England v Brazil Betting Preview – International Friendly 14th November

England’s second string gave a good account of themselves on Friday as they played out a 0-0 draw at home against World Champions Germany. It was a good opportunity for England boss Gareth Southgate, to have a look at alternative options with so many of this regular starters missing. They will get a more severe test in this one against the South Americans who won a place at the World Cup at a canter and are looking a real force to be reckoned with. The visitors are favourites to pick up a win at Wembley.

England v Brazil Betting Tips

England’s second string earned themselves a lot of credit for the way that they performed at Wembley against World Champions Germany on Friday. There were positives to take away from the 0-0 draw like Ruben Loftus-Cheek adding a bit of creativity to the midfield. However, they were spared by some slack German finishing and some heroics by keeper Jordan Pickford at the end of the day. They are going to face a tougher game against a full strength Brazilian side and it is worth a flutter on both teams to score at 8/11 with bet365 simply because that has happened in four of the last five meetings between the two of them. England failed to impress through their World Cup qualification campaign and this is a great time for Gareth Southgate to assess changes now that qualification to Russia 2018 is secured.

The last time England and Brazil met was back in 2013 when they faced each other twice. England took a 2-1 home win over the Brazilians thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard, while they played out a 2-2 draw away against them. England have lost just one of their last four games against Brazil in a W1 D2 L1 record. That 2013 victory for England over Brazil though was the first time that they had beaten them since back in 1984. Because both teams have scored on a regular basis in recent fixtures between the two, over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a promising punt at 4/5. Jamie Vardy is England’s shortest priced option in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market at 12/5. England are W8 D3 L2 in their last thirteen games following that embarrassing Euro 2016 loss against Iceland. The two defeats in that sequence were friendly international losses against Germany and France.

Brazil are a team in form and they eased to a 3-1 victory over Japan on the weekend .that leaves Brazil with a massively positive W13 D2 L1 record in their last sixteen games. They are going to take some stopping. They have an enviable front duo of Gabriel Jesus and Neymar which is enough to strike terror into anyone’s defence. They are joint even money favourites in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market for the game. Brazil have fired off at least three goals in five of their last seven matches now (competitive and friendly) as well as having picked up a total of three clean sheets in their last four games. Brazil are a quote of 11/5 to win to nil at Wembley. Brazil stormed their way to Russia 2018, winning the CONMEBOL zone by ten points over Uruguay with a brilliant W12 D5 L1 record.

England v Brazil Predictions

Brazil to win: England were let off the hook at the back by an understrength Germany so they may not handle Gabriel Jesus and Neymar too well. The Brazilians are in fine form at the moment and the Three Lions may have a real struggle keeping pace with them.
