Storylines

Brazil: Getting through is pretty simple for Brazil. Win and they are definitely in. A blowout victory would be needed to win the group, but even a draw is likely enough to get them through on goal differential in a third-place spot. Expect Brazil not to hold back though as a defeat to Italy could have them on the outside looking in. The pressure is on to get a result. 

Italy: Italy wins Group C with just a draw, while they could probably lose this game and still win the group with neither Brazil or Australia likely to overcome the goal differential. As things stand now, Italy would face either Nigeria, China or Chile in the round of 16. Those are opponents they should beat, and this is a match that should give them the chance to rest players if they want, so don’t be surprised to see a weakened lineup.
