The exciting squad of Brazil hits the grass of Qatar once again against Switzerland in their next fixture in Group G. An impressive 2-0 win against Serbia has settled some nerves for the Brazilian fans but the aim is not only to get out of the group, it is to win the tournament. Switzerland, who will play against the five-time World Cup winners, managed to see off Cameroon thanks to Embolo’s solitary goal.
Turning our attention to the FIFA rankings, Brazil, who is first, face 15th-place Switzerland, who are aiming to reach the knockout stages of this tournament for the eighth time in their history.
A spectacular double from Richarlison saw off Serbia, who put up a gallant effort in the first half to repel the assault that the Brazilian front line fired at them. In the second half, the tempo was a bit too much for the Serbians and Richarlison pounced first to get the opener before spectacularly scoring the second through a perfect bicycle kick. Neymar had to be subbed off as he suffered an ankle injury after one of the numerous tackles sprained his ankle.
A solid performance from Brazil will settle the nerves of a lot of Brazilian fans as the group is not the easiest, and if the goals did not come in the second half, they would have been in trouble. Now, switching their focus to Switzerland, their last meeting in a World Cup set-up was a 1-1 draw in the opening game in Russia.
Brazil will have more than enough firepower to overhaul the Swiss defence, and LV BET is pricing Brazil to come out 2-0 winners again at 11/2 (6.50) with Vinicious Jr to score anytime during the match at 5/2 (3.50).
A very important result against Cameroon to manage to get the win as the game was edging closer to a 0-0 draw. Embolo crept into the box unmarked and was on point for his team to give them the essential three points. Switzerland managed to hold onto the ball for the majority of the game but failed to get the ball in key area of the pitch where they could hurt Cameroon.
As we have seen in previous games, this tournament has offered us plenty of 0-0 draws and we should not be surprised if this game goes that way as well. If you think that this will be the result we are pricing a 0-0 at 12/1 (13.00).
Another aspect that will surely be tested at the Stadium 974 is that Yann Sommer was not called into action often during the game. The Swiss defence closed down spaces quickly affording little chances for the opposition team to score. We are pricing under 2.5 goals in the match at 6/5 (2.20).
