Brazil look for their first win when they face minnows Haiti in the second match of Copa America Cenetenario Group B at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
Brazil started out the tournament with a disappointing 0-0 draw against Ecuador, in a match both teams had plenty of chances to earn a win. The Selecao must also consider themselves lucky to have come out with a point after Ecuador’s goal by Miller Bolanos was disallowed under controversial circumstances.
Haiti on the other hand, lost their opening match 1-0 against Peru and were arguably the second best team on the night. They were largely anonymous through the game and only started to respond towards the final minutes of the game. Substitute Kervens Belfort had a perfect opportunity from set piece to pull the scores level in the injury time, but he headed wide agonizingly from close range.

Brazil vs Haiti: Head-to-Head Stats
The teams had met only once before, during the Pan American Games 1959, Brazil winning it by a massive 9-1 margin.

Haiti are on a three match losing streak and scored just one goal in their last 4.
Brazil vs Haiti: Prediction
Dunga must be still in a positive move after watching his players create a number of scoring chances in the opening fixture against Ecuador. And he will be hoping that his men will get things right against a lowly Haiti, who gave away plenty of chances against Peru.
Haiti are not expected to trouble Brazil by any means and are unlikely to score here. Brazil are desperate for a win and I am confidently backing them to grab a win by at least a two goal margin. Haiti on the other hand, may well seal their exit from the competition, depending upon the result of Ecuador vs Peru.
Exact Score Prediction: Brazil 3-0 Haiti (odds 6.00).
