In a sentence: The hosts of the forthcoming World Cup continue their build up by hosting the five time champions and this summer’s second favourites.
Last time: The teams played out a 1-1 draw five years ago this week. Viktor Fayzulin gave Russia a surprise lead, before Fred equalised in the last minute. Football predictions are tough, but Russia have yet to beat Brazil and they are unlikely too in this match either.
This time: Russia are 7/2 to win with Brazil at 4/7 and the draw 13/5.
You might remember: A 5-1 win for Brazil back in 1998. Rivaldo was among the scorers, netting a penalty just before half time to put Brazil 3-0 up.
