Serbia v Brazil- World Cup 2018

Serbia v Brazil Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 27th June – 7.00 p.m

There has to be better from Brazil coming at this tournament because they have strangely been underperforming so far. It has been a struggle for them in their games against Switzerland and Costa Rica and they will get a stiff challenge from Serbia as well. While there are many connotations as to how this group could end up, realistically the way that Serbia make it through to the next round of the competition is going to be winning this fixture. However our Serbia v Brazil predictions favour the South Americans.

Serbia News and Form

Serbia were looking at a good position having beaten Costa Rica in their opening group, and then finding themselves 1-0 up against Switzerland at half-time. Not too long after the half-time break, the Swiss got their equaliser but it was still Serbia who looked the better of the two sides and were the ones who were really pushing on for the victory. But they were caught out badly on the break in stoppage time to suffer a 2-1 defeat which was a bit harsh on them. So now they really have to go on the hunt for a win over the Samba Boys to get through to the knockout phase of Russia 2018. The draw could get them there but only if Switzerland lose by more than one goal against Costa Rica, and Serbia can not rely on that happening. Four of Serbia’s last six games have
ended with less than two goals and you are looking at under 2.5 goals for 4/5 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.) which will is one of our leading Serbia v Brazil predictions.

Serbia have played very well it has to be said at the 2018 World Cup with a good blend of experience and young talent in their squad. Do they have enough about them to pull off an incredible World Cup shock by winning this game? If they did that it could mean curtains for Brazil in the tournament. Aleksandar Mitrovic who is their shortest priced option in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.). This was always going to be a tough finish to the group for them and they probably knew that they had to get maximum points from their opening two games instead of having to rely on getting something out of this game against Brazil.

Brazil News and Form

The Brazilians have not looked very good, just like most of the big guns at this tournament. They were in great form heading to the World Cup but they just haven’t found their rhythm. It’s been a bit strangely muted from Brazil so far and they are so much better than what they have produced. They opened their account with a 1-1 draw against Switzerland and while they had justifiable complaints about Switzerland equalising goal, Brazil didn’t do enough going forward to get themselves comfortable in the game. Then they had really tough time in breaking down Costa Rica in their second match, winning 2-0 but with both goals coming in stoppage time just as it looked like Costa Rica had done enough to pull off what would have been an incredible point for them. So if Serbia need a bit of hope then they can just look at the lack of quality performances from Brazil so far.

Still, this Brazil and they haven’t lost even though they have not been playing well and they are on a good undefeated streak of current form. The Selecao have Neymar and Gabriel Jesus as the joint 3/1 odds first goalscorer favourites for this game* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.). They have some world-class goalscoring options in their ranks and Brazil have scored at least two goals in three of their last four games. In the bet365 correct score market you have a quote of 6/1 on Brazil 2-0 result* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.) which makes for a very strong Serbia v Brazil prediction. What makes this really super interesting is if Brazil does win this group by collecting a win in this game, there is a pretty strong chance that they will be playing Germany in the round of 16.

Serbia and Brazil have met just once before with that game ending in a 1-0 victory for the Selecao. That was just a 2014 international friendly.

Serbia v Brazil Predictions

We can not see Serbia doing enough in this game to collect the win even though they have played well and Brazil haven’t. Serbia’s hopes were crushed late on against Switzerland and that has to have taken something out of them. Even though Brazil have looked below their best, we still see Brazil winning it.
