Brazil x Chile: probable starting line-ups 24 April 2013
Brazil take on Chile in a friendly in the estádio Mineirão on Wednesday evening. The fixture is part of the Seleção’s build-up to the Confederations Cup, which gets underway in June. Unusually, Luiz Felipe Scolari did not divulge his starting line-up, though he did confirm Ronaldinho as captain. Scolari is expected to name his squad for the Confederations Cup on May 14th, so this will be the last chance for Felipão to experiment with his players before the final call-up.
Brazil and Chile have met 65 times with the Seleção coming out on top in 45 games compared to Chile’s 7 victories. The last time Chile beat Brazil was a 3-0 win in 2000 in Santiago for the World Cup qualifiers.
