The Spain v Tahiti Confederations Cup match at Rio's famous Maracana stadium is set to be overshadowed by a massive protest planned by Brazilians who have been staging demonstrations around the country over a host of grievances.
Police insist they will not allow protesters to disrupt the game but tonight's fixture is expected to see the most volatile clashes yet thanks to increasing mobilisation from organisers using social media.
This is despite Brazil's two biggest cities, Sao Paolo and Rio, revoking an increase in public transport fares which had initially sparked the unrest.
The anti-government protests are continuing in Brazil - but this time they are more localised.
As demonstrations sweep across Brazil, protester Bruno Correia explains what has driven so many Brazilians onto the streets.
