It’s one year ago on Friday since Brazil opened up their home World Cup with a rousing 3-1 win over Croatia. That tournament ended in utter embarrassment at the hands of Germany in the semi-finals but since then they have played nine friendlies and won all nine.
Dunga is the new man at the helm and he will be looking to head into the Copa America with another victory under his belt. While he won’t be fielding his strongest XI tonight, the Brazilians still boast plenty of star power, especially in the forward areas. And, with the fringe players pushing for starts against Peru on Sunday, nobody will be taking this friendly lightly.
Honduras lost all three of their World Cup matches last summer but they come into this fixture in better form. A pair of victories over French Guyana and El Savador is nothing to get excited about but they have since drawn 2-2 against Paraguay and that is an improvement.
Ultimately however I expect Jorge Luis Pinto’s side to be blown away in Porto Alegre tonight but I wouldn’t rule them out from scoring a goal against what is still a shaky Brazil backline.
All things considered, with under 3.5 goals trading at around the 1.90 mark, I have to make it my lay of the day.
Lay Under 3.5 goals in Brazil v Honduras @ 1.90
It’s the final warm-up friendly for Brazil ahead of the Copa America tonight and Paul Robinson expects them to rack up a few goals when they face Honduras.
