With Foda's men in strong form, Al Hain-Cole does not expect victory to come easy for the World Cup favourites at the Ernst-Happel Stadion on Sunday

Brazil complete their World Cup preparations with a friendly clash against Austria at the Ernst-Happel Stadion on Sunday.

The Selecao will head to Russia as favourites to lift the trophy after losing just once in 18 South American qualification matches, and have won four and lost none of their five exhibition matches since.

Latest Odds

Having run out 2-1 winners in their previous visit to Vienna back in 2014, they are 1/2 (1.50) favourites with dabblebet to maintain their excellent form with another victory here.

The Burschen recorded a surprise 2-1 victory over Germany last week and are available at 5/1 (6.00) to pull off another upset in this one, or 3/1 (4.00) to earn a respectable draw.

Team News

Neymar scored on his return to the line-up following a three-month injury absence against Croatia last week, although Fred and Renato Augusto are both doubts for this match after sustaining knocks in training.

Franco Foda has included four uncapped players in his squad, with high profile members such as Marcel Sabitzer, Valentino Lazaro, Michael Gregoritsch, Maximilian Wober and Marc Janko all ruled out through injury.

Impressive Austria

Despite missing out on a place in Russia, the hosts have given plenty of reasons for optimism over the last few months.

Foda’s men are currently enjoying a seven-match winning streak, with three of their last five vanquished opponents taking part in this summer’s World Cup.

Although they will struggle to stand between Tite’s star-studded team and victory, the confident Austrians will therefore back themselves to avoid a heavy defeat in Vienna after letting in just two goals in their last six games.

Predictions

Having conceded just four times in 17 matches themselves, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem generous on Brazil coming out on top in match featuring under 3.5 goals for their fourth consecutive outing.
