As the USA prepares to host the 2024 Copa America, they face a challenging friendly against Brazil at the Camping World Stadium in Florida.

This matchup promises excitement, given the history and current form of both teams. Here's a detailed prediction, team news, and more about this highly anticipated game.

Team Form and Recent Performances

USA Team Form

The USA, under the guidance of Gregg Berhalter since August 2023, has shown mixed form.

They started strong with four wins in Berhalter's first five games, scoring 15 goals. However, they have struggled recently, losing three of their last five matches.

A notable low was the 5-1 defeat to Colombia, a game where the American defence showed significant vulnerabilities.

Brazil Team Form

Brazil, ranked fifth in the world by FIFA, has had a better run in 2024 under new head coach Dorival Junior.

After a disappointing end to 2023 with three consecutive losses in World Cup qualifying, they have bounced back with two wins and a draw in their last three matches.

Their latest victory was a thrilling 3-2 win over Mexico, showcasing their attacking prowess and resilience.

Team News and Predicted Lineups

USA Team News

Berhalter is expected to field a strong lineup, predominantly featuring players from Europe’s top leagues.

Cameron Carter-Vickers might start in central defence, and Tyler Adams could return to the midfield after an injury-hit season.

Christian Pulisic, just two goals away from becoming the USA’s fifth all-time top scorer, will likely start on the left wing.

USA Predicted Lineup: Turner; Scully, Carter-Vickers, Ream, A. Robinson; McKennie, Adams, Reyna; Weah, Balogun, Pulisic.

Brazil Team News

Brazil could see the return of Real Madrid stars Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo to the starting lineup.

Andreas Pereira, who scored his first international goal recently, may retain his spot in midfield. Defensive changes could include Marquinhos and Gabriel Magalhaes.

Brazil Predicted Lineup: Alisson; Danilo, Militao, Bremer, Arana; Pereira, Guimaraes, Paqueta; Rodrygo, Evanilson, Vinicius Jr.

Match Prediction

Given their recent form, Brazil enters this game as favourites. Despite some defensive shakiness, their attacking strength should see them through.

The USA, still reeling from their loss to Colombia, will aim to put up a strong fight, but a victory against Brazil seems unlikely.

Our Prediction: USA 1-3 Brazil
