Brazil trained on Wednesday on the eve of their Copa America quarter-final match against Paraguay on Thursday.

The last two times Brazil met its southern neighbor in the continental competition, the "Seleção" endured demoralizing eliminations. It happened in the quarterfinals in 2011 and in 2015, both times in penalty shootouts.

Brazil will face Paraguay in the last eight again on Thursday, this time under even more pressure at home.

As in the previous encounters, Brazil will be considered the favorite to advance. Despite struggling in its first two matches, drawing boos from the local fans, it ended the group stage with a convincing 5-0 rout of Peru that boosted the team's confidence entering the knockout stage.
