Endrick’s goal won the friendly tie for Brazil against England

Spain are a team that are a shadow of their former selves. However, the team look to be on the rise after their Nations League win against Croatia last year. Since then, the La Furia Roja have won 7 out of their 8 European Qualifiers, and have seemingly addressed their goalscoring problems after scoring 25 in 8 qualifiers so far. However, head coach Luis de la Fuente’s side faced a shock 1-0 defeat against Colombia on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Brazil have been in dire form recently, languishing in 6th in their World Cup qualifying group. The post-Tite era has been disastrous, with the team looking disjointed despite a very talented squad. Under Dorival Junior, the Selecao started with a 1-0 win against England at the Wembley Stadium.

Kick-Off:

Friday; 27th March 2024, 2:00 AM IST

Location: Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid, Spain

Form:

Spain (all-competitions and friendlies): L-W-W-W-W

Brazil (all-competitions and friendlies): W-L-L-L-D

Players to watch:

Alvaro Morata (Atletico Madrid)

Alvaro Morata hasn’t always been the most loved or most clinical player in the team. However, the Spaniard has been good in La Liga this season and will spearhead a Spanish attack that lacks a world-class striker up top, which leads them to fall short sometimes.

Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid)

Vinicius Junior is one of the shining stars of a shambolic Brazil team. The 23-year-old would be pivotal if an otherwise toothless-looking Brazillian side can hurt Spain.

Match Facts:

  • This match is organized by both the federations to take a stand against racism.

Injury and team news Spain vs Brazil:

Spain will be missing Valencia’s Jose Gaya through injury, with Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella replacing him in the squad. The frontline will be headed by Gerard Moreno, Mikel Oyarzabal and Alvaro Morata.

Meanwhile, Brazil have been missing loads of key players due to injury. Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel, Ederson, Alisson, Marquinhos and Casemiro all missing from the squad due to injury. Three uncapped keepers in Leo Jardim, Bento and Rafael have been called up into the squad. There are a total of 11 uncapped players called up to the current squad.  

Head-to-head:

Total matches – 9

Spain wins – 2

Brazil wins – 5
