Uruguay faces Colombia this Thursday in the Gran Parque Central and Maestro Tabárez would maintain the tactical scheme of the last games with a single center-forward and two creators at his side.
Some things are clear in the Tabárez team, such as the certainty that Fernando Muslera will occupy the goal and also the bottom line seems immovable with Nahitan Nández, José María Giménez, Diego Godín and Matías Viña.
In the midfield, the three names that begin to be repeated by heart and that combine good handling of the ball, brand, intensity and dynamism: Matías Vecino, Rodrigo Bentancur and Federico Valverde.
The doubts could appear in the attack of the Celeste. Luis Suárez would lead the offensive on his return to the National Team, and Giorgian De Arrascaeta would repeat as a link between midfielders and forwards, turned on the right. But, although it could be presumed that Edinson Cavani, who is also returning, would accompany the Pistolero to form the usual duo, Tabárez rehearsed with Brian Rodríguez as a left winger.
The Los Angeles FC player had a good performance in the last triple date showing mobility, ability to face rivals and open spaces in defenses, so he would remain within the blue eleven, leaving Manchester United’s Matador on the bench for this first match against Colombia.
Therefore, Uruguay’s most probable team for this Thursday would be: Muslera, Nández, Giménez, Godín, Viña, Vecino, Bentancur, Valverde, De Arrascaeta, Rodríguez and Suárez.
The game starts at 20:00 and will be played in the Great Central Park. The referee will be Jesús Valenzuela, assisted by Lubin Torrealba and Tulio Moreno, and the fourth referee will be Alexis Herrera, all from Venezuela. In the VAR will be the Peruvian Víctor Carrillo, assisted by Milcíades Saldívar, from Paraguay.
