Brazil vs Italy

In FIFA Confederation Cup, Football on June 19, 2009 at 12:17

By Joe,


One of the most anticipated games in Group B between Brazil and Italy. Brazil has already done enough to qualify for the semifinal stages of the Confederations Cup. Italy are in a need of a win to put them through to the semifinals. The Italians have put themselves into this situation and they really need to step it up or otherwise Egypt could be the surprising package that will go through to the semifinals.

Brazil could send the current World Cup holders out of the tournament. Brazil might have to field their strongest side and might take the option of resting a few of his starting lineup players as he prepares for the semifinal showdown in which Del Bosque could be reluctant to do so as Italy are not a team to be set aside. He will be without defender Juan and might start Kaka on the bench. There is a good chance that Alexandre Pato and Elano might be featuring against Italy from the start. Never the less, Brazil will always bring a good game of football no matter what the occasion is.

Brazil have scored on an average of 3 goals per game so could we expect another goal feast against Italy?
Italy are known for their slow starts in tournaments and they have not disappointed us so far. They have really put themselves on testing grounds after their embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Egypt in their last game. Coach Lippi knows they must get a result against the Brazilians and he can’t afford to experiment with his attacking formation. He had used Rossi and Iaquinta against Iraq and Luca Toni and Gilardino in their opening match. He must now make a decision which partnerships he will bring in the dividends at the end of the day. Italy needs to get over the defeat against Egypt and concentrate on beating the Brazilians.

Italy somehow just could not score against Egypt. If this happens again against Brazil, then they might exit this tournament, unless Egypt loses to USA. Italy could turn up their game against the Brazilians. Del Bosque has no intentions to give a helping hand to Italy so expect a thrilling finale to Group B. These two teams met earlier this season at the Emirates Stadium in London, Brazil were victorious on the night as they won 2-0, thanks to Robinho and Elano.  Have a look at mybet as they are offering 2.95 for Italy to win.
