How Has Brazil Performed in Previous World Cups?
Brazil has played in every single edition of the World Cup and they have won the title five times. In 1938, Brazil won their first World Cup medals, finishing in third place. The following World Cup was held in 1950, and Brazil hosted the event. They reached the finals but were beaten by Uruguay 2-1, to finish in second place. Eight years later, in 1958, Brazil won their first World Cup title.
The country had to wait 16 years before a similar golden generation was formed. In 2006 and 2010, Brazil made the quarterfinals but were knocked out by France and the Netherlands. In 2014, Brazil hosted the World Cup for the second time, and they were expected to win the competition. They reached the semi-finals, where they would play Germany, but in one of the biggest upsets in the history of the competition, Brazil were knocked out 7-1. It was an extremely humiliating defeat for the team and they went on to lose the third place playoff game to the Netherlands. In 2018, Brazil reached the quarterfinals once again, but they were knocked out by Belgium.
Brazil’s Qualification Route to the World Cup
Brazil topped the CONMEBOL group to qualify for the World Cup. The team did not lose a single match in their 17 qualification games, winning 14 games and drawing 3. Their final game, which will be played against Argentina, was delayed to the 21st of September, but as both teams finished at the top of the group, many points in front of the third place, the game will not have any impact on either team's qualification.
Brazil really dominated the qualification group, scoring a total of 40 goals across 17 games and only conceding 5. To put that into perspective, it is the equivalent of scoring 2.35 goals per match and only conceding 1 goal every third match.

When the qualifiers started, Brazil was the highest ranking South American team, sitting in 3rd place in the World Rankings. After finished as runners-up in the 2021 Copa America and an impressive qualifiers campaign, they moved up the rankings and currently sit in 1st place.
