Brazil will lock horns with Cameroon at the Lusial Stadium on Friday as they look to secure their third win in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Brazilian national side managed to earn a 1-0 victory over Switzerland recently which booked their place in the knockout rounds. However, they are keen on finishing at the top of the table as they head into the final fixture of the group stages.
Tite could opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could rotate the match-day squad allowing several players to have some World Cup minutes along the way. Neymar Jr. will remain sidelined for this game as well due to a ligament injury but Gabriel Jesus will lead the charge up top as Richarlison drops to the bench.
4-3-3 Brazil Predicted Line Up Vs Cameroon
Alisson Becker will continue in between the sticks for Brazil after earning a clean sheet in both outings. Marquinhos continue to play alongside Thiago Silva at the heart of Brazil’s defence as they try to keep things solid and stop the opposition throughout the game.
Eder Militao will continue as the right-back in Danilo’s absence while Alex Telles replaces Alex Sandro to give a good account of himself on the opposite flank. Both of them could be given the freedom to express themselves in the opponent’s half but will be asked to keep their shape defensively.
Dani Alves and Gleison Bremer will be named on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive positions.
Casemiro, Bruno Guimaraes and Lucas Paqueta will be given the responsibility to anchor the midfield for Brazil as they look to dominate possession in the central areas while creating decent opportunities for the front three. The former will be tasked with shielding the back four as he plays in the holding positions sitting deep into the defensive third. Paqueta will have to carry most of the creative workload for Brazil in the attacking third.
Fabinho and Fred will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second half if required.
Vinicius Junior will try to make a difference from the left wing while Rodrygo replaces Raphinha in hopes to prove his worth from the right.
Gabriel Jesus will get the opportunity to lead the line for Brazil on his own up top as he fancies his chances of finding the back of the net and getting his name on the scoresheet.
Richarlison will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the latter stages of the contest if Tite’s team are in need of a goal by then.
