Brazil v Uruguay Live Commentary & Result, 10/15/21, WC Qualification South America

6′ Emerson is too eager to win the ball back from Cavani on the left wing – charging through the back of the striker and bringing him down to his knees. It’s a free-kick for the visitors but nothing more.

4′ Neymar cuts inside from the left and hammers a right-footed shot towards goal, which Muslera does well to contain before bringing it in.

3′ Neymar drives towards goal after a clever disguised pass down the left from Paqueta, but Coates comes across to turn it behind for a corner.

1′ Brazil get the match underway from the kick-off! 

A change of system from their 3-0 defeat to Argentina brings with it two personnel adjustments as the Celeste revert to a back four. Bentancur is in for the injured Ronald Araujo, while Cavani gets the start ahead of Rodriguez. 

Brazil make five changes from the XI that drew 0-0 with Colombia on Sunday. Ederson replaces Alisson in goal, while three changes to the defence see Silva, Verissimo and Emerson replace Eder Militao, Marquinhos and Danilo. A final swap is made on the right wing, where Gabi is dropped for Raphinha. 

URUGUAY SUBS: Martin Campana, Sergio Rochet, Joaquin Piquerez, Giovanni Gonzalez, Martin Caceres, Fernando Gorriaran, Lucas Torreira, Augustin Alvarez, Gaston Pereiro, Brian Rodriguez, Darwin Nunez, Facundo Torres. 

URUGUAY XI (4-4-2): Fernando Muslera; Nahitan Nandez, Sebastian Coates, Diego Godin, Matias Vina; Federico Valverde, Matias Vecino, Rodrigo Bentancur, Nicolas De La Cruz; Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani.

BRAZIL SUBS: Alisson, Weverton, Danilo, Marquinhos, Guilherme Arana, Everton Ribeiro, Gerson, Edenilson, Douglas Luiz, Gabriel Barbosa, Antony, Vinicius Junior.

BRAZIL XI (4-4-2): Ederson; Alex Sandro, Thiago Silva, Lucas Verissimo, Emerson; Lucas Paqueta, Fred, Fabinho, Raphinha; Neymar Jr, Gabriel Jesus.

With 15 minutes to go before kick-off, let’s take a look at how the two sides will be lining up – starting with our hosts! 

Last match was one to forget for Uruguay, who lost comprehensively to Argentina by a score of 3-0. Oscar Tabarez’s side sit in fifth position at the start of play today, which would guarantee them an opportunity to qualify for the World Cup via a play-in, though only one point separates the Celeste from Ecuador in third. 

In full-control at the top of the section, Brazil’s perfect record to start the campaign was ended last time out by Colombia, who earned a point from the Selecao after a tight 0-0 contest. Able to boast both the best defence and the most prolific attack, Tite’s side will offer a host of problems for Uruguay, who don’t have a sterling record against their hosts.
