Brazil vs Senegal Preview

Brazil take on their second friendly in three days against West African nations – as they face Senegal at the Estadio Jose Alvalade. Ramon Menezes took over as the interim coach of Brazil post the World Cup, after Tite stepped down from his role as head coach following Brazil’s underwhelming campaign at Qatar. The Selecao side were knocked out from the quarter finals by Croatia in penalties. Since then, the former Under-20 coach has been allotted the important task of transitioning through this period until they appoint their next permanent head coach. His first game with the star-studded side was against Morocco back in March, where a later Sabiri winner in the 79th minute helped the African side register a surprise 2-1 victory over the Brazilians. However, the South American side were in full flow against Guinea three days back, where Joelinton and Rodrygo scored in a span of three minutes. This was coupled with second half goals by Militao and Vinicius Junior, giving Brazil a well-deserved 4-1 victory. The number 3 ranked team in FIFA rankings have won all but one of their last six international friendlies in the last calender year – and will be favorites tonight as well to clinch the victory over the African giants.

Senegal on the other hand, were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw against Benin on Sunday that saw them lose their 100% winning record in the AFCON qualifiers. They currently sit on top of Group L with 13 points to their name with 4 wins and 1 draw. The reigning AFCON champions kicked off their qualification campaign in June 2022, emerging victorious against the likes of Benin and Rwanda in their opening two fixtures, after which they won the double header against Mozambique with an aggregate score of 6-1 over the two matches. Aliou Cisse’s side are of the 10 sides to have already qualified for the tournament as they look to defend their title in Ivory Coast. Without a defeat in their last 7 matches, Senegal will surely give Brazil a run for their money ahead of tonight’s mouth-watering clash at Lisbon. Both sides have faced each other on only one occasion previously, where strikers from Firmino and Diedhiou meant both sides had to settle for a draw.
