Brazil takes on Uruguay in World Cup qualifying on Friday night.
With some of the CONMEBOL nations playing their fifth qualifying match on Thursday, Brazil is currently in the fifth spot that would see them advance to the inter-confederation playoff. They will take on Uruguay who currently sits in second place and can get within one point of first with a win on Friday.
Once March ends the CONMEBOL nations will have completed a third of all qualifying matches. Each team will play 18 matches and face every nation within the confederation twice when the final qualifying matches are played on October 10 2017.
Both teams are currently in good shape. If they can close out the opening stretch of matches with quality, then they will provide themselves with a cushion should disaster strike and their play goes down hill as qualification progresses.
Friday’s match will not air on any stations within the United States. There also won’t be any legal streams available for avid soccer fans either. It’s unfortunate as this game pits two of the best CONMEBOL teams against each other in a meaningful game.
