Relevant Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
Brazil come in to this game priced at 2/5 with Coral to take the three points, with Switzerland out at 8/1 with BetVictor. We can see why, although it might be the worst thing for Brazil to struggle early on. After all, losing to Switzerland in their opener didn’t do Spain too much harm back in 2010. On top of that, there is the concern that Brazil are peaking a little too early, as they come to Russia in top form.
A 3-0 win over Austria was Brazil’s final warm-up match, another impressive display from the five time world champions. They have been fantastic since joining up ahead of the World Cup, but sides who start off well tend to have a difficult time maintaining that form through to the final.
Brazil v Switzerland Tips
Brazil come in to this tournament with more options in attack than they had four years ago. They have four potent forwards playing across their 4-3-3, with Casemiro holding it all together. However, the burden is still set to fall on Neymar. He’s been rushed back after missing the second half of the season with PSG, and he slots straight in to the Brazil line-up. They wouldn’t quite miss him as much as they did four years ago, but he’s still far too talented for them to ignore.
At 26 years of age, he’s already hit 55 international goals. The latest of those came is his last two appearances, as he scored in wins over Croatia and Austria this month. He hit four goals in four matches at the last World Cup, and we expect the forward to revel in the attention this time too. Neymar to score any time at 5/6 with Betfair is our main tip, while we’re backing his side to claim a 2-0 victory here at 5/1 with Ladbrokes.
