72'   Suarez almost finds Suarez as Miranda intervenes for Brazil.... excellent break from the men in sky blue

Possession stats at the interval: Brazil 61% - 39% Uruguay

The whistle sounds as Uruguay finish slightly on top at the end of the half but a first 45' that saw clear domination from the Canarinho. Quick brea and we'll be back with the second half.  

44'   Last minute of the half...Uruguay finish the half the stronger side as Cavani forces Alisson into action after latching onto a fine delivery from Suarez.
