Brazil and Uruguay face off on Thursday in a CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying showdown at Amazonia Arena. The last time these two teams faced off was in November of 2020 and Brazil was 2-0.
Brazil currently sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up 28 points in 10 games played. Brazil has won three of their last four games, and the other game ended in a draw. In the last game against Colombia, Brazil had 64 percent of the possession, but only had four shots on target, and they couldn’t find the back of the net. Over the last four games, Brazil has scored six goals while they have given up a goal. The offense hasn’t been as dominant and they need the offense to be better in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Uruguay who currently sits in 4th place in the standings having picked up 16 points. Uruguay has won two of their last four games, but they are coming off a disappointing loss in the last game. The defense really struggled against Argentina, giving up three goals, and that led to the defeat. Uruguay actually managed six shots on goal in that game, but it wasn’t enough, as they couldn’t find the back of the net. On September 5th, Uruguay scored four goals against Bolivia, but the defense still gave up two goals in that game, and they need the defense to be better in this game.
Uruguay’s defense struggled in the last game, and it’s not going to get any better in this game. Look for Brazil to run up the score, and Uruguay is going to have no answer. Brazil -1.5 at +155 is the play in this game.
