Brazil vs Uruguay live streaming info: World Cup Qualifying - March 25, 2016

March 23, 2016 By Ali M.
Luis Suarez makes his return to the national team after completing his 9-match ban, and will go head-to-head with Neymar's Selecao.

Friday’s 2018 World Cup qualifying match between Brazil and Uruguay will be one of the stand-out fixtures of this latest international break, and for three simple reasons.

First is the fact that the Selecao and La Celeste are – alongside Argentina – two of the continent's biggest nations. Secondly, the fixture being played in Recife will see the return of superstar striker Luis Suarez to the national side after completing his international ban.

Lastly, fans will also be treated to a face-off between two of the world’s most in-form and deadliest attackers in the form of Suarez and Barca team-mate Neymar.

Who’ll come out victorious?

Team news


Of course, the biggest team news heading into this World Cup qualifying tie surrounds the away side and the return of the nation’s all-time record goalscorer: Luis Suarez.

The 29-year-old hotshot striker's return to the Uruguayan side after 16 months will come as a huge boost, given that he has contributed to 64 goals (scoring 44 and assisting 20) in 82 outings.

The Barca man was handed a 9-game international ban after he was found guilty of biting Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup, and hasn’t featured since, missing out on La Celeste’s 2015 Copa America campaign and 4 CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers.

Suarez’s return is a huge boost for Óscar Tabárez; unfortunately, they’ll be without captain Diego Godin (hamstring) and Maxi Pereira (suspended).

Adding more worries to Uruguay’s defensive headache, the 2011 Copa America champions will likely be without Atletico Madrid center-back Jose Gimenez after (also) suffering a hamstring injury.


Over to the Selecao camp and the trend of hamstring injuries takes center stage, as Dunga will have to make do without Liverpool ace Roberto Firmino after hurting his hamstring in the 3-2 loss to Southampton.

Benfica attacker Jonas comes in for the Reds ace, but PSG duo Thiago Silva and Thiago Motta will also miss out on the Itaipava Arena Pernambuco match after being left out of the squad.

Les Parisiens center-back David Luiz, however, is expected to slot right back into the starting lineup after returning from suspension, whilst playmaker Philippe Coutinho is in contention after his unexpected return to full fitness.

FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifying, South America, Brazil, Uruguay

Brazil are South America’s most successful nation, and this shows in their record against Uruguayan, even in recent years. 

When the Selecao host Suarez and Co., the home side will go in search of a fifth straight victory over La Celeste in all competitions.

In fact, the last time the two-time World Cup winners recorded victory in the five-time champions’ home soil was almost 33 years ago, back in August 1983.

However, with both nations having played 4 fixtures so far, it is Oscar Tabarez's crew who sit ahead of their Friday opponents.

La Celeste have suffered one defeat so far, but have won all their other three fixtures.

Neymar and Co., having kicked off their qualification with a 2-0 loss to Chile, also drew 1-1 with Argentina and thus trail Uruguay by 2 points.
