Brazil vs Honduras
International – Friendlies
Date: Sunday, 9th July 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Pinheiro Borda (Porto Alegre).
With the 2019 Copa America around the corner, eight time champions Brazil will be looking to head in to the group stages with their current unbeaten streak in international competitions firmly intact.
Neymar’s early departure from the squad after picking up an injury in the match against Qatar will certainly be a worry for Tite, who is well aware of the forwards ability to run circles around the defenders.
The home team did find the net with the help of Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus in their last match, and will be looking to them again to score on Sunday.

Brazil’s Roberto Firmino scored the only goal in their last meeting.
Brazil Vs Honduras Prediction
Having not lost a single match post their exit from the World Cup last year, Brazil are almost definite to come out on top for this one. The seven clean sheets that the team has amassed over its previous nine games is a testimony of the Selecao’s strong defensive line-up which has been difficult to crack.
The home team scored twice in their last match against Qatar and have scored at least once in each of their previous nine games. This opens up the possibility of the home team going up by at least a goal, if not more, by the end of the first half and ultimately taking the win at the last blast of the final whistle.
On the other hand Fabian Coito’s men have managed to win only one out of their previous nine matches.
Despite having drawn both their recent matches, the match against Brazil will surely be a tough mountain to climb, with a defeat almost inevitable for the home side.
