Two of the biggest nations in football will clash on Tuesday at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, where reigning world champions Germany host Brazil in an international friendly match. Brazil might not regard this match as a friendly, though, because the last time they met Germany they got hammered 7-1 in front of their own fans at the 2014 World Cup. Moreover, Brazil have not won against Germany since the 2005 Confederations Cup. Germany have won the last two direct matches against Brazil.
Defending world champions Germany had to go through qualifying like everybody else in order to reach next summer's World Cup in Russia, but they made quick work of it: ten wins out of ten matches, 43 goals scored and just 4 conceded. However, the Germans were unable to win any of the three friendly matches that they played after the qualification campaign: 0-0 in England, 2-2 against France and 1-1 against Spain last week. Emre Can, Thomas Muller and Mesut Ozil were withdrawn from the squad due to injury concerns.
Brazil have something to prove to their fans after the shameful exit that they endured at the 2014 World Cup, they need to bring the trophy home from Russia to be forgiven. The qualification campaign was very good, Brazil won the South American qualifying group by a landslide and lost just one of their eighteen matches during the campaign. Last week they eased to a 3-0 friendly victory over World Cup hosts Russia. Alex Sandro and Filipe Luis are out of contention for Tuesday's match.
Germany: Ter Stegen - Kimmich, Boateng, Sule, Plattenhardt - Kroos, Gundogan - Draxler, Goretzka, Sane - Wagner
Brazil: Alisson - Alves, T. Silva, Miranda, Marcelo - Fernandinho, Casemiro, Paulinho - Willian, Jesus, Coutinho
My prediction: 2-2 draw.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Germany win - 2.50

I think after the recent friendly results we could say Brazil and Spain seems to be the main favourites for the World Cup but sometimes these friendly results don't mean nothing really.
I still believe Germany would be amongst the best teams on the finals and would predict that they will reach at least the semis, and after that who knows.
