This Tuesday, June 13, 2017 (3:05 AM Pacific) Australia will host Brazil at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for an international friendly match. The match should prove to be an interesting duel even with Brazil being the clear favorite.
Australia has been dominating the World Cup qualifiers, recently coming off a 3-2 victory over Saudi Arabia at home. Tomi Juric of Swiss club, Luzern scored two goals in the encounter against the Middle Eastern opponent while Tom Rogic of Scottish club, Celtic also scored one goal. The Socceroos do have some interesting players on its squad like Aaron Mooy of Manchester City, Matthew Leckie of Hertha Berlin, Massimo Luongo of Queens Park Rangers and the veteran, Tim Cahill of Melbourne City. The match will be a tough one for the home side but the aggressive style of soccer the Aussies do play can complicate things for Brazil.
This will be the second game Brazil plays at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in less than a week. The South American side played against Argentina on June 9 and lost by the slim scoreline of 1-0. It has been reported that Brazil is fully prepared for this match and even went as far as to send a scout to watch the Australia vs Saudi Arabia match to see the Aussies style of play. The five-time World Cup champs will have a lot of talent on its squad with players like Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Fernandinho, Phillippe Coutinho, Willian and Douglas Costa. Some under-the-radar players that could shine in this encounter include Giuliano of the Russian side, Zenit and Taison of Ukranian team, Shakhtar Donetsk. The match should be an entertaining one this Tuesday morning and should provide a few goals.
