Brazil x Germany: probable starting line ups World Cup semi-final 8 July 2014
Brazil take on Germany on Tuesday in the Mineirão in Belo Horizonte for a place in the World Cup final.
Luis Felipe Scolari’s team will have to make do without injured super star Neymar, and captain Thiago Silva who is suspended. Bayern Munich’s Dante is expected to come in for Silva. With defensive midfielder Luis Gustavo returning from suspension, it is likely that Tottenham’s Paulinho will make way. Chelsea player, Willian, is favourite to replace Neymar. But Scolari could yet surprise the Germans. Against Chile, the Brazil coach threw in Maicon in place of Daniel Alves. But the Barcelona right back could make a return against Joachim Löw’s team.
Brazil (probable): Júlio César, Daniel Alves (Maicon), David Luiz, Dante, Marcelo, Luiz Gustavo, Fernandinho, Oscar, Willian (Paulinho), Hulk, Fred
Coach: Luiz Felipe Scolari
Germany (possible): Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Hummels, Howedes, Schweinsteiger, Khedira, Kroos, Ozil, Klose (Gotze), Muller
