    Brazil could struggle without Neymar's sparkle, back Germany to win at best odds 9/5 with Coral.

    Tournament hosts and 5 time World Cup winners Brazil haven't quite captured the imagination of football fans around the globe despite making it to the last four and it's no surprise that with Neymar out injured, support for Selecao has all but dried up. The final scoreline of 3-1 against Croatia in their opening match helped to paper over a few cracks after a largely unconvincing performance and it could have quite easily been a different outcome if Neymar had been sent off for swinging a forearm at Luka Modric. Instead the Barcelona forward finished the game with a brace, including converting from 12 yards after a dubious penalty decision. Brazil then couldn't find a way past Mexico in their second match and didn't have to pull up any trees to beat Cameroon who were already on their way home. Selecao were let off the hook when surviving a penalty shootout with Chile in the last 16 and managed to scrap their way into the last four with a 2-1 win over Colombia. Thiago Silva got the ball rolling in that game before David Luiz struck a fabulous free kick, but Brazil's squad will be further depleted as their skipper will miss the clash with Germany through suspension. Having only kept one clean sheet in the tournament so far and with no Neymar to drive them forward, Brazil will need to dig deep to get the right result in Belo Horizonte.

    Germany's results may not read too kindly either, but the manner in which they have controlled their opponents so far bodes well for their chances in this match. They made light work of beating Portugal and showed great resilience to come from a goal down to draw with Ghana before Thomas Müller provided the killer blow to USA in their final group match. Yes Müller has been key to Germany's success at these finals, but they do not entirely depend on him as Brazil do on Neymar and they look stronger in more departments than the tournament hosts. The last 16 clash against Algeria was the only match in which Germany failed to score in 90 minutes and they were ahead within moments of the restart, meaning they have found the net in each match so far. They then took an early lead against France in the quarter final and were able to keep Les Bleus at arms length for the remainder of the game, so could be about to spoil the party for the Samba Nation.

    Luiz Filipe Scolari is expected to deploy Dante alongside David Luiz at centre-back in light of Thiago Silva's suspension, while Luiz Gustavo returns from his ban and should take Paulinho's place in midfield. Dani Alves is also in line for a return to the back four having dropped to the bench in favour of Maicon against Colombia. Willian should come in for Neymar on the left and will be tasked with providing support to Fred, who has only managed one goal at the tournament so far.

    Joachim Löw will be happy to continue with the same defence which comfortably held France on Friday, meaning Per Mertesacker will be forced to settle for a spot on the bench. Miroslav Klose could also miss out following an underwhelming performance, leaving André Schürrle or Mario Götze to start in the attack alongside Mesut Özil and Thomas Müller.
