Brazil will be aiming to get back on the winning track in their 2026 World Cup qualification campaign when they face Uruguay in Montevideo on Tuesday night.
The Brazilian team is coming off a 1-1 draw with Venezuela, while Uruguay also played a 2-2 draw against Colombia in Barranquilla in their last match. Uruguay has appeared in each of the last four World Cup finals, reaching the quarter-finals in 2010, the round of 16 in 2014, and the quarter-finals in 2018. However, they had a disappointing showing in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, failing to advance beyond the group stage for the first time since 2002.
