Brazil’s hard work was done in the first half despite a late Uruguay strike as the Selecao emerge victorious with a deserving 4-1 scoreline. Neymar’s goal 10 minutes into the match was just reward for the hosts’ positive start and that lead was doubled just eight minutes later thanks to Raphinha’s intelligent run to the far post, which allowed for an easy finish after Neymar's rebound. The Leeds United winger would double his tally 13 minutes after the restart which put Tite’s side in a commanding lead. A late Suarez free-kick looked to make it a contest with 10 minutes remaining, but Gabi’s header at the 83rd minute put the result beyond doubt. The win restores Brazil’s six-point lead at the top of the table, while Uruguay remain fifth.
