Vinicius and Militão to be given Brazil breather against Tunisia

The two Real Madrid players will start from the bench in the friendly as Tite looks to give Fred and Danilo the opportunity to impress.

Brazil continue to make preparations for the World Cup in Qatar which begins in November. The entire squad, with Tite at the helm, carried out their last training session on French soil in the rain before they face the Tunisian national team.

Vinicius and Militão replaced by Fred and Danilo

The match will take place at the Parc des Princes in Paris at 20:30 local time (15:30 Brazil). And with this being the last match before the World Cup, Tite is looking to make the final adjustments and clear up the last of his doubts.

All indications suggest that the manager will play this match repeating nine of the starting eleven from the 3-0 victory over Ghana. Only Vinicius and Militão will disappear, leaving their places to Fred and Danilo. This change will see Lucas Paquetá move from the center of the field to occupy the attack on the left wing, or get ahead of the playmaker, to leave a double pivot formed by Fred and Casemiro, both now at Manchester United.

The possible formation against Tunisia

The predicted line-up for Brazil on Tuesday therefore is:

Alisson, Danilo, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Alex Telles; Casemiro, Fred, Lucas Paquetá, Raphinha; Neymar, Richarlison.

Although Weverton trained with the starters on Sunday, the Brazilian press reported that Alisson will continue to be the starter in the Brazilian goal.

Meanwhile, this latest training session for Tite’s men has left few clues. The coach let the media in to witness the start of it, where a collective warm-up and basic training were held, but no there was a distinction between regulars and substitutes.
