Brazil will be taking on Japan in the opening match of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and it will be a massive game between the sides as this is the first group game and a win in this one will put the winner in prime position to make it through to the semifinals of the Confederations Cup. Japan are coming into this match on the back of a huge 1-1 draw against Australian in the FIFA World Cup asian qualifiers and they became the first team to qualify through the qualifying rounds and joined Brazil in the FIFA World CUp 2014 next season.

Brazil have played couple of big friendly matches first they drew with England 2-2 at home, where paulinho scored a late goal to earn a draw against a very spirited English side, while Brazil ran out 3-0 winners against France on 9th June and now they will be looking build on their recent form and make it to the semifinals. In the Group A we have Brazil, Japan, Mexico and Italy and this is the group of death we can call it, as every match will be a hard fought and any of the four teams can make it to the next round of the competition.
Japan had a couple of great years in International football, they have some solid players who have great experience playing in some big European clubs with the likes of Honda, Shinji Kagwa to a name a few, they Asian Champions, unbeaten in World Cup qualifiers and beat couple of good european sides in their friendly matches this year, they can pose a threat if they can counter Brazil forward line but I can not see them winning against Brazil who will be playing at home infront on sold out stadium and it should be a massive game.
