A classic of South American and world football, full of stories, will take place this Tuesday at the Centenario stadium in Montevideo. From 9 pm and with TyC Sports television, Uruguay and Brazil will face each other for the fourth date of the South American Qualifiers for the tripartite World Cup in 2026. Before that there will be three other matches in advance of the day that will close at midnight with the clash between Peru and Argentina. At 6:00 p.m. they will play in Maturín Venezuela-Chile (TyC Sports), at 7:00 p.m. in Asunción, Paraguay-Chile (D Sports) and at 8:30 p.m. in Quito, Ecuador-Colombia (DSports).
Uruguay (4 points) comes from rescuing an agonizing point against Colombia in the middle of the unbearable heat of Barranquilla in a match in which they showed worrying gaps in the background. But also the character to react to an unfavorable procedure. His coach Marcelo Bielsa is aware that the result was better than the game and that he will have to improve himself to face Brazil (7) that arrives with all its superstars, but touched after Venezuela got an unexpected draw in Cuiabá.
Precisely, toned by that equality, Venezuela (4) will receive Chile (4) who was only able to achieve their first victory in the competition on Thursday against Peru. Fernando Batista, the Argentine coach of the Venezuelans, will change half the team with six modifications compared to the initial formation that he put in place with Brazil. In Chile, The other Argentine coach, Eduardo Berizzo, ordered that River defender Paulo Díazgo for Matías Catalán, the Talleres de Córdoba defender who came out torn against Peru.
Paraguay (1), now led by Daniel Garnero, He will try to offer a different image from the one he gave against Argentina at the Monumental. His campaign so far has been very weak (two defeats and a draw) and he will have to get going if he does not want to have problems qualifying among the top six going to the World Cup. The occasion looks propitious. Bolivia (0) lost the three games it played and its coach, Gustavo Costas, seems to have few options to remove a team that is a candidate to quickly be left out of the fight to reach the World Cup.
Finally, Ecuador comes from winning his last two (but it has 3 points because 3 points were deducted due to the poor inclusion of a player on the way to Qatar 2022) and will seek to consolidate a strong locality in the 2,650 meters of altitude of Quito compared to Colombia (5) that, with James Rodríguez at a very high level, he had the chance to defeat Uruguay at home but he missed too many chances and in the end he ended up regretting it.
