Are we the clear-cut favorite to win the World Cup in Germany?

As far as i know "YES" but is there any teams out there that can give us trouble? Like Argentina, Holland, Italy, Portugal and etc..

Yes, almost any other team that makes it can. All you need to do is consider recent matches in the Confed Cup to know that "on any given day..."

That said, I hope if Brazil do go all the way, this time at least they face teams that are traditionally able to counter-match-or beat them, so that they can actually say they faced the best teams, not jobber ones.

Belgium wasn't exactly what I thought was easy for Brazil, specially since one legitimate goal was called back against the Belgians. Turkey gave Brazil a pretty good run, no? And Germany was attacking relentlessly for the first half (a weak German side too) forcing Brazil to counter attack. Kahn ***ked up, and el "fenomeno" pounced on it.

That if Brazil make it to the final again this time, I'm hoping they play some quality opposition (actual strong teams) along the way, that's all?

I want to see Brazil face at least one of, or if not more of:

Argentina,

Holland,

Italy,

England,

Portugal

in this cup...teams that can match them.

Yet you cannot blame Brasi, if these teams cannot make it past group stage...

Brazil is the best team in the world. Argentina is the 2nd, but I am counting that it will be an european team to win the WC. I´d like in the final Portugal played either Holland or the Czech Republic (I think we deserve to be the 8 th nation to win the WC).

So I think the only teams with real chance of defeating Brazil are:

Argentina

Czech Republic

Portugal

Holland

Germany (just because they are playing home)

Italy

in no particular order.

These 7 teams are the only with real chances of winning the WC. Spain, England and France are hyped, and making poor wc qualification campaigns.
