BRAZIL VS SWITZERLAND
KICK OFF: 17th June 2018 | 19: 00 CET
GROUP E ROUND 1 | ROSTOV ARENA
Brazil to Emerge Victorious Despite Facing a Solid Switzerland Defence
The Selecao are firm favourites to win the World Cup in Russia. They start their campaign against Switzerland before taking on Costa Rica and then Serbia. Both teams come into this game having lost none of their previous five matches.
Brazil boasts a formidable arsenal that is determined to undo their terrible memories of 2014 with a 6th title in their World Cup history. Head coach Tite’s biggest headache is team selection but no matter who starts against Switzerland, they are likely to collect three points.
Switzerland are an underrated team. They have consistently maintained top 10 positions in FIFA ranking owing to their excellent defensive foundation. Against Brazil, we can expect the Swiss to stay crowded at the back while waiting to counter-attack whenever the opportunity arises. However, with Neymar and Coutinho starting for Brazil, these two will surely find a way to the back of the net.
