What channel is Spain vs Brazil in USA? Live stream, TV, lineups, odds for international friendly on Fubo

For the first time in over a decade, Spain will take on Brazil as the two top-ten ranked nations clash at the Bernabeu in Madrid for an international friendly.

The two sides have not met since the 2012 Confederations Cup, when a brace from Fred plus a third from a 20-year-old Neymar saw Brazil run away as 3-0 winners.

It will be the final chance for the two national teams to see the field before this summer when they will gear up for their respective major tournaments. Brazil will contest the Copa America in the United States hoping for a return to glory, while Spain travel to Germany for the European Championships, where they are without a title since winning back-to-back crowns in 2008 and 2012.

Real Madrid’s home stadium is the perfect venue for this event, as four players evenly split across the two sides play for Los Blancos, while a fifth in Brazil’s young star Endrick is on his way to the Spanish capital in short order.

The Sporting News brings you everything you need to know ahead of the major international friendly from the Bernabeu, including how to watch, who could play, and who may come out on top.

Spain vs Brazil lineups & team news

It’s unclear how much Spain boss Luis de la Fuente will rotate his team after deploying an experimental side in the loss to Colombia. As he works to decide some selection calls ahead of Euro 2024, the starting line up is expected to be a bit closer to the one he is considering for the tournament, but that remains to be seen.

Those who were sat against Colombia who could be recalled include Alvaro MorataDani Carvajal, and Rodri, who all either came off the bench as a sub (Morata) or were unused entirely (Carvajal and Rodri). Their introduction could see the likes of Martin Zubimendi and Pedro Porro withdrawn, while the availability of striker Joselu is unclear due to an illlness.

David Raya started in goal and traded halves with Alex Remiro, but it’s expected that Unai Simon will be the first-choice selection here. Young Barcelona stars Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi came off the bench against Colombia, and De la Fuente could give them a bigger role in this game if he chooses to see their abilities from the opening whistle.

Spain predicted XI (4-3-3, right to left): Simon (GK) — Carvajal, Le Normand, Laporte, Grimaldo — F. Ruiz, Rodri, Merino — N. Williams, Morata, Olmo.

Brazil head coach Dorival Junior has brought a very young and inexperienced side to Europe for the games against England and Spain, and it was young star Endrick who bagged the late winner against England. The new Real Madrid teenager could be rewarded for his bright introduction at Wembley with a subsequent start in Madrid.

Tottenham striker Richarlison or exciting Girona winger Savio Moreira could also be drafted into the attack, although Rodrigo and Vinicius Jr were both exceptional against England and dropping either would be harsh. Bruno Guimaraes and Lucas Paqueta were both strong in midfield as well, although the latter struggled with discipline, and one of them could be sacrificed if Douglas Luiz is handed a start.

24-year-old Athletico Paranaense goalkeeper Bento put in a solid 90 minutes at Wembley in his first international appearance, and now Dorival Junior must decide if he wishes to stick with the youngster or give either Rafael or Leo Jardim their debut cap. Juventus centre-back Bremer is likely to be recalled, with 20-year-old PSG youth product Beraldo brought to the bench.

Brazil predicted XI (4-3-3 right to left): Bento (GK) — Danilo, Bremer, Bruno, Wendell — Guimaraes, Paqueta, Savio — Endrick, Richarlison, Vinicius Jr.

Spain vs Brazil prediction, betting odds & lines

  • Moneyline lean: Brazil (+170)
  • Score prediction: Spain 0-2 Brazil

Following surprising results from both sides last time out, the betting market has absolutely no idea what to do with this match.

Spain fell to Colombia 1-0 in their friendly on Saturday, deploying a largely experimental side with a number of second-choice players that couldn’t handle the moment. Brazil, meanwhile, saw their own second-choice squad shock England at Wembley by the same score, with wonderkid Endrick scoring the winner 10 minutes from full-time.

The Selecao, who have been mired in a brutal slump, looked impressive in that match, even with a significant number of first-team players out of the squad entirely. Endrick picked out the winner, but on the whole, Brazil were far better than England.
