Predicted Brazil XI vs. Uruguay: Gabriel Jesus to start ahead of Roberto Firmino?

Sports Mole looks at how Brazil could line up when they take on Uruguay at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Friday.

Two South American giants will descend on North London on Friday night when Brazil take on Uruguay at the Emirates Stadium.

The likes of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will be on show at the home of Arsenal as both nations continue their preparations for next year's Copa America, which Brazil will host.

The Selecao have lost just one of their last 20 games across all competitions, including four successive wins without conceding a goal since their World Cup exit at the hands of Belgium.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Tite's side could line up at the Emirates.



Possible BRA XI vs. URU

Brazil will be without Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho and Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Casemiro due to injuries, but they still have plenty of star power to call upon.

Talisman Neymar is set to win his 95th cap and could score his 60th international goal, but who will join him in the front three remains to be seen.

Tite took the rarely-used step of starting both Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino against Argentina last month, although that experiment did not exactly work as planned so the Liverpool forward may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Juventus winger Douglas Costa is competing for a place with Willian and Everton's Richarlison, while there are also Premier League options in goal between Alisson Becker and Ederson.

Walace is expected to be chosen ahead of the unmarked Allan as the holding midfielder, while Arthur is also likely to be selected in that trio. Renato Augusto, Rafinha and Paulinho are competing for the other central midfield role.

Liverpool's Fabinho is regarded as a right-back by Tite and could start there given Danilo's lack of football for Manchester City this season, while Alex Sandro and Filipe Luis are battling it out for a start on the other flank.
