Brazil looks to keep up winning streak against Uruguay

Miranda Brazil Uruguay international friendly betting odds soccer

South American giants Brazil and Uruguay will lock horns on Friday at the Emirates Stadium in London in what is the most mouth-watering of the international friendly fixtures this week. Brazil boss Tite is looking to prepare his side for the Copa América, which they will host in June on home soil and where only lifting the trophy come the end of the tournament may be enough for him to keep his job.

SHARK BITES
  • Brazil has won five of the last six meetings between these two teams.
  • The last six matches between Brazil and Uruguay have had at least three goals.
  • Brazil has won four games in a row without conceding a goal.

Brazil looking to continue recent run of form

Under Tite, Brazil was one of the favorites for the World Cup in Russia earlier this year, but ultimately was disappointed by a quarterfinal exit at the hands of Belgium. The next competitive commitment to Brazil is the Copa América next year and a title win is almost an imperative – preparations have got off to a great start, with four wins on the bounce and no goals conceded.

Uruguay also made it to the last eight at the World Cup before being eliminated by eventual champion France. Recent games have not exactly gone according to plan, with the side losing their last two games against South Korea and Japan last month.

It is therefore of little surprise that it is indeed Brazil that comes into this match as the overwhelming favorite to claim local bragging rights. You can back the seleção to pick up a fifth win in a row at just -188, while Uruguay is out at +500 to record a shock victory. A draw is priced in the middle at +300.

Brazil to win a high-scoring game

Given Brazil’s recent form and Uruguay’s struggles over the last month, we are expecting Brazil to win this match with plenty of goals and excitement for the fans in London. While it is never easy trying to predict the exact scoreline of any game – particularly a friendly, where several changes are made – a 3-1 win for Brazil is priced competitively at +1200 and looks to be worth backing given Brazil’s recent run against Uruguay and its post-World Cup winning streak.

Such a result would then allow you to back OVER 2.5 goals in the game, which is priced low at -106, and both teams to score, which comes in at +100. In order to try to boost any potential earnings from this clash, it is worth considering combo betting, which allows you to pick multiple outcomes at higher odds.

For example, a Brazil win combined with both teams to score is at the higher price of +275, while a seleção win and OVER 2.5 goals in the game is at +150.

Brazil could make a fast start

In Uruguay’s last match – a 4-3 loss to Japan – the South Americans were a goal down inside 10 minutes, handing the initiative almost immediately to their opponents. Brazil may well look to employ a similar approach at the Emirates Stadium, and you can back OVER 0.5 goals in the first 10 minutes at +350, with Brazil at +600 to be ahead by the end of that time period.

If you think Brazil will make it five games in a row with a clean sheet, then you can back them to win to nil (without Uruguay scoring a goal) at +140. In addition, Tite’s men are at +162 to score in both halves and +300 to actually go out and win both halves.

Young striker Richarlison is certainly one to keep an eye on for Brazil, and the Everton man is at +200 to score at any time, while you can back the striker to score either the first or the last goal of the game at +600. Uruguay may test Brazil at times but this is a test that the five-time world champions should pass.
