Brazil vs Bosnia-Herzegovina Preview

February 27, 2012 By Gregory Sica
Neymar will be hoping to lead Brazil to a comprehensive victory when they travel to St. Gallen to take on Bosnia in an international friendly match on Tuesday.

Team News

Mano Menezes will yet again field an experimental Brazil squad for Tuesday's friendly match against Bosnia & Herzegovina. Milan-based players Alexandre Pato, Robinho, Lucio and Maicon have all been overlooked by the coach, as have Real Madrid's Kaka and Manchester United twins Fabio and Rafael.

The biggest news in the Brazil camp is that two-time World Player of the Year Ronaldinho was recalled by Menezes after a number of fine performances with Flamengo in recent weeks. 

According to reports, Menezes' desired attacking partnership will comprise of Leandro Damiao and Hulk, whilst the Santos pair of Paulo Henrique Ganso and Neymar will feature on either flank of the midfield.

Meanwhile, massive underdogs Bosnia will be hoping to rebound after missing out on qualification for Euro 2012 at the hands of Portugal last November. The Balkans will field a strong side, with Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko being ever-present in their dangerous attack.

Form

The Selecao come into the fixture having lost only one of their last fifteen games, and will be hoping to continue with their good run of results under Menezes. Having won five games in a row, where they scored a total of nine goals and only conceded one, they will rate their chances of obtaining their sixth consecutive win against the Bosnians in St. Gallen. 

Rivals Bosnia will play their first game since failing to qualify for the European Championship, when they lost the two-legged qualification playoff against Portugal 6-2 on aggregate. Before that defeat the Eastern Europeans had held France to an impressive 1-1 draw in Saint-Denis. Bosnia boss Safet Susic will be hoping that his team can continue to match it with the world's top sides.

Players to Watch

Neymar - Despite the fact that he will be playing in a slightly deeper role than usual, the skilful Santos star will be hoping to turn on the style against a side who are very vulnerable in defense. If Neymar is in top form he will likely get on the score-sheet.

Dzeko - The tall Manchester City striker will be looking to make an impact against the five-time world champions, and if he is provided with adequate service he could cause Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar a number of problems.

Prediction

The Selecao are on a completely different scale when compared to Bosnia, but despite being below full-strength are still expected to pick up a comfortable victory. However, if they aim to achieve this they shouldn't underestimate a Bosnia outfit that has improved significantly in recent times.

The Verdict:

Brazil 2-0 Bosnia
