The five-time world champions will meet their World Cup 2014 executioners in March 2018 as the Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour hits Berlin

Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour is delighted to announce that Brazil will travel to Berlin to meet Germany on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.

The clash, which will take place at the Olympiastadion, will mark the first time the two nations have met since their historic semi-final meeting at World Cup 2014, which saw eventual winners Germany run out 7-1 winners in Belo Horizonte.

Brazil's Under-23 side met their German counterparts in the final of last year's Rio Olympics, taking the gold medal on penalties. 

Five-time world champions Brazil last met their opponents on German soil in August 2011, when goals from Robinho and Neymar could not prevent the Selecao going down 3-2 in Stuttgart.

Brazil have never lost an official match in the German capital, however. They grabbed victories over West Germany in 1973, beat Croatia at World Cup 2006, and played out a 1-1 draw with Germany at the Olympiastadion in 2004.

Next year’s matchup will be the Selecao’s final friendlies prior to the announcement of their squad for Russia 2018, providing they secure qualification.

Brazil could do that this month in matches against Uruguay and Paraguay after coach Tite led the side to six consecutive victories following his June 2016 appointment.
