Brazil vs.  Uruguay - Pre-Match - October 14, 2021

(EFE) – The Brazilian team, which despite the good results remains unconvinced, will host Uruguay this Thursday in the city of Manaus with the aim of achieving a victory and getting a little closer to the final phase of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Brazil, the only team that has participated in all editions of the World Cups, leads the South American qualifiers with 28 points after ten games and has six more units than Argentina, second.

The coach, Tite, widely criticized for the difficulties that the Brazilian team has gone through in recent games, could line up as starters several of the young people who have been reserves and who when they entered the second half of the matches have been decisive, like Antony and Raphinha.

Forward Raphinha, an English Leeds player who stood out when he entered the visit to Colombia on Sunday (0-0), can occupy the usual place of Gabriel Barbosa “Gabigol”.

In defense, Tite has used Émerson Royal, from English Tottenham, as a right back in the place of Danilo and as defenders Thiago Silva, from Chelsea from London, and Lucas Veríssimo, from Benfica Lisbon, in the positions by Éder Militao and Marquinhos, respectively.

The other variant would be the entry of Antony, Ajax Amsterdam attacker, instead of Gabriel Jesús.

The homeowners have a pending match on the calendar against Argentina, while their rivals occupy the fourth position with 16 units, the last one that gives direct classification to Qatar 2022, threatened by Colombia (15), which would play the repechage, and He will face Ecuador this Thursday, also third with 16 integers.

Uruguay, which travels to Brazil this Wednesday and will arrive at night in Manaus, capital of Amazonas, faces the duel with head down after being thrashed 3-0 by Argentina on Sunday.

The technician Oscar Wáshington Tabárez could also vary the team that will be presented at the Arena da Amazonía World Cup stadium with respect to the one that fell to the Argentines in the Río de La Plata classic.

The striker Edinson Cavani, who has been used in the second half, would be from the beginning next to the striker Luis Suárez and relieving Brian Rodríguez, while Ronald Araújo, a Barcelona player, will not be due to injury. The left back Matías Viña, likewise, must be substituted.

The creative Giorgian De Arrascaeta, who was injured in the match against Colombia (0-0) and is a figure of the Brazilian Flamengo, did not manage to recover and will not face Brazil either.

It will be the first game with an audience for the Brazilian team since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, in February 2020, although capacity will be limited. Thus, the 10,000 tickets enabled for fans vaccinated against COVID-19 have already been sold out.

On matchday 13, scheduled for November 11, Uruguay will host Argentina in Montevideo and Brazil will host Colombia in Sao Paulo.
