Latin American football giants Brazil will face Mexico in an international friendly at Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo on Sunday.

Both these football crazy nations will be looking into this fixture as perfect preparations for the 44th edition of the Copa America, which starts on 11 June.

Brazil, under the guidance of Dunga, have been a formidable side as they have not lost a single game in their last six outings, while Mexico's record may not be brilliant after losing two of their last six matches along with a draw.

The Mexicans need to come up with their best game if they are to snatch a win against the confident bunch of Brazilians, who embarrassingly lost to Germany 7-1 in the semi-finals of the World Cup. It was one of the worst nights in Brazilian football, where they were outplayed in all departments of the game.

But Brazil have gradually picked up the pieces and are looking as a tight unit under Dunga, who once again took over the reins of Brazilian football for a second stint.

Dunga restored belief and confidence in his players, which can be seen from the magical display on the field.

In the run up to the friendly, Brazil have defeated nations such as France, Japan, Chile, Turkey etc with impressive score lines.

The Brazilian side may have to be content without the services of the 30-year-old forward Robinho, who is reported to have picked up a knee problem.

Mexico may outline the Gold Cup as their major priority, but they are going to come up with a strong team to pose against the confident and talented Brazilian side on Sunday.

Mexico Coach Miguel Herrera will look to keep the ball with them, but not give too many passes as well.

"I think it'll be very intense, it should be a very good game," ESPN quoted Herrera as saying. "We're going to try to keep the ball, not give away so many passes, be more confident, have more volume in plays [and] be more destabilising [for the opposition] on the field."

Though Brazil may have been victorious against Mexico in the past with 22 wins for Selecao and 10 for El Tri, Mexico have done relatively well against the Brazilians of late. In the last 10 meetings between the two sides, Mexico have not been completely outplayed as they have won four and lost five with one draw.

The draw came in their last outing during the 2014 World Cup, which ended 0-0, but only three players -- Rafa Marquez, Marco Fabian and Raul Jimenez -- remain from the team that played during the time who will feature against Mexico on Sunday.

Brazil will miss players such as Oscar, Marcelo and Luiz Gustavo along with star, Neymar, who recently won the Champions League with Barcelona.

With Brazil being in such ominous form, barring a win, rest of the results will be seen as a disappointment.
