Samara, Russia: Five-time World Cup winner and FIFA World Cup Group E topper, Brazil will lock horns on Monday with Mexico who have won six out of their 14 matches against the former in the knockout stages of the tournament since 2000.
Mexico last reached the quarter-finals when they hosted the tournament in 1986 and despite featuring at 15 World Cups they have only appeared in the last eight twice, both times as hosts.
