What is the form of Brazil as compared to Senegal?
After staging a domineering campaign to win the 2019 Copa America, Brazil gave up a 17-game unbeaten run following a defeat to Peru in September. The Selecao enters Thursday's international friendly with Senegal in search of its first win in three games.
Prior to last month's disappointments, Tite's men were on a marauding winning run. Bar the draw against Venezuela in the group stage of the Copa America, the five-time world champions had won eight matches in succession, scoring an average of three goals per game.
While the statistics should induce induce fear into opposing teams, Senegal will also be hoping to ride on their own top performances in anticipation of a favorable outcome against the South Americans. The Teranga Lions are yet to fully recover from the heartbreak suffered after missing out on winning this summer's Africa Cup of Nations to Algeria.
The upcoming clash will be the Aliou Cisse's men since the conclusion of the tournament. Retrospectively, they enter the meeting with Brazil on the back of eight wins and two defeats in their last 10 matches.
With their star figures in Sadio Mane, Kalidou Koulibaly, Cheikhou Kouyate and the likes firing for the respective clubs, a convincing display should not be far off for the West Africans.

The upcoming encounter is the first between the two nations in the 21st century.
