In this game against El Salvador, we believe that coach Tite opts for the usual tactical system, that is, 4-3-3, in order to benefit possession of the ball and organized attacks. It is worth mentioning Coutinho, player that is fundamental piece within this cast. On the other hand, Neymar is the great highlight of this selection, being this one endowed with great speed and great ability in the individual confrontation. For this match the Brazilian technician must put in the field some players who did not act in the last confrontation and that can make his debut in the selection.

El Salvador's side are in for this motivated game after a 2-1 win against Monserrate in a duel with the CONCACAF Nations League. Highlight for the two goals that were scored by Oscar Cerén. In this confrontation against the powerful Brazil, the cast commanded by Carlos de los Cobos should appear with a very low block, in order to explore in the best way the spaces left by his opponent. Óscar Cerén is the main player in this type of transition. For this difficult game the coach can count on all his cast.
