BRAZIL are in charge in one of football's oldest derbies.

First half goals from Arthur and Richarlison have put the Selecao in a strong position.

And to add insult to injury, Edinson Cavani has been controversially sent off after a VAR review.

    SEE YA!

    Just before I head off I'll tell you that Paraguay and Bolivia drew 2-2 in a game that started at the same time as this one.

    And if you want more South American action to take you through the night then why not join Sam Street for Peru vs Argentina.

    Argentina are 1-0 up with half-hour gone in that one. Sam is ready to take you through into the small hours.

    JOB DONE

    A very pleasing night for Brazil in the end. They were very average against Venezuela and knew they needed to be better here.

    FT: URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    That's all she wrote.

    Brazil get the win thanks to first-half goals from Arthur and Richarlison.

    Uruguay held their own for 20 minutes or so but looked lost as soon as they fell behind without their man man Suarez.

    It's 4 wins out of 4 to start the World Cup qualifying campaign for Tite's men.

    90, Two late changes for Brazil as Ribeiro and Luiz go off and Paqueta and Guimaraes come on.

    A few extra caps handed out.

    90, FOUR minutes of injury time.

    87, Uruguay look resigned here to their fate.

    Brazil just stroking it around and going through the motions.

    83, And someone has just turned the gas down a bit and the simmering has died off.

    Brazil going through the motions now, they're minutes away from 4 straight wins.

    80, Well this game has suddenly come into life.

    Tite will want these final 10 minutes to be over with and move on.

    76, It's offside. No goal.

    The corner came in and Brazil pushed out well as it was semi-cleared.

    As it came back in Caceres was offside before scrambling it into the bottom corner.

    No goal for 10-man Uruguay.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    75, Well Uruguay have the ball in the back of the net here, but the offside flag is up.

    It's being checked.

    Caceres has the ball in his hand and ready to go and kick-off again after a scrappy finish past Ederson after the ball ricocheted around.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    72, This is the incident.

    It has to be said they were running at full speed and it looked like an accident to me and a yellow card the right decision.

    It's a potential serious one for Richarlison, though, a possible achilles injury given the contact.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    71, The referee has come to look at the VAR monitor to see if there's anything more sinister in Cavani's tackle on Richarlison.

    And he says there is. It's a RED CARD for Cavani.

    He is adjudged to have deliberately trodden on the back of Richarlison's ankle and has been shown a red card.

    I have to say that is very harsh.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    69, And Cavani goes into the book now as well for clipping the back of Richarlison's heels.

    That looked accidental from the striker but a nasty one for Richarlison.

    It's his last act anyway as Everton replaces him – oh, the irony.

    66, Yellow card for Nandez as he leaves a foot in late on Arthur.

    Naughty challenge that and a rightful booking.

    There's some activity on the brazil bench also.

    63, Brazil looking dangerous when they spring forward now.

    Caceres was needed with an excellent defensive header at the far post just then after Ribeiro's beauty of a whipped cross from the right.

    Think there's another goal here for Brazil if they want it.

    61, Double change for the home side as Bentancur and Torreira make way.

    On in their place come Arambarri and Brian Rodriguez.

    60, Getting a bit heated now as Caceres lunges in wildly to try and stop Richarlison.

    The Everton man did so well to avoid the sliding tackle that the result is a Uruguay goal-kick.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    57, There doesn't look to be much sting in Uruguay at the moment.

    Their best chance of a goal will surely be from something in the air aimed at Cavani with Suarez not available.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    55, The home side will be very disappointed that they're yet to have a shot on target in this game.

    Ederson having an easy night so far in the Brazil sticks.

    51, Ribiero stands over the dangerous free-kick won by Jesus on the edge of the box off to the right.

    And he whips in a menacing cross right across the face of goal before Campana gratefully clutches on.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    49, Gimenez forward for Uruguay to attack this cross, and he completely bundles his man over in an attempt to head the ball.

    He follows up by scything down Jesus and picking up a yellow card so not a happy couple of minutes.

    URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    47, Jesus with the first sighter of the second half – and it's high and wide.

    The Man City forward's eyes lit up there as he hammered in a shot from 20 yards but it went harmlessly over.

    HERE WE GO AGAIN

    Right then, 45 minutes down. 45 to go.

    We're underway in the second half.

    ELSEWHERE

    Bolivia have come from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 at Paraguay at half-time.

    Argentina and Peru will be kicking off in about 35 minutes from now and we'll have LIVE coverage of that one too.

    Sam Street is primed and ready to take you through that one – and you can follow it HERE.

    Or stick with me for a little while and see if Uruguay can turn this around?

    HT: URUGUAY 0-2 BRAZIL

    And that's the half-time whistle. Brazil sitting pretty in Montevideo.

    It wasn't always easy for them in that opening period but a slice of good fortune with Arthur's deflected strike set them on their way.

    Richarlison's header just before the break will make it a rather pleasant 15 minutes in the away dressing room.
