Here is how you can live stream the match online with TV channel and time information
first press conference as a Brazil player in almost a year, star striker Neymar said believes he is in the top moment of his career and plays for the best national team in the world.
The 25-year-old star also admitted he had to mature after a series of controversies on and off the pitch and promised Brazil would be one of the favorites in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Brazil have been a juggernaut in South American World Cup qualifying so far and they look to continue their domination with a win at home against Paraguay. They have won eight consecutive games and another win against Paraguay on Tuesday could see Brazil become the first nation to clinch a spot for Russia 2018, assuming other results go their way.
Coming off a tremendous 4-1 away win against second place and historical foe Uruguay, Brazil seem to have recaptured some of their luster of old. Against Uruguay, it was the Chinese Super League star (and former Tottenham player) Paulinho who netted a hat-trick. Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Casemiro all seem to be in top form at the moment, making Brazil a clear favorite against seventh-place Paraguay.
Brazil head coach Tite has two lineup concerns to worry about, as forward Roberto Firmino has been set back due to a throat inflammation, and Dani Alves is suspended.
Brazil’s World Cup qualifying campaign has so far gone swimmingly, with Tite’s men sitting seven points clear at the top of the group with five rounds left to play. They recorded their seventh straight qualifying win last week, seeing off closest competitors Uruguay with an emphatic 4-1 victory in Montevideo. They can’t ease up just yet, but their place at Russia 2018 is almost assured.
Their next qualifier comes on Tuesday, when they welcome Paraguay to São Paulo. The visitors will be desperate to take advantage of any Brazilian complacency, given their own precarious qualification position. A poor run of form has seen them fall to seventh in CONMEBOL qualification, two points adrift of the fifth-place playoff spot. They need wins, and fast.
Brazil have stuttered and stumbled in recent years as they have attempted to live up to their top billing, but the current squad are a motivated unit under manager Tite.
