Brazil predicted lineup vs Uruguay: Copa America 2024

Savio could start in place of Vinicius Jr.

Brazil could book their place in the Copa America semi-finals with a win over Uruguay this weekend at Allegiant Stadium.

A few days after taking on one CONMEBOL giant in Colombia, Dorival Junior’s side now gear up to take on 15-time Copa America winners Uruguay with a place in the last four of the tournament on the line.

Brazil have yet to really put it all together in Copa America but they’ll look to change that narrative against their southern neighbors. With Vinicius Jr. suspended due to yellow card accumulation, Dorival Junior could look to bring in Manchester City’s newest signing Savio to help out the attack.

Here’s how the Selecao could take the pitch vs Uruguay Saturday night.
