Brazil vs Uruguay in the Confederations Cup 2013 semi–final takes place on Wednesday with Brazil looking to extend their amazing winning streak in the tournament and make the final. The game will kick off at 3 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Brazil have no injury worries coming into this game, and head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has his full squad at his disposal after Paulinho, David Luiz and Bernard all overcame recent injuries.
Uruguay will recall Luis Suarez and defender Diego Godin back to the first team after resting them. However, Andres Scotti is suspended following his sending off against Tahiti. In addition Diego Lugano returns after a ban.
Brazil have had a relatively easy time of it in the competition until now but Uruguay will no doubt be looking to cause an upset, and an all South American semi-final should be a tense and exciting affair.
There will be no love lost between the teams, and of course Uruguay defeated hosts Brazil in the 1950 World Cup final to win the competition and break Brazilian hearts.
Uruguay also defeated Brazil by their largest ever margin – 6-0 all the way back in 1920.
These two nations have met each other 70 times over a 97 year period. Out of those games Brazil have won 32 times compared to Uruguay's 19.
But coming into this game Brazil are unbeaten in six matches against Uruguay since a 1-0 defeat in Montevideo in July 2001.
