Brazil face Spain in the Confederations Cup Final, after the Spaniards were fortunate to come through on penalties after a gruelling encounter with Italy.

The finals should be one that confirms once and for all who is the best in the world. Brazil have not lost a home game since 1975, and Spain will do well to not only show their dominance of world football and win the Confederations Cup for the first time as well! Online betting operator, Paddypower can choose between the two and with a £50 Free Bet it might be the best time to register and use the bonus cash.

Brazil have the talented Neymar to keep Spain on their toes, the young man has been the driving force of most of Brazil’s moments of ingenuity and is always a threat. The ‘samba boys’ have scored 22 goals in their last eight games and are ideally suited to test Spain’s resilient defense with Casillas keeping a clean sheet in the last eight games in International tournaments. But that does not say it will be a one way affair with Spain defending all through the game.

We all know how devastating Spain is on the counter attack and indeed they tenacity in pressuring their opponents into submission. The heat will be an important factor, as we all saw against Italy, it does affect the Spanish game, and all footballing fans will be hoping that they would have regained their strength to put on a good show on Sunday.

For neutrals looking at arguably the best two teams in the world play, it should make for a breathtaking encounter. For me, I am going for Brazil, even though on paper Spain is the best in the world. The factor that I believe will be the difference between the two great teams is that Brazil will have phenomenal home advantage. I have never witnessed such zeal and fanatical support for a team that never dies and is constantly there all through the game. In addition, if one factors in the heat and the amount of games Spain have had to play in such a short space of time, and the fact that Brazil have not lost a home game for more than 35 years, it looks like there can be only one winner on the day.
