Brazil x Russia: probable starting line ups 25 March 2013
Brazil take on Russia at Stamford Bridge on Monday with Luiz Felipe Scolari hoping for his first win since returning to take charge of the seleção. Felipão lost his opener 2-1 to England, and last week had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Italy. For the game against Russia, the coach is expected to bring in Thiago Silva, Marcelo and Kaká as Dante, Filipe Luís and Hulk make way. With Chelsea’s David Luiz and Oscar in the starting line-up, there is certain to be lots of support for Brazil. Ramires, though, will miss out through injury.
Brazil (probable): Julio César, Daniel Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo, Fernando, Hernanes, Oscar, Kaká, Neymar, Fred
Coach: Luiz Felipe Scolari
Russia (possible): Akinfeyev, Anyukov (Yeshchenko), Ignashevich, Berezutsky, Kombarov, Shirokov, Denisov, Samedov (Bystrov), Faizulin, Kerzhakov, Kokorin
