Overview

An underwhelming Brazil side come into their second tie on the back of a disappointing scoreless draw against Ecuador in their opening game of the 2016 Copa America Centenario tournament. The Selecao did not look dangerous with the ball and while they did not concede a goal, they did not score one either.

Coach Dunga has always favoured defensive discipline over attacking flair and while it might help stop opponents, it stymies their style of play leading to nothing in terms of goals. The team is certainly missing superstar Neymar, who will play in the Olympics rather than this competition.

The team has been bolstered by the addition of Sao Paulo and Gremio midfielders Ganso and Wallace who were summoned as replacements for Kaka and Luis Gustavo who withdrew ahead of the opening match.

Their opponents Haiti suffered an opening round 1-0 loss at the hands of Peru and another loss for them here would bring an end to their Copa America campaign. Coach Patrice Neveu will be hoping that his team fight as even a point from here will be enough to keep their hopes of qualification ahead of their final group game against Ecuador.
