Favourites Brazil enjoyed their opening Group G match and will now move on to a tough-looking fixture against Switzerland at Stadium 974 on November 28th.
Brazil took a while to find their feet against Serbia, however, when they eventually managed to turn the screw, they looked unstoppable. The Selecao are tournament favourites and justified the hype with a slick second half performance which saw Spurs back-up Richarlison find the net twice. The South American outfit continued to create chances during the second half, although Tite will also be pleased with the clean sheet and his side’s ability to close the game out.
Switzerland put in solid, if unspectacular performance against Cameroon. Murat Yakin’s side rarely looked like getting out of first gear and they were able to capitalise on some hesitant defending from the Indomitable Lions in the second half. The Swiss are a defensively strong unit and they have beaten some decent sides during qualifying and in the Nations, however, this is a significant step up.
Brazil are priced up as the 5/13 favourites with 10Bet. Tite’s men are expected to ease past Switzerland, however, their opponents can be stubborn and some punters may be tempted by the 15/4 on offer for this game to end all-square.
