Head to Head Record
Brazil vs Haiti 9-1 (1959 Pan American Games)
Brazil vs Haiti Team News
The likes of Thiago Silva, David Luiz and Marcelo were all overlooked, with Neymar missing the Copa America finals as well. Kaka, Luiz Gustavo and Ricardo Oliviera were both forced to withdraw with injury. Brazil defender Miranda is unlikely to be risked against Haiti, meaning that PSG defender Marquinhos should keep his place in the starting line-up. Defender Gil and midfielders Casemiro and Elias are all one yellow card away from suspension.
Injured: Miranda (30/0), Kaka (92/29), Luiz Gustavo (41/2), Ricardo Oliviera (16/5)
Herve Bazile had been ruled out earlier with injury, while Max Hilaire picked up a knock against Peru and he is rated doubtful for the Brazil game. Jean-Marc Alexandre could replace Hilaire in the starting line-up, but coach Patrice Neveu has no fresh selection worries ahead of the second group game.
Injured: Herve Bazile (0/0)
Doubtful: Max Hilaire (9/0)
- Brazil scored nine goals in their only previous meeting with Haiti (9-1)
- The Selecao are undefeated in previous seven matches
- Willian has netted six goals for the Brazil national team to date
- Haiti are on a three-game losing run ahead of the Brazil game
- Patrice Neveu’s team are eyeing their first ever win at the Copa America finals
Brazil vs Haiti Prediction
David faces Goliath in Thursday’s match at Camping World Stadium. Brazil failed to impress in the goalless draw against Ecuador, but they are widely expected to pick up all three points from their second group game. Several key players miss the Copa America finals, but coach Carlos Dunga has a number of high-profile players, who are definitely capable of beating Haiti. Taking everything into account, the Selecao should record a routine win over Patrice Neveu’s troops.
