[PREDICTIONS] Brazil has clinched, and Portugal is all but assured of advancing in Group G. Chile, Spain and Switzerland could be headed for a three-way tie atop Group H. For a look at Friday's four games and Soccer America's predictions ...

GROUP G:
BRAZIL (6 pts. 6-2) vs. PORTUGAL (4 pts. 7-0)
June 25 in Durban

SWITZERLAND (3 pts. 1-1) vs. HONDURAS (0 pts. 0-3)
June 25
Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. ET. Television: ESPN2/TeleFutura.
Referee: Hector Baldassi (Argentina)
Suspensions: Switzerland -- Behrami.

PREDICTIONS:
Paul Kennedy: Switzerland 1-0
Ridge Mahoney: Tie 1-1

THE LOWDOWN: If Spain and Switzerland win, they'll tie Chile with six points. If that's the case and either game is decided by more than one goal, Spain and Switzerland will advance.

    I hope Chile can pull off a big up-set by beating Spain tomorrow. I would have to say that Chile will win 1-0 over Spain. Chile has beaten Brazil and Argentina in Friendly's this year, so I've heard, and look to be the better team compared to Spain.

    I think Chile will win and help Spain go home early. They are just not the team everyone thought they were.
