

While the run for Jordan has been truly magical, I don't expect that magic to translate to a win in the first leg.

The defense will certainly be focusing on Suarez and Cavani, but the two of them are simply going to be too much for Jordan.  I expect Uruguay to come up with the win, and in fairly dominating fashion.

Prediction: Uruguay 3, Jordan 1
