Bringing back Brazil

Brazil have been unintimidating in their last number of games. They lost in this year’s Copa America quarterfinals (didn’t even reach the semis, these blokes), and then lost in a friendly match with Germany.

Overall the squad’s recent form shows 2 draws, 2 losses and only 1 win. This is not the team that once tallied 11 straight wins.

The upside here for the Brazilians is their impressive record against Ghana. In the squad’s 3 matches the Brazilians have proven dominance, winning each one by an average of 2 goals.

If Brazil can return to their combative selves, they can produce a win and salvage their image. Also, after Ghana they tussle with Argentina. They will need a morale boost; or at least, they need to avoid facing their rivals with a humiliating 3 straight losses.

Verdict: Brazil at -1
