Our match prediction:
Brazil did not kick off their World Cup qualifying campaign in great manner, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss to Chile at Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos, but the South American giants quickly recovered from the defeat. The Selecao have defeated the likes of Venezuela and Peru ever since, while playing out a 1-1 draw with their bitter rivals Argentina in Buenos Aires. Carlos Dunga’s troops sit in third position in the standings ahead of the visit of Uruguay and they will be looking to strengthen their grip on a place in top 4 with a victory over la Celeste. However, seeing that Uruguay ace Luis Suarez returns from suspension, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Oscar Tabarez’s men outclassed Chile in their last qualifier and we predict that the Uruguayans are going to spoil Brazil’s party in Friday’s football game.
