In the International break, Brazil and Senegal will go head-to-head at the Singapore National Stadium on October 10, 2019. Liverpool's famous duo Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino will be representing their respective national sides. Brazil's unbeaten run of 17 matches came to an end when they were on the losing side against Peru in September. Meanwhile, Senegal are still recovering from their Africa Cup of Nations final heartbreak. Richarlison, Cheikhou Kouyate and Ismaila Sarr are other Premier League names in addition to Mane and Firmino.

Alisson Becker is still unavailable after facing an early injury this season. Uncapped player Botafogo has replaced Danilo, who is out because of an ankle injury. Renan Lodi, Matheus Henrique, Gabriel Barbosa and Rodrigo Caio have all made the cut in the Brazilian squad. Ederson looks like a perfect replacement to Alisson Becker. Neymar, Casemiro and Coutinho will be Brazil’s key players in the clash.
Kalidou Koulibaly is back with the team after missing the Africa Cup of Nations final. But Henri Saivet, Edouard Mendy and M’Baye Niang are not in the squad. Alfred Gomis along with Saliou Ciss and Lamine Gassama will have to be at their best to get a hold of the dangerous Brazil attack. Idrissa Gueye, Badou Ndiaye and Cheikhou Kouyate could be seen in Senegal’s midfield. Sadio Mane will lead the line for the Lions of Teranga against Brazil.
