Uruguay believed in their idea and beat Brazil after 22 years

Dream night for Uruguay. After 22 years against Brazil, La Celeste won the Classic Cup again with a brilliant night from Darwin Nunes, a goal and an assist and many high points.
From the start, Bielsa’s team applied the coach’s ideas strictly, pressing with intensity from the top and complicating Canarinha’s start, who played the first five minutes between their goalkeeper Ederson and centre-backs Marquinhos and Gabriel Magalhas.
Uruguay, however, found it difficult to break down and even suffered a few minutes when Brazil managed to avoid first-row pressure.Leaving Vinicius, Rodrigo and Neymar hand in hand – off -, Gabriel Jesus is a note.
But the team was undeterred and while both failed to score, they were very effective in opening the scoring. On a play from one side in the 42′. Mathias Olivera only found Darwin, who passed it back to him, and sent full-back Maxi Araujo on the run, who narrowly missed Yan Couto. Darwin threw in a cross and caught Ederson’s back leg to start the count.
In addition, Uruguay did not speculate and played evenly, controlling the action of the game. But it wasn’t until the 77th minute that he managed to end the match with the absolute genius of Darwin Nunes.
Bruno Mendes dropped a side ball into the area, went out between the three and fed a pass to Nicolás de la Cruz for the second goal in the middle to set up the final point of the match. Marcelo promotes Bielsa and his idea. The game will be a historic classic for the Canarinha, who are unbeaten since a 1-0 win in a Korea-Japan World Cup qualifier on July 1, 2001.
