Brazil will clash with Uruguay in the South American qualifier of the World Qualifying Tournament on 14 October 2021 at 5:30 PT.
Brazil have lost out on the Copa America title this year, but have certainly been on a roll in World Cup qualifying.
With an unbeaten record of 9 wins and 1 draw in 10 World Cup qualifying matches, they are currently the leaders with 28 points. The team is currently six points ahead of Argentina behind them and is getting closer to qualifying.
In terms of statistics, Brazil have scored 22 goals and conceded 3 in their 10 World Qualifying matches, making them the best team in South America in terms of both attack and defense.
Brazil have a very luxurious squad with excellent players such as Neymar, Jesus, Barbosa, Fabinho, Paqueta, Sandro and Alisson.
In Brazil’s last match away to Colombia in the World Cup, the team dominated the field, with 63% possession and 4 out of 8 shots on target.
Unfortunately, the team failed to break through and ended up with a 0-0 draw with Colombia, while their winning streak was snapped.
The Uruguayan team is currently ranked 13th in the world. The team has been underachieving in recent years, a result of a lack of dynamism in the squad, which relies heavily on veterans such as Suarez, Cavani and Godin.
Uruguay are in 4th place with 16 points after 11 matches, having won 4, drawn 4 and lost 3.
Despite being within the qualification zone, the lead is not particularly clear and the team still needs to grab points to consolidate their position.
Uruguay’s last match away to Argentina in the World Qualifiers was a sluggish affair, with only 38% possession of the ball.They were eventually swept by the hosts 0-3 and ended their previous unbeaten run of eight matches in the tournament.
In terms of statistics, Uruguay have scored 13 goals and conceded 13 in their 11 qualifying matches, a poor performance in attack and defense, with the attacking side having failed to score in 2 consecutive matches.
In their previous meetings, Brazil have won 6 and drawn 4 of their last 10 matches against Uruguay, with a dominant record.
Brazil are currently leading with six points, but their morale was inevitably damaged when they ended their winning streak last time out. The Uruguayan side are now within the qualification zone, but have a small lead and are still in need of points.
The team’s forward line has been in poor form in the last 2 games. The support for the home team is too obvious at the moment, so we should be wary of Brazil losing points in this match.
Prediction：Total Goals over 1.5 @1.4
