Nightmarish evening for Edinson Cavani against Brazil. The former Parisian was indeed expelled for an ugly base while Uruguay suffered the distance from the Seleçao (2-0) in Montevideo as part of the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.
Edinson Cavani had probably imagined a better scenario for his reunion with Marquinhos and Thiago silva. Because if the new captain of PSG had sweet words for his former teammate in the capital before the meeting, the two accomplices of the Brazilian central hinge were intractable with the Uruguayan striker.
Deprived of Luis Suarez, tested positive for the coronavirus, the Celeste suffered against the Seleçao. The fate of the meeting was also sealed from the break, the Brazilians, thanks to two goals signed Arthur melo (34th) and Richarlison (44th), having put theirs into orbit. The essential was done and Tite’s men eased off in the second half despite the expulsion of Edinson Cavani at the start of the last twenty minutes.
Four out of four for Brazil
Undoubtedly frustrated by the performance of a Uruguayan team lacking inspiration, the Manchester United striker was guilty of a sole on the shin of Richarlison. And if the referee of the meeting initially waved a simple warning, he changed his mind after viewing the images of the Uruguayan star’s foul on the Everton player, choosing to send him back to the locker room.
Uruguay is in a tough spot at the start of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. La Celeste had already been beaten by Ecuador on Matchday 2 and is only in fifth place with only 6 points in the game. counter after four days. All is well on the other hand for Brazil, solid leader with four victories in four matches.
