Brazil vs Australia live stream info & TV listings - FIFA WWC 2015

June 19, 2015 By Michelle Bonsu
It will be a re-match between Brazil and Australia in the knockout rounds as they clash in Moncton for the WWC round of 16 on Sunday, June 21st. Read on to find some online streaming & live TV listings options for Brazil vs. Australia.

Will the third time prove to be the lucky one?

That is surely the question Australia must be asking themselves after again being paired with Brazil in the knockout rounds of the World Cup. The Matildas first faced the Canarinhas back in the 2007 edition in China and despite putting up a valiant effort, were unable to find a way past Marta and her colleagues as the South Americans powered past them 3-2 in the quarter-finals. Four years after that, they were pitted against Sweden but were outclassed as the Blågult defeated them 3-1 to end their tournament after clawing their way through the group stages.

And now, for the second time in eight years, they find Brazil standing in their way and progressing past the first knockout rounds. This time around, due to the tournament's expansion, it now starts at the round of 16, meaning that teams will have to play an extra game just to get to the final. For Australia, getting to this stage was far from easy. They first had to come back from a 3-1 loss to the USA by powering past Nigeria to seal three important points, and held Sweden to a draw to avoid finishing third in their group.

However, the Matildas are brimming with confidence. Co-captain Lisa De Vanna, whose early goal against the Swedes was enough to earn them second place in a tough group, gave an interesting response when asked about the threat of Brazil, who will be led by five-time FIFA World Player of the year Marta:

"We have the world's best young player, and that's [defender] Caitlin Foord," the fiery attacker noted prior to her team's big game.

"So if she's on top of her game, Marta will be in for a real shock. I'm not worried about Marta. But if I were her, I would be worried about Caitlin Foord."

Meanwhile, despite having a relatively quiet World Cup campaign so far, Marta, with her goal against South Korea, has already written her name into the history books. With 15 goals, she is now the all-time top goal-scorer in this tournament and will be keen on adding more to that tally. Despite enjoying countless success at personal level and in South America with Brazil, she has yet to lift the title she has sought after since featuring in her first World Cup back in 2003 at the young age of 17.

Brazil have never finished higher than second in a World Cup tournament, having to settle for a runners-up medal eight years ago as Germany won their second consecutive title. In terms of their performances so far, they are the only side in the last 16 who have yet to concede a goal. Their head-to-head record against Australia is also pretty solid, with seven wins and four losses since their first meeting back in 1988.

Although the Canarinhas have yet to really show their firepower, their defense has been nothing short of rock-solid at the back. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the Australians, who, despite netting four goals in the group stages - the same as Brazil - conceded four times, with three alone coming against the USA. Yet, although the odds are stacked in favour of the South Americans, Australia's coach Alen Stajcic believes his side should be given more credit where it's due:

"Anyone ranked in the top 10 to 12 places [in the world] can win the World Cup...and all the top teams are beatable by the next five or six in the pecking order—and I put us in that bracket," he analysed whilst interviewed by American publication Bleacher Report.

On Sunday, Australia will again try their luck to get past the first knock-out rounds. Will the third time be the charm for the Matildas? Or will they see their hopes dashed yet again by a familiar opponent in Brazil?
