Brazil Team News

Following the withdrawal of his Real Madrid colleague Casemiro from the October games due to injury, Eder Militao was forced to leave the Uruguay game due to back pain and may not be available on Thursday.

Militao’s problem isn’t believed to be serious, but Thiago Silva is more than capable of filling in for Marquinhos for the time being.

Raphinha’s brilliant 30-minute cameo against Colombia has put him in contention for a starting spot, with Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Barbosa both in danger of losing their spots after trying to make an impression in the final third last time out.

Uruguay Team News

Meanwhile, Rodrigo Bentancur returns from suspension for Uruguay’s trip to Brazil, and the Juventus midfielder should win an early recall in a change of shape for the visitors.

In Bentancur’s absence, Tabarez went with a five-at-the-back formation versus Argentina, which did not pay off at all, so Sebastian Coates could make way while Diego Godin and Ronald Araujo keep their spots.

After suffering a hip injury against Colombia last week, Jose Maria Gimenez has returned to Atletico Madrid, while Darwin Nunez and Edinson Cavani will likely be limited to more minutes as substitutes as Luis Suarez continues to lead the line.

Possible Lineups

Brazil XI: Alisson; Danilo, Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro; Fred, Fabinho; Raphinha, Neymar, Paqueta; Barbosa

Uruguay XI: Muslera; Nandez, Godin, Araujo, Vina; Bentancur, Vecino, Valverde; De la Cruz, Suarez, Rodriguez
