|In their last pre-World Cup (WC) friendly encounter, five-time WC winners Brazil face in-form Austria at the Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna. After failing to qualify for the WC for the fifth time in a row, the Austrians will hope to extend their impressive winning streak to eight.|
|As a result of a disappointing 2018 WC qualification campaign (W4, D3, L3), the Austrians finished fourth in WC qualifying Group D. After a surprise 1-1 draw against Georgia at home back in September, Franco Foda’s men reacted superbly with eight straight wins, including a great friendly performance in overturning Germany 2-1 at home last weekend.|
|After finishing top of the CONMEBOL qualifying Group, Brazil are one of the favourites to win the WC. Moreover, Tite’s side come into this one on the back of a great sequence of results, consisting of an important 1-0 away win against Germany before recording their third straight friendly success against Croatia (2-0) at Anfield last Sunday.|
|In nine previous meetings with Brazil in all competitions, Austria have a dreadful record that currently stands at: W0, D3, L6, and have a negative H2H goal difference of minus nine (GF5, GA14). Having never lost a single clash against Austria, the visitors have the added luxury of having the psychological advantage.|
|Players to watch: Austria’s best player in the 2018 WC qualifiers was Marko Arnautović with four goals and three assists.|
|Star striker Neymar is the fourth-top scorer in the Brazilian national team’s history with 54 goals.|
|Stat attack: The Austrians have lost only one of their last eight friendly fixtures (W5, D2, L1), scoring at least two goals in half of them.|
|Brazil have won 14 of their last 15 away friendly games (W14, D1), scoring at least two goals in twelve them.|
|Overall, six of the last seven clashes between the two sides have produced less than 2.5 goals (total).|
