Who will win Uruguay vs Brazil?
Five-time world champions Brazil start favourites with the bookmakers after making an impressive start to qualifying behind three goals apiece to Neymar – who is out injured for this match – and Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino.
Uruguay's task has been made even more difficult with CONMEBOL's leading scorer Luis Suarez (four) contracting COVID-19. But even mighty Brazil struggle at this daunting venue, with just three wins in 20 visits. We're tipping a low scoring draw.
