Brazil has won five out of their last five matches, and they have been in exceptional form leading up to the competition.

- Xherdan Shaqiri, also known as alpine Messi, has consistently produced match-winning performances for his country. His claim to fame was his outstanding performance in the 2014 World Cup.
- Brazil is 15 games unbeaten leading up to the World Cup in Qatar. This is an excellent record to possess before heading to the World Cup. The last match they lost was the Copa America final to Argentina.
