Boca Juniors – Estudiantes de La Plata 3:0

Both sides were without arguably their most established players with Boca’s Fernando Gago currently injured, and Alvaro Pereira unavailable for Estudiantes as he is on international duty with Uruguay.

France – Brazil 1:3

Dunga’s Brazil continued their revitalization with their dynamic system in possession being of the most exciting features of Dunga’s side against France. The strikerless 4-2-2-2 shape was important in their defeat of France as it incorporated and utilised the movements of Neymar, Firmino and Oscar to facilitate their possession-focused style.
