Brazil v Mexico: Predicted lineups
The host nation starts off the second round of Group Stage matches with a showdown of potentially epic preportions against Mexico.
If there is ever a nation that has surprised their South American cousins over the years it has been El Tri as they are one of the few countries to ever be part of South American national team tournaments.
However, Brazil will be the favored side after Mexico's struggles from the last year have seen their star far just a bit.
An opening round victory for both will mean that this match could potentially be the one that see's either one have one foot in the knockout stages, but Mexico is not expected to go quietly without a fight.
Hulk is expected to miss the match for Brazil after suffering a training injury on Sunday and could see Bernard take his place in the first team. Oscar and Neymar will still most certainly be the focus of the host nation's attack.
Javier Hernandez is again expected to start from the bench after manager Miguel Herrera's side secured an opening round victory and he is likely to field the same first team that defeated Cameroon.
Brazil Starting XI: Cesar: Alves, Luiz, Silva, Marcelo; Gustavo, Paulinho; Oscar, Neymar, Bernard; Fred.
Mexico Starting XI: Ochoa: Rodriguez, Marquez, Moreno; Aguilar, Herrera, Vazquez, Guardado, Layun; Peralta, Santos.
