Brazil’s amazing march in the Qualifiers continues. Tite’s team defeated Venezuela 3-1 in Caracas on Thursday after falling behind early on. As a result, he confirmed his winning trend: he won all nine games he played and now leads the league with 27 points.
FIFA is still to decide what will happen with the suspended classic with Argentina, but with these stats, he is almost certain to secure his ticket to the Qatar World Cup.
La Vinotinto seized the lead with a goal from Eric Ramrez 11 minutes into the first stage, after a cross from Yeferson Soteldo, and was up in a battle with Canarinha for the first time in the competition’s history.
However, Venezuela’s dream is ended in the complement: at 26 minutes, Marquinhos equalised the game, while Gabigol, from a penalty, and Antony, in the close, provided the Brazilian squad the triumph to continue without giving up points in what is going on in the battle.
Tite’s team will play Colombia in Barranquilla on October 10 before hosting Uruguay at the Mineirao stadium on October 14.
Colombia and Uruguay connected in Montevideo
Uruguay and Colombia drew 0-0 today at Montevideo’s Gran Parque Central stadium for the eleventh day of the Qualifiers.
The local club began the scoring in the first half of the hand of Luis Suárez, who retired at halftime due to a cut in one of his knees, but the VAR disallowed the goal due to the Atlético de Madrid striker’s forward position.
Colombia had the clearest chance in the encounter, but Fernando Muslera saved a header from Jefferson Lerna to keep the score at 0 in the Celeste goal.
With this outcome, and regardless of what happens in the rest of the day’s matches, Uruguay will remain in World Cup qualifying places with 16 points, while Colombia adds 14 and may have to settle for a playoff slot to enter the World Cup.
On the next date, which will be played on Sunday, Uruguay will face the Argentine National Team at the Monumental Stadium at 8:30 p.m., while Colombia will face the leading Brazil at 6:00 p.m.
