Uruguay vs Brazil, Copa America 2024: Predicted lineups; Formations; Team news ahead of URU v BRA quarterfinal match

Joint-record time champion Uruguay will clash against Brazil in a Copa America 2024 quarterfinal match at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday (Sunday in IST).

The absence of Vinicius, who is suspended for accumulating yellow cards, should allow 17-year-old Endrick to start up front, with Rodrygo moving to either of the flanks. Raphinha, Savio and Gabriel Martinelli are all in contention of getting a place in the Selecao attack.

Bielsa is not expected to make any major changes to his first XI.  Facundo Pellistri, Nicolas de la Cruz and Darwin Nunez will make the attack, Federico Valverde and Manuel Ugarte will operate from the middle of the park, while Nahitan Nandez, Ronald Araujo, Oliveira and Matias Vina will form a four-man defence.
