However, Barca attacker says that the Selecao are still capable of causing an upset.
Brazil superstar Neymar has admitted that Spain are the favourites to win the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup final against the Samba Boys in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday night, reports the Mail on Sunday.
However, the new FC Barcelona playmaker has also stated that his country have the players to cause an upset in the famous Maracana stadium against the world and European champions and claim a record-breaking third straight Confederations Cup title, and a fourth crown overall.
“They (Spain) are the best side in the world and are favourites,” Neymar said ahead of the much-anticipated showdown.
“We must play football and not fear them. We are playing the best team of the world nowadays, but we also have great players in the Brazilian national team.”
La Roja were taken all the way in their semi-final clash with Italy on Thursday night, eventually overcoming the Azzurri 7-6 on spot kicks after the match had ended in a goalless stalemate following 120 minutes of end-to-end action.
Meanwhile, the Luiz Felipe Scolari’s men saw off the challenge of arch-rivals Uruguay 2-1 on Wednesday thanks to a late strike from prospective Tottenham Hotspur signing Paulinho and the extra rest that the Selecao have had may ultimately prove decisive come Sunday night in Rio.
