Teams: Austria v Brazil 

Date: 10 June 2018

Venue: Ernst-Happel-Stadion

Brazil will be looking to end their World Cup preparations on high when they take on Austria in an international friendly this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 16h00.

Coming into the encounter, Selecao are unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions, which includes a 2-0 win over Croatia last weekend.

The Brazilians suffered a setback in training this week when Manchester United-bound Fred sustained an ankle injury following a tackle from Casemiro.

Austria, meanwhile, come into the clash on the back of a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Austria last weekend.

These two sides have only met on three occasions in the past, with the five-time World Cup winners winning all three encounters.

This will be Brazil's final friendly before their opening World Cup encounter against Switzerland.
Here's how they line up:
Austria: Lindner; Dragovic, Prödl, Hinteregger;  Lainer, Baumgartlinger, Grillitsch, Alaba; Schöpf, Arnautovic, Schlager.

Brazil: Alisson; Danilo, Silva, Miranda, Marcelo; Paulinho, Casemiro, Coutinho; Willian, Gabriel Jesus, Neymar.
