Recent success follows Brazil, Uruguay in World Cup qualifier
Brazil will look to continue their winning run under coach Tite, while Uruguay will try to protect their unblemished home record in 2018 World Cup qualifiers when the two teams meet on Thursday.
Tite, who was hired in June, has led Brazil to six consecutive victories and helped them claim the top spot in the CONMEBOL standings after 12 rounds.
They have outscored opponents 15-1 with Tite in charge, including a 3-0 victory away at Ecuador in his first game, a 5-0 win against Bolivia in October in which five different players scored and a 3-0 victory against Argentina in the most recent round in November.
One player who has benefited from Tite's coaching is Neymar, who is expected to win his 76th cap for Brazil.
The 25-year-old has scored four goals in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, all in the six games with Tite in charge, and could continue to climb his country's record books with another on Thursday.
Uruguay, meanwhile, have won all six home games in this qualifying cycle and did not concede a goal there until November, when they defeated Ecuador 2-1 in Montevideo in the last round.
Although Luis Suarez did not score in that game, he did provide the equaliser in the previous meeting -- a 2-2 draw in Brazil just shy of a year ago.
Suarez, who has three goals in qualifying, will have scored more goals in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers than any other player if he finds the back of the net against Brazil.
Brazil currently have 27 points from 12 games, with Uruguay four points behind in second.
The top four teams advance to the World Cup, and the fifth will face the winners of the Oceania region in a playoff for a place in the finals.
