Brazilian coach Dunga will hope to come out of the match with all three points 

On the sixth day of Copa America’s 100th edition, Brazil are set to take on minnows Haiti in a group B fixture on Wednesday. Brazil will be looking to see off their opponents and take the much needed three points from the game following a disappointing goalless draw against Ecuador. On the other hand, Haiti will need at least a point from this fixture to keep their qualification hopes alive as they sit bottom of the table after a 1-0 loss at the hands of Peru in their opening game.

The match will be live from 05:00 IST, 12:30 BST (Thursday). Watch live streaming of Brazil v/s Haiti on Sony Liv, FoxSoccer2Go or Premier Player . You can catch the live commentary on Sportskeeda. You can also watch the live telecast of Brazil v/s Haiti on Sony ESPN and Sony ESPN HD in India, Fox Sports in USA and Premier Sports in UK. The match will be played at the Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, Florida. 

The ‘ Selecaos’ will look to bounce back from their lacklustre performance against Ecuador in their first game. Though they held 70% of the ball possession, they were unable to pose any questions to the opposing defence. With coach Dunga preferring defensive discipline over attacking flair, it has hindered their style of play and does not offer much in terms of goals.

Brazil will be hoping this changes with the additions of Sao Paulo and Gremio midfielders Ganso and Wallace who were summoned as replacements for Kaka and Luis Gustavo who withdrew ahead of the opening match. 

Brazil’s problems up front have been sounded by centre-back Marquinhos too, who has warned his team from making the same mistakes against Haiti as they did in their goalless draw against Ecuador. "We had a few goal scoring opportunities that were wasted; we can't let that happen with Haiti,” the 22-year-old said in a press conference. "We need to respect our opponent and know that nothing is given to us just because we are Brazil. We need to perform and we need to earn all the points we get."

Brazil are desperately missing their star player Neymar, who has opted to play for Brazil in the Rio Olympics 2016. Dunga will be depending on Willian and Philippe Coutinho to provide the creativity that the side needs.

Their opponents Haiti suffered a narrow defeat against Peru in their first game of the group, unable to convert their chances to hand Peru all three points. Coach Patrice Neveu will be hoping that his team fight and come out of the tie with at least a point to have a chance of qualifying, going into their last game against Ecuador.

Predicted XI

Brazil: Alisson, Alves, Gil, Marquinhos, Ganso, Casemiro, Elias, Augusto, Willian, Coutinho, Jonas

Haiti: Placide, Goreux, Genevois, Jerome, Jaggy, Marcelin, Lafrance, Hilaire, Louis, Nazon, Guerriero
