Team News

Brazil
Paraguay
  • With Casemiro suspended and Fernandinho injured, Napoli ace Allan will start alongside Arthur in midfield for Brazil.
  • Tite has not settled on his preferred front three but his decision has been made easier by the fact Richarlison is out ill with mumps. Everton and Gabriel Jesus should therefore be safe to start either side of Roberto Firmino here.
  • Paraguay have used a 4-4-1-1 formation in their last two matches against Argentina and Colombia and are expected to go with the same here.

Prediction

  • Brazil have not conceded a goal at this summer's tournament and are the firm favourites to go on and win it on home soil.
  • Paraguay made it out of their group without actually winning a game, though they did prove tough to break down in matches against Argentina and Colombia.
  • It would be a major upset if Brazil didn't beat Paraguay.
