Sao Paulo - Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has projected that Argentina will be the most likely opponent if the hosts can make it all the way to the World Cup final.

Scolari says he and his staff analysed the tournament's bracket and predicted the two South American powers will meet in the July 13 final.

While Argentina is one of the chief threats to Brazil winning the tournament, Scolari wants them to do well, as a final between them would match “great players” and two teams with “a lot of quality” against each other.

The rivals cannot meet at the World Cup until at least until the semifinals. If both teams finish first in their groups, they can only face each other in the final at the Maracana Stadium.
