Our football match prediction:
Uruguay will be aiming to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Chile when they face Brazil in what is expected to be the most entertaining clash of Friday’s program. La Celeste are on the right track to book their place at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but coach Oscar Tabarez must warn his men against complacency. Uruguay failed to impress in the away loss to Chile, but it is well known that they produce much better performances in front of home fans. Edinson Cavani is enjoying a season to remember, meaning that the opposition defenders should have the PSG attacker at bay. Brazil have been impressive in the World Cup qualifiers of late and a win over Uruguay at Estadio Centenario would see them clinch top position in the standings. As always, Neymar will be the man to watch in the away team and, taking everything into account, we predict that both teams will find the net in Friday’s football match.
Highlighted Player (Gaston Pereiro):
Uruguay midfielder Gaston Pereiro has been with PSV since 2015 when he was transferred from his boyhood club Nacional. An attacking midfielder is a member of the Uruguayan U-20 national team and is yet to receive a senior call-up he hopes will come with fine performances at the club he is contracted to until 2020. Pereiro is a flamboyant midfielder who adds creativity and flair to PSV’s play. The Uruguay international has already achieved the cult status with the supporters, despite being at the club a little over a year. Pereiro scored a brace against PSV’s most feared and detested rivals Ajax, writing his name into the club’s history books as his presence proved to be pivotal in earning three points that proved to be the difference between the two rivals at the end of the season. Gaston Pereiro made 30 Eredivisie appearances in his maiden season with PSV scoring 12 goals in the process and fans hope that the Uruguay midfielder will add up to the tally in the new season as well.
Highlighted Team (Brazil):
One of the most decorated teams in world football, Selecao have also been regarded as one of the most attractive and exciting teams with glowing reputation preceding them. Members of the CONMEBOL confederation, Brazil have played their first international in 1914 losing to bitter rivals Argentina with a comfortable 3-0 margin. Brazil is the most successful nation in the FIFA World Cup with five championship title to their name. However, Selecao failed to advance past the quarter-finals of the last two tournaments last winning their World Cup in 2002. Their last title was the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and the star-studded team will be looking to get back to winning ways at this year’s historic Copa America Centenario in the United States. Legendary Pele is Brazil’s top scorer with 77 goals to his name, while the team’s biggest star of the modern era Barcelona forward Neymar is sitting in fifth place having so far netted 46.
