The Line: Brazil -250 / Draw +375 / USA +650 -- Over/Under: 2.5
The US Men's National team will play Brazil in an international friendly soccer match.
Brazil had a disappointing World Cup campaign as they were eliminated in the quarterfinals at the hands of a very talented Belgium side. This will be a great chance for Brazil to return to winning ways and as a result, the manager has named a very strong side. The likes of Neymar, Douglas Costa, and Thiago Silva are all in the squad. Brazil have scored at least 2 goals in their past 4 matches and it is more than likely they will be able to score multiple times against the United States. The Brazil team is filled with the best players in the world and that should make them very hard to beat.
The USMNT will be without Christian Pulisic who has not been included in this squad. That will be a huge blow for the team since Pulisic is the most accomplished player in the team. The defense will be greatly tested as Brazil attack really well and I don’t think the US defenders have enough experience of skill to stop the likes of Neymar. The USA have conceded in their past 2 games and I think they will concede many goals against Brazil. It has to be noted that the US will be at home for this match but I don’t think that will be enough since there is a huge difference in skill between the two teams.
All in all, I am going to pick Brazil to win. They have more skilled players who have much more top-level experience than that present in the US team. With the determination to get back to winning ways after the World Cup, I am expecting to see the talented Brazil team win with great ease.
