Right now Brazil is one of the prominent team because this team has many young players which are very good and they are playing in the various well-known clubs like Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and so on. Neymar is one of the great players of this time. And after a long injury, he is back and playing really well in the current season with PSG. They also have players like Rodrygo, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino, Coutinho, Willian, Casemeiro and so on. They also have the best goalkeeper in the world right now, one and only Alison Becker.

On the other hand, Qatar is also a tough team that has been participating in Copa for a couple of times as they are the winner of the Asia Cup and also the reason behind they got invited to play in Copa America 2020. They have few good players in the team that makes it a balanced team but their attacking is quite good with Ismael Mohammed, Ahmed Alaaeldin, Almoez Ali, Mohammed Muntari.
Prediction: Brazil 3-0 Qatar
In my opinion, Brazil is going to win the match against Qatar by 3-0 on this Tuesday at Estadio Metropolitano
