Team Previews

A heavyweight South American showdown is set to take centre stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday as Uruguay faces Brazil in the quarter-finals of the 2024 Copa America. The victors of this highly anticipated contest will meet either Colombia or Panama in the semi-finals.

Uruguay has been one of the standout performers in the tournament, winning all three of their group-stage matches with an aggregate score of 9-1 to secure the top spot in Group C. La Celeste began their campaign with a 3-1 victory over Panama, followed by a dominant 5-0 win against Bolivia, and capped their group-stage success with a 1-0 victory over the USA, thanks to Mathias Olivera’s 66th-minute goal. Despite Marcelo Bielsa’s touchline ban during the match against the host nation, Uruguay's impressive performances reflect the 68-year-old manager's influence since taking over in May last year, winning 10 of his 15 matches in charge.

Uruguay, with 15 Copa America titles—the most alongside Argentina—are aiming to become South American champions for the first time since 2011. While they have reached the quarter-finals in three of the last four Copa America tournaments, they have been eliminated each time by Chile (2015), Peru (2019), and Colombia (2021). However, this year’s strong performances have given them the credentials to go all the way, bolstered by their recent competitive win over Brazil during the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Brazil, meanwhile, have reached the knockout rounds for the third consecutive Copa America but missed securing the top spot in Group D after a 1-1 draw with Colombia. Raphinha gave Brazil an early lead with a stunning free kick, but Daniel Munoz equalized in first-half stoppage time. Brazil struggled to break through Colombia’s defense, managing only three shots on target. Head coach Dorival Junior expressed frustration with the officiating, particularly over a non-awarded penalty. Brazil’s group stage also included a 0-0 draw with Costa Rica and a 4-1 victory over Paraguay. Despite being unbeaten under Dorival since his appointment in January, Brazil has drawn four of their seven matches, indicating a need to regain their winning form.

Brazil, seeking their 10th Copa America title after losing the 2021 final, will need to overcome an in-form Uruguay. Historically, Brazil has dominated their encounters, winning nine of the last 13 meetings and scoring at least twice in eight of those games. This quarter-final clash will test Brazil's resilience and ability to rediscover their groove against a formidable Uruguay side determined to break their recent quarter-final jinx.
