Luis Suarez believes he has identified weaknesses in Italy that the Liverpool striker will attempt to exploit this evening as Uruguay seek to qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup.

The 27-year-old was the difference against England last Thursday, powering home a perfect header and later thrashing into the roof of the net to secure a crucial 2-1 win over the Three Lions.

Victory was imperative in Sao Paulo as a stunning reverse at the hands of Group D surprise packages Costa Rica had threatened to derail the South Americans' challenge from the outset.

Their path to the Round of 16 still remains perilous, however. Suarez and co must take all three points from a meeting with the Italians in Natal to book their spot in the next stage.

Fortunately for the 2010 semi-finalists, their two-goal talisman has confidence that he can carry his clinical form into the third game in Brazil and take advantage of any Achilles heel.

Suarez said: "From last year's Confederations Cup, I know how organised they are. If you leave them just an inch they will make you pay.

"But they have weaknesses as well as strengths, and we will try to exploit those weaknesses. We expect Italy to be tough opponents, but we know what's at stake and we are going out there to qualify."
