Lethal Luis Fabiano can fire Brazil all the way

| 07.06.2010

Brazil may be concluding their World Cup preparations at a later date than most of their rivals, but Monday’s friendly match with Tanzania will provide the five-time winners with a useful final run-out.

The South Americans have been in deadly form recently, and they enter their game against Tanzania on the back of four consecutive wins.

At 1/33, a Brazil win seems to be the irresistible outcome for this fixture, with a Tanzania win highly unlikely at 25/1.

Brazil have yet to concede a goal in 2010, and such a solid foundation is one of the primary reasons for the former champions’ attractive odds of 9/2 to reclaim the Jules Rimet trophy.

For all their defensive qualities, however, it is in attack where Dunga’s men will truly terrify their opponents, and Luis Fabiano will be the chief tormentor.

Fabiano has 25 goals in 36 international appearances, and such pedigree is a reason for his convincing price of 12/1 to win the Golden Shoe.

The Sevilla striker scored 15 La Liga goals this season, with five of those coming in his last four games for the club.

And should he continue such fine form in South Africa, he will be well worth backing at 7/4 to be Brazil’s top scorer at the World Cup.

Disagree? Fernando Torres is 12/1 to win the Golden Shoe. See the full Top Goalscorer market.
