France face off against Brazil at Brisbane Stadium in round two of the World Cup. The exciting encounter kicks off on Saturday.
France rank number two with one point after their opening match in Group F, while Brazil have three points as number one.
France came through the opening round with a goalless draw against Jamaica. No doubt they went into their opener gunning for a bit more, but at least they started off the World Cup by not losing, which is always nice. Brazil could not have wished for a better start to their campaign in the World Cup, absolutely annihilating Panama. They are no doubt brimming with confidence before their next assignment.
Team form: France vs Brazil
France saw a bit of everything from their previous three matches, which started off with a 0-3 win over Ireland. They went on to lose 1-0 to Australia, before sharing the spoils with Jamaica in a 0-0 draw. France won six of their past 10 international matches, drawing two of those games. Unfortunately, they experienced defeat twice.
Brazil are in awesome shape going into this next encounter, as they won their last three matches on the bounce. Germany got left behind in a 1-2 win, before Chile got hammered in a 4-0 victory. Panama was the most recent victim in a 4-0 win for Brazil. Brazil won six out of their last 10 internationals across all tournaments, drew none, and suffered four defeats in the same span.
Neither Brazil nor France score many goals, but they are decent at keeping things tight at the back, and we don’t see a goal fest happening at Brisbane Stadium.
