I am quite baffled by the odds offered for this match. It is a friendly match between the best and one of the best teams in the world and we get 2.7 for over 3 goals. The game is played in Seattle where team USA plays their fifth of 10 matches of their Victory tour 2015. Of course the point of the tour is to celebrate the USA’s third Women’s World Cup title with the fans cross country. Just to remember USA demolished Japan by 5:2 in the WC finals.
USA already played 4 post WC matches and it was a feast for the eyes. The opponents were not huge names but after such a huge competition the team continued in impressive fashion. 8:0 and 7:2 against Costa Rica and 5:0 and 8:0 against Haiti is something that has made the fans very happy. Again USA will play two matches against Brazil and the first one is today. It will also be the last match for the veteran Shannon Box while some 4 new players could make a debut.
The team will be competitive though as all the best players have been called and will be given minutes.
Brazil comes with the strong lineup aswell and we can see the likes of Marta, Cristiane, Fabiana, Erika and Formiga. Brazil played the Pan American Games after the World Cup and won the cometition with ease again confirming to be the best South American team. In the finals they beat Colombia 4:0 and during that tournament averaged 4 goals scored. In the last friendly they lost to France by 2:1.
Against USA Brazil has a win and a draw in the last 2 matches but both were played on a tournament in Brazil. They ended 3:2 and 0:0.
The last time USA hosted Brazil was in 2013 and the hosts won by 4:1. USA has an amazing run of 100 matches without a home loss. The score is 88-12-0 and I doubt Brazil can change this for the worse.

I can`t see a reason why we wouldn`t see goals. The matches are for the fans and that is the whole point of this Victory tour.
C` mon sweet Alex, score me a brace.
Pick: the number of goals will be Over 3.5 in the Full Time
