Tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST will be the Brazil vs. Haiti game at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The Brazil football team is scheduled to kick start the Copa America 2016 in the Group B campaign. It is predicted that Brazil will make an easy win, but we guess we’ll have to watch to find out. The Brazil lineup includes goalkeepers Diego Alves, Marcelo Grohe, and Alisson. Also in the Brazil predicted lineup are defenders Dani Alves, Rodrigo Caio, Fabinho and Filipe Luis. The forwards are Gabriel, Hulk and Jonas.

According to the official Copa America web site, Dani Alves, Willian, and Hulk are the players to watch. Under the direction of coach Dunga, who won Copa America twice as a player and led Brazil to win in 2007, hopefully Brazil will take the bull by the horns and win the game.

Brazil is desperate for success, as they haven’t been doing well recently. They were crushed by Germany 7-1 in the Selecao and were only able to pick up steam against Ecuador, though it was a lackluster 0-0 draw that wasn’t expected by many to be a performance of the almighty Brazilian team. Although this time around in the match against Haiti, the odds are in their favor. Haiti does not have the same attacked power nor are they a primary threat to Brazil’s defense.

Still, it might be a close game considering the omission of star players such as Douglas Costa, Kaka, Luiz Gustavo, Rafinha, Ricardo Oliveira, and Ederson, which leaves Brazil with a youthful squad that might cost them the game due to lack of experience. Brazil is heavily favored in the game, but if Haiti is able to post even a draw against them, there could be a huge result and Brazil could be in trouble. We’ll be watching the game closely—it’ll be an interesting one for sure!
