Brazil national team returns to Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto for the first time since the embarrassing 7-1 defeat to Germany in the 2014 World Cup semi-final, and the Selecao now have a good opportunity to banish memory of said loss as they face arch rivals Argentina in Superclasico.
With Brazil leading the chase with 21 points and los Albicelestes currently outside of qualifying positions, the Selecao can inflict their bitter rivals a costly defeat and they look a good bet to emerge victorious at 11/10.
Brazil not only won their last five home games against Argentina, but have largely impressed under new coach Tite, recording four comfortable triumphs during his reign.
It has to be noted though that los Albicelestes will have Barcelona superstar Leo Messi back to the side, but odds of 29/10 offered on away win do not seem too tempting.
Brazil head into the game at close to full strength, with Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa returning from injury, but Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro is unavailable. Liverpool hotshot Philippe Coutinho will be preferred to Chelsea’s Willian.
Argentina boss Edgardo Bauza have star player Lionel Messi back after he missed last three qualifiers through injury, but Paulo Dybala, Augusto Fernandez, Ezequiel Garay and Nicolas Gaitan are out injured. Midfielder Enzo Perez is tipped to start at right-back with the sole task of keeping Neymar quiet.
Fans around the world will be eagerly awaiting to see how new-look Brazil will fare against perennial underachievers Argentina, with Barcelona superstars Neymar and Messi set to battle it out in Belo Horizonte.
