As has been the case at World Cups in the past and remains true in Qatar 2022, Brazil are hailed as the stars of the show and, once again, are the favourites with the bookies to win the tournament.
In their way is Serbia, who has bounced back incredibly since bowing out of Euro 2020 during the qualifying stages. So, contrary to initial beliefs, Brazil vs Serbia might not be a walk in the park after all.

Brazil have world-class talents in every position and on the bench
Seleção Canarinho will be led to the Qatar World Cup 2022 once again by Tite, who took over in June 2016 after a couple of disastrous Copa América outings. Forging almost all of his line-ups on a solid back four, over the years, the pieces have fallen into place to allow Brazil to be as strong defensively as they are known to be going forward.
In the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, Brazil dominated the CONMEBOL standings with an undefeated campaign, scoring 40 goals, conceding five, and only drawing twice. That said, they need to rumble with Argentina on the 21st of September to finish their matches after it was postponed. Regardless of the result, Brazil has their Qatar 2022 dates, looking to win the tournament for the sixth time.
Tite’s team looks to be very similar to the one that took Brazil to the final of the 2021 Copa América. Neymar, Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Fabinho, Alisson, and Casemiro forge the core of the team, while Vinícius Júnior, Bruno Guimarães, Lucas Paquetá, Éder Militão, and Rodrygo bring bundles of youthful pep to the side.
Serbia’s been restored as a strong European side
Having harnessed the power of a potential golden generation, Dragan Stojković has quickly put Serbia back on the football map. Before he joined in March 2021, Serbia failed to qualify for Euro 2020, losing to Scotland in the Path C playoffs final. Since then, his pass-heavy, attacking style has given a very talented Serbia side a license to thrill.
Under the coach affectionately known as ‘Pixie,’ Serbia took their 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualification group by the horns, beating Ireland, drawing with Portugal, and beating Azerbaijan in his first three games. Continuing undefeated to the last game, The Eagles defeated Portugal to secure the top spot of Group A. This will be the solo nation’s third World Cup, with the bar currently set at one win and two losses.
Serbia’s main question mark concerns their goalkeeping, but their collection of superbly talented outfielders often makes up for this – and then some. Dušan Vlahović, Sergej Milinković-Savić, Aleksandar Mitrović, Luka Jović, Nikola Milenković, Filip Kostić, and Strahinja Pavlović are certainly names to become familiar with.
Betting tips and odds on Brazil vs Serbia in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group G
It won’t come as a surprise that Brazil are the healthy favourites in the odds at 9/20 to win the game, while Serbia sit as the firm underdogs at 13/2. Such is the strength of Tite’s squad that Brazil is only at 26/9 to win with a -2 handicap.
Of course, as the 44/9 favourites to win the Qatar World Cup 2022 outright, facing a Pot 3 team in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group G isn’t expected to pose much of a problem. At 11/2 to bow out in the group, it’s almost unfathomable that Brazil won’t progress according to the oddsmakers.
Brazil vs Serbia will be shown on the BBC in the UK at 7 pm on the 24th of November.
