This is the last opportunity for both teams to run down their drills and chalk strategies before the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Brazil has enjoyed a rich vein of form and is on a six-match unbeaten run. It comes to the contest on the back of a 3-0 win over Ghana last week where Marquinhos and Richarlison scored.
Brazil would also hope to bank on the form of star forward Neymar who leads the goals and assist charts in Ligue 1 this season.
Tunisia has also qualified for the World Cup in November, its second successive appearance at the global event. The African side has found its feet under the new manager Jalel Kadri. It beat heavyweight Nigeria in the Round of 16 in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations before going down to Burkina Faso in a shock defeat.
With only two months to the Qatar World Cup, Tunisia will look to get its experienced players like Khazri in shape and perfect condition.
