The 2018 FIFA World Cup has been marred by controversies.
But the best chances for a victorious team in Brazil have been placed in a host nation’s home stadiums.
The winner of this year’s tournament could easily be a shocker.
The hosts will host the opening game on Wednesday against Argentina, followed by the second game in Salvador, the third game in Sao Paulo and the final match in Manaus.
Brazil has a strong advantage in its home stadium, as the country hosts the biggest sporting event of the year.
This week’s game will be played at Estadio Nacional, the venue where Brazil defeated host Argentina in a penalty shootout in the 2016 World Cup final.
The winner of that game could be the best-of-seven semifinal, which would take place on the same night as the opening match.
That would mean a tiebreaker would have to be played between the two teams, with the winner taking home the trophy.
Despite the Brazil team having been in the semifinals of the tournament before, they’ve yet to qualify for the final.
That could change with a win on Wednesday, and a victory on Sunday would send the Brazilians into the final against Chile.
This would make the two sides the first two teams to win a World Cup, since both hosts were victorious in the first round in 1930.
The winners of these two games would then face each other in the semi-finals, with a winner from the first match to win the tournament and a loser from the second match to lose it.
The best-case scenario for the hosts would be a draw in the semifinal.
Brazil would then need to beat Chile in the final to win its spot in the tournament.
That’s unlikely to happen, however, with Chile winning its group, which includes Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and Panama.
Brazil and Chile would then play each other, which will have the highest likelihood of happening given the number of games on the schedule.
The host nation will have to decide who it wants to host the final, with only one team from each group guaranteed a spot in a knockout stage.
The first round would be played on Sunday, and the second round would take care of Chile in a three-way tie.
If Brazil beats Chile in their second game, it would clinch the host spot for the knockout stage, while Chile and Argentina would play eachother in the quarterfinals.
If Chile beats Argentina in the semis, they would have a better shot of getting into the knockout stages.
The semi-final and final are the two most important games for a host.
The semi-finale of the match will determine who gets to host Brazil.
That game will also determine who will get to host Argentina, which could also happen with a draw.
The quarterfinal and the finals will decide who gets a berth in the knockout round, and then the final would decide the host nation.
The semifinal will be the most important match in terms of ratings, but it’s a different story for the semifinals and final.
The semifinal is a showcase of the hosts team and is often the first game that viewers watch, with many watching on TV to see who the host team is going to face.
The semifinals and final will likely be the final games for the host country, but the ratings for both will likely fluctuate based on how much the host has done.
The hosts would need to win their two matches in the second and third rounds to clinch a berth.
They’d need to do so by defeating Chile in Santiago on Sunday and winning a penalty shoot-out in Salvador on Sunday.
The hosts would also need to defeat Uruguay in San Salvador on Saturday to secure the berth.
The quarterfinal would also decide who would face whom in the finals.
Brazil has won two of the last three World Cups, including the 2014 World Cup.
In 2018, the hosts were the favorites, but Brazil was beaten by Argentina in their final, and Argentina won a penalty against Uruguay in the third round.
