Tonight's friendly between Brazil & Senegal will showcase some high-quality attackers on the top of their game
Here's all you need to know ahead of the glamour clash in Singapore on a night when we might catch a glimpse of the mercurial talent of Neymar Jr.
☄️ Liverpool & EPL represented strongly
Two of Liverpool’s front three line up on opposing sides when the Champions of South America come up against Senegal, the team that came so close to lifting AFCON 2019 gold, eventually falling to Algeria in the final. Reds strike-duo Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané must put club allegiances aside for one night before they travel to Old Trafford as teammates once more to face Man United on October 20th.
Since the summer’s Copa América win, Brazil has seen their 17-game unbeaten run finally snapped by Peru last month. Senegal suffered heartbreak in the Africa Cup of Nations final against Algeria, but the core of a talented young squad remains and the future looks bright.
In addition to Firmino and Mané, Ismaila Sarr, Cheikhou Kouyaté and Richarlison are the other Premier League stars who might make an appearance.
🧮 Team news
Another Liverpool man, goalkeeper Alisson Becker, has remained on Merseyside to complete the final stages of his injury recovery, and Juventus full-back Danilo withdrew from the squad with a knock. Renan Lodi is in line to make his international debut after an impressive start to the season with Atletico Madrid as their first-choice left-back. He will be challenged for that spot by Juventus man Alex Sandro.
Senegal coach Aliou Cissé has recalled Pape Djibril Diaw, Racine Coly, Sidy Sarr, Mamadou Loum Ndiaye, Famara Diédhiou and Habib Diallo to his group. Krépin Diatta is also too talented and versatile to leave out.
🔮 Predicted XIs
Ederson; Alves, Thiago Silva, Militão, Lodi; Arthur, Casemiro, Coutinho; Richarlison, Firmino, Neymar
Gomis; Gassana, Koulibaly, Sané, Wagué; N'Diaye, Gueye, Kouyaté; Sarr, Mané, Diatta
