BRA vs URU Dream11 Prediction
Brazil’s 100 per cent record in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers 2022 came to an end with a 0-0 draw against Colombia last time around, but Tite’s men still maintain a healthy lead on the table with 28 points from 10 matches.
Uruguay, on the flip side, are coming off a 0-3 loss to Copa America 2021 champions Argentina.
In terms of the head-to-head record, Brazil maintain a strong lead with 39 wins in 77 clashes across all competitions and are unbeaten against Uruguay since a 0-1 loss in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers 2001.
Considering the past record and recent form, it is safe to say that Brazil are the favourites to win the encounter.
