After a stumble in their first match against Switzerland Brazil had rekindled their form. Tite’s men have re-discovered their samba style footballing roots and have looked formidable.
To the contrary Mexico began their World Cup campaign in terrific form beating defending champions Germany and then South Korea. However, they looked a shadow of themselves when they faced Sweden losing 3-0 and risked elimination from the competition had Germany won.
Neymar has yet to come good at this World Cup despite flashes of brilliance and this encounter provides the perfect stage for that but Brazil can count on their other talented players, such as Coutinho, who has been in impressive form so far. Mexico will need to get their house in order to stand any chance.
I am tipping Brazil to win this one. Back brazil here to guarantee the best odds!
Bonus: Coutinho to score anytime!
