Why Brazil would win?
Brazil runs the ball with Robinho, Silva, and Fabiano with great skill, smooth orchestration, solid execution, that deliver goal after goal.
Kaka is suspended for this game but the remaining players are more than enough to make a good run.
This team has a solid defense but their offense make their defense shine less as this team simply controls possession of the ball 3/4 of the time.
Brazil has proven their consistency and managed to win all their games in FIFA World Cup 2010.
This team is going to come out blazing.
Why Portugal would win?
Portugal is a determined team anchored on Cristiano Ronaldo who the best player in the world behind only to Argentine Lionel Messi.
They has scored a draw against Ivory Coast and doubts were cast on their ability to win especially when Ivory Coast main man, Didier Drogba was playing hurt.
With their backs against the wall vs Korea DPR, they scored 7 goals, the highest in this tournament and the highest in Portugal World Cup history. While Korea DPR is an inferior team, Brazil didn’t score half the goals Portugal did against them.
This is the most anticipated game of the group stage where two high profile, high caliber, winning teams meet.
Both these teams boast a number of the best players in the world and expect this match to be electrifying.
