Preview

Spain are coming into the Confederations Cup 2013 Final to face the hosts Brazil in exhaustion after a long battle with Italy and humid weather, also with one day less to rest.

The Selecao are in a great run of form, 10 games unbeaten and running while winning their last 5 fixtures.

The last time Brazil lost at home in a competition was in 1975, and Scolari is optimistic that they can break Espana’s world domination.

The last time these two heavy-weights met was in 1999. The two have met eight times with the South American winning four, drawing two and losing two to the European Champions.

The last time La Roja won against Brazil in a competition was in the World Cup 1934 but in their current form, Spain are in a state to face just anybody on this planet.

They have won their last six meetings against South American opponents, including friendlies.
