Brazil and Tunisia lock horns at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France on Tuesday for an international friendly as both sides continue their preparations for the upcoming World Cup.

The Selecao are aiming to end a 20-year drought and lift their sixth title of the year after qualifying unscathed.

Tite’s sovereign side were drawn alongside Serbia, Cameroon and Switzerland in Group G in the final.

Meanwhile, Tunisia qualified for the second time in a row and secured direct qualification to Qatar after beating Mali 1-0 in the third round of CAF qualifying.

However, they were rewarded with a tough draw against reigning champions France along with Denmark and Australia.

The Eagles of Carthage have never made it past the group stage at the World Cup in any of their previous five appearances.

Brazil vs Tunisia Team News

Brazil

After brushing Ghana aside in their last game, Brazil have little reason to make any changes to their lineup. However, with no further friendlies before the World Cup, Tite may give others a chance.

Ederson could come in for Alisson in goal, with Fabinho replacing Casemiro in the centre of the park, owing to the latter’s lack of gametime so far this season.

Injured: None

Tunisia

The Eagles of Carthage saw off Comoros in their last game and could lineup with the same starting XI once more on Tuesday.

Prolific striker Wahbi Khazri is going through a dry spell with the side right now, having drawn a blank since January this year.

The Montpellier forward will be hoping to change that and return to scoring ways.
