Brazil will win

Serbia – Brazil Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 04:00

They have three points from two games and anything other than a victory against the five-time champions will send them home. Serbia netted after just four minutes against Switzerland but stuggled to contain Vladimir Petkovics side in the second half. Theyve scored in both matches but their ageing back-line could cause them problems here. This is a must-win situation for Serbia. They are a decent outfit who should give Brazil plenty of problems and Aleksandar Mitrovic will be hungry to add to his goal from the previous Group E contest.

At previous World Cups, they both won one game apiece with two draws though they last met at the finals in 1974. Prior to that, Brazil last lost to Yugoslavia in 1934 winning seven and drawing seven of the 14 matches between then and 2002. Brazil have faced Serbia just once since the break-up of Yugoslavia, winning 1-0 in a friendly in 2014 Fred (the striker, not the midfielder in the current squad) scored the only goal of the game.

Philippe Coutinho has opened the scoring in the last two matches, meanwhile, and could be worth a look at 23/4 with 888sport to score at any time. He is 21/20 with Betway to score at any time. At the other end, Neymar got off the mark against Costa Rica, and the hope will be that he can now kick on and live up to his pre-tournament expectations. Brazil alone are a best price of 4/9 to score first with Ladbrokes and Betway.

Sergej Milinkovi-Savi Serbia have a hugely talented squad but Sergej Milinkovi-Savi is on the verge of making a name for himself. He has been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Real Madrid and is likely to have a huge impact on this tournament. The Lazio midfielder is fantastic with the ball at his feet and comes off the back of a wonderful season at the Stadio Olimpico.

Highlighted Team (Brazil):

But, do Serbia have some saying in this? Surely, they will want to win this match and go to the Round of 16 as the winners of Group E. Theres still danger that they could end up without a spot in the knockout phase. To prevent such a disastrous scenario from happening, they need to avoid losing to Serbia at the Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow on Wednesday evening. Despite considered the number 1 favorite for winning the World Cup, Brazil havent been too impressive so far.

The Brazilians are one point away from booking their place in the last 16, but they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Serbia. Serbia obviously struggle at the back and we do not believe that the likes of Tosic and Milenkovic are capable of preventing pacey Brazil attackers from scoring. Following a 1-0 win over Costa Rica in their opener, Serbia suffered a heart-breaking 2-1 loss to Switzerland in their second group game. Brazil were on the verge of dropping two points in Fridays football match against Costa Rica, but the likes of Coutinho and Neymar eventually scored in the stoppage time to help the South American giants record their first win at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. are likely to have a number of chances to score on the break. The Serbs face a must-win situation against Brazil, meaning that Neymar and Co.

This is actually very important, as theres a chance they will play Germany in the Round of 16. Because of that, its crucial to finish the group stage with their heads held high. Beating Serbia would take them to the knockout stage, but also give their players confidence that they will do well in the remainder of the tournament.

Branislav Ivanovic is still handy in the oppositions penalty area but he doesnt have the pace to compete with the Brazilian full backs and he could have his hands full. Brazilian fans will be keen for their side to make the breakthrough earlier in this game and they must surely target the flanks. If Tites side score an early goal, they are likely to add to it and it could result in a decent success. A 3-0 win is likely and can be backed at 11.00 with 888sport. Theyll also be keen to improve their goal difference to ensure they finish above Switzerland in Group E.

Serbia were on the brink of joining them but lost 2-1 to Switzerland - having led at half-time - and the odds are now stacked against the Serbians reaching the last-16 stage. Expert Verdict: Brazil left it late to beat Costa Rica, but their 2-0 win - courtesy of two stoppage-time goals - means they now need just one more point to secure their last-16 place. A win will guarantee Brazil top the group, but that could mean a meeting with Germany in the second round.

Nemanja Matic has also developed into a key member of the Serbian national team that have been largely struggling of late. He rejoined Chelsea in 2014 for a fee of 25M and he helped the Blues win the Premier League title in the 2014/2015 season. Matic was in the form of his life in the 2013/2014 Primeira Liga campaign and he helped the Eagles clinch the domestic trophy.
