Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Brazil could line up for their FIFA World Cup qualifying clash with Paraguay on Wednesday.

Brazil will be able to recall Aston Villa lynchpin Douglas Luiz back to the fold for their FIFA World Cup qualifying clash with Paraguay on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old picked up two yellow cards in two matches during previous qualification rounds and had to take his place on the naughty step for Saturday's battle with Ecuador, but he could challenge Fred for a spot in midfield following his return.

Brazil manager Tite has no fresh injury concerns to report from the weekend's victory, but experienced defensive duo Thiago Silva and Dani Alves have been forced to cede their places in the squad to Felipe and Emerson.

A familiar setup from the win over Ecuador should see Alisson Becker continue in goal as Ederson remains on the bench, while the back four of Danilo, Eder Militao, Marquinhos and Alex Sandro ought to remain untouched.

Donning the captain's armband in the absence of Thiago Silva, Casemiro is expected to keep his place over Fabinho, while Lyon's Lucas Paqueta should also feature in a more advanced midfield role.

Neymar and Richarlison both made the net ripple at the weekend and should continue to feature in the wide areas, but with Gabriel Barbosa struggling to make an impact against Ecuador, Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus are waiting for the chance to shine.

Brazil possible starting lineup: Alisson; Danilo, Militao, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Luiz, Paqueta; Richarlison, Firmino, Neymar
