The Brazilian team will have five lineup changes in relation to the game against Colombia, on Sunday.
The main novelty is the entry of little raph between the holders. In his debut with the hopscotch, the forward was the best on the field in the comeback against Venezuela, with participation in the three goals. In the next match, he again entered the second half well.
The Leeds striker will enter Gabigol’s place. Thus, Gabriel Jesus will play more centralized.
The other changes are in defense. Ederson returns to goal in place of Alisson; Éder Militão, injured, gives way to Lucas Verríssimo. He will form fullback with Thiago Silva, which replaced Marquinhos. Finally, Émerson Royal wins a chance in place of Danilo, the only player from Brazil who has played in all the qualifiers so far.
Who is out: Éder Militão (injury to the posterior muscle of the right thigh), Casemiro (cut due to an infection in the tooth) and Matheus Cunha (cut due to a lesion in the thigh).
Hanging: Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Éder Militão, Gerson, Lucas Paquetá, Gabriel Jesus and Gabigol.

Uruguay – Coach: Óscar Tabárez
Reserve last Sunday, the forward Edinson Cavani should go back to starting against Brazil. For different reasons, he played only four qualifiers for Qatar and also missed part of the start of the season with Manchester United through injury and lack of fitness.
This is not the only change prepared by Oscar Tabarez for the classic. in addition to the defender Ronald Araujo, bruised, Matías Viña and Brian Rodríguez must leave the team for the entries of piquerez and de la Cruz. Thus, the line of five defenders will be broken.
Uruguay can’t count on one of its highlights: De Arrascaeta, Flamengo midfielder, who suffered a muscle injury in the duel against Colombia last week.
Who is out: Giménez, Ronald Araújo and De Arrascaeta, all injured.
