Brazil hosts Uruguay in round 12 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Friday, October 15th at Arena da Amazonia (Manaus)
Brazil takes 1st place in the standings (28 points after ten matches). The Green and Yellows look very confident in the qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. They achieved nine victories in nine starting rounds with a total score of 22-3 and deservedly took the 1st place. The first misfire was made on October 11 in the postponed match of the 5th round against the national team of Colombia. The game in Barranquilla (Colombia) ended without goals scored. For the first time in the current qualification, the Brazilians failed to upset the goalkeeper of their opponents. At the same time, Selecao kept a clean sheet again, as was the case in seven of eight games in the current qualification.

Uruguay is in 4th place in the qualifying group (16 points after eleven matches). The Sky Blues do not look so confident in this tournament. In the first six qualifying matches in 2021, they won only two times and gained four draws, and three of them were goalless. Matches of Uruguay do not please the fans with high production: no more than 2 goals were recorded in six out of eight games in this qualification. On October 11, the men of Oscar Tabarez lost to the Argentines in Buenos Aires (3-0). The score could have been different if the Uruguayans had converted several dangerous chances in the first 30 minutes. Due to poor conversion, Uruguay's star attack led by Luis Suarez was left without a goal in the second game in a row.
The Brazilians are tough opponents for the Uruguayan national team. The last victory of the Sky Blues over Selecao happened in July 2001. Since then, the teams have played 11 matches in all tournaments, and Brazil has achieved six wins and five draws. The Brazilians are predictably the favorites of the upcoming confrontation. Tite's team is much more powerful and stable compared to the Uruguayans, who have problems with the attack. The strong defense of Seleçao is likely to hold back Suarez and the company. The Brazilians play excellently in defense (only three conceded goals in ten games). Seven out of eight previous matches in Brazil ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. The bet on a similar outcome was also winning in 11 of 13 games of Uruguay.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
