Match facts

The two sides who won their opening Group A match meet as Mexico face the hosts Brazil.

Brazil were fortunate to beat Croatia 3-1 in the opening match of the World Cup, with a debatable spot-kick awarded to the hosts.

Fred was adjudged to have been fouled by Dejan Lovren, however the forward made the most of any contact.

Neymar converted and Brazil took the lead for the first time in the match, before the brilliant Oscar sealed the win late on.

As for Mexico they beat Cameroon 1-0, however it should have been three of four, due to incorrect refereeing decisions.

The former Barcelona midfielder Giovanni Dos Santos has two goals wrongly ruled out for offside in the first half.

Mexico’s pressure proved too much in the second half though and a Dos Santos effort was saved by Charles Itandje and Oribe Perlata tapped the rebound home.

A win for either side would all but guarantee them a place in the second round and that could be secured if a result in the Croatia Cameroon fixture goes their way.

The pair have met 38 times in international history and unsurprisingly Brazil have a better head to head record.

In the Confederations Cup, Brazil edged past Mexico 2-0, thanks to goals from Neymar and former Manchester City forward Jo.

World Cup best: Brazil five time winners (Last in 2002); Mexico twice quarter-finals (Last 1986)
2010 World Cup:
Brazil Quarter-finals; Mexico last 16

Team news

Both sides are expected to name the same starting XI’s that won their opening group games.

Oscar was excellent in the win over Croatia, with most of his game spent out wide right, with Neymar off Fred.

Fred was poor on the night, however with limited forward alternatives; he looks set to keep his place.

Paulinho was substituted for Hernanes and that may well be the only change if Luiz Felipe Scolari opts to rotate his side.

Mexico themselves will almost certainly name the same team that played so well against Cameroon on Friday evening.

That would see Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez miss out, given the exceptional form of forward Peralta.

Dos Santos was superb in the hole behind Peralta and his battle against Wolfsburg’s Luis Gustavo will be key.

Expected starting XI’s

Brazil (4-2-3-1): Cesar, Alves, Luiz, Silva, Marcelo, Luis Gustavo, Paulinho, Oscar, Neymar, Hulk, Fred
Mexico (3-4-2-1): Ochoa; F Rodriguez, Marquez, Moreno; Aguilar, Layun; Vazquez, Herrera; Guadrado, Dos Santos; Peralta
