Uruguay is hosting Brazil and Estadio Centenario in round 4 in the South American World Cup qualifications.
Uruguay is in great form, and they have lost only 1 of their last 9 games. So far in these qualifications, Uruguay has 2 wins and a loss, and they are in 4th place in the standings. Uruguay has scored 7 goals so far, and they are among the best offensive teams in South America. In their last game against Colombia on the road, Uruguay has had 38% of ball possession in that game, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 72% of the correct passes. Uruguay started this game with a goal in the 5th minute, and they have scored 2 more goals in the second half. Uruguay has won this match 0-3. Suarez has been in great form so far, and he is Uruguay’s leading goalscorer with 4 goals, while Cavani, Nunez, and Gomez added 1 goal each. Uruguay is playing good defensive soccer, but that doesn’t take anything from their offense because Suarez and Cavani can score against any team out there, and they are doing it. I think Uruguay is one of the best teams in South America, and I see them qualifying for the World Cup.
Brazil is on a 4-game winning streak, and they have 3 wins in these World Cup qualifications so far. Brazil has scored 10 goals while conceding only 2 goals in 3 games. With 9 points, Brazil is in first place in the World Cup qualification standings. Neymar and Firmino are leading goalscorers for Brazil with 3 goals each. In their latest match against Venezuela this past weekend, Brazil was a much better team with 73% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 89% of the correct passes. Brazil was struggling with finishing their chances in this game, but they were able to score one goal in the 67th minute of the game. Brazil has won this match 1-0. Neymar will most likely miss this game as well because of the injury, but Brazil has plenty of depth to replace him. Brazil is probably the best team in South America, they are certainly the most balanced team, and I don’t think Brazil will have any problems qualifying for the World Cup. Alongside Neymar, Coutinho will probably miss this game as well, and once they are back in the lineup. Brazil will look like a completely different team.
Uruguay hasn’t lost any of their last 6 home games, while Brazil hasn’t lost any of their last 17 games on the road. It’s clear that Uruguay can score goals, but I don’t think their defense can stop Brazil’s attack. Brazil was struggling in their last game, but I don’t think that kind of a game could happen twice in a row for Brazil.
