Dunga and Bielsa set to go head to head

Brazil take on Chile in the Ellis Park stadium in Johannesburg this afternoon (15:30 Brasilia/19:30 London) for a place in the last eight in the World Cup.

Kaká is back from suspension but Felipe Melo is expected to miss the tie through injury. Josué should come in. Elano is a doubt after an ankle injury picked up versus the Ivory Coast. Daniel Alves is on stand-by.

Chile coach, Marcelo Bielsa, will have Carmona and Matías Fernandez available. But Ponce and Medel are suspended. Front man, Suazo, should be fit.

Brazil start as heavy favourites with a record of 46 wins, 12 draws, and 7 losses against their fellow South Americans.

Brazil: Júlio César, Maicon, Lúcio, Juan, Michel Bastos, Gilberto Silva, Josué, Elano, kaka, Robinho, Luís Fabiano

Coach: Dunga

Chile: Bravo, Isla, Contreras, Jara, Vidal, Carmona, Milar, Matias Fernández, Sánchez, Suazo, Beausejour

Officials: Howard Webb, Darren Cann, Michael Mullarkley (all England)
