Venue: Singapore National Stadium.
Dani Alves and his boys have been taking their games easy after their Copa triumph. And this has led to them staying winless since. The proud, and football-mad nation surely will not let such a streak to go on and will give their best on the pitch to secure the win.

Brazil vs Nigeria Prediction
The last game of Tite’s men ended in disappointment, as his famed squad could not manage to record a familiar win that day against Peru. After 85 tiring minutes of intense gameplay, opponents Peruvians found the back of the net to put an end to the long unbeaten run of the Brazilians.
However, they really were on fire in the preceding fixtures. In the Copa tournament, for which they played hosts, the team had gone through almost unchallenged en route to the title. In fact, not only did they remain unbeaten throughout the tie, but they did not even concede a single goal till the final, and that too via a penalty.
Take into account that the Canaries won the final 3-1, despite going a man down, as Gabriel Jesus was shown the red card in the 70th minute.
After losing the fear-factor the team once had in the minds of opponents, under Tite, and inspired by another lot of a golden generation filled with undeniable talents, the five-time World Champions are slowly taking a walk back to glory.
Pure talent alone would be enough to deem them huge favorites against any opposition, let alone minnows the Nigerians. The Super Eagles have lost their previous three games in a row, and are winless in their prior four.
They have also conceded two or more goals in all four of these ties. And have just three wins to their name away from home.
Rightfully count on the Latin Americans to come out on top against the struggling rivals.
Finally, with Neymar intending to chase down the legendary Pele’s record of 77 goals in national jersey, it would prove to be a good bet to back him.
