Brazil vs Serbia World Cup 2022 Prediction

Brazil and Serbia prepare to face each other for the first time since 2018 when the two teams met each other at the World Cup in Russia. This will be a preview of the first Group G encounter between Brazil and Serbia. The match will take place on Thursday night, November 24.

Brazil to get a win in both halves

Brazil have been able to get two wins without an answer from Serbia whenever they have gone up against this opponent. Even in the last World Cup meeting, Brazil were able to pick up a victory in both halves. The five-time champions come into the game with a lot of expectations, but they have a squad that is immensely rich in depth and talent. Serbia’s game plan may largely revolve around stopping Brazil from playing their natural game, but they are unlikely to do so for long.

Brazil 2-0 win

Serbia have not scored a goal against Brazil in both games against the Selecao. The embarrassment of riches for Brazil manager Tite is unlikely to take the attention away from the solid backline and strong defensive performances put up by Brazil right from the qualification stages. Brazil should get a comfortable victory in their opening fixture.

Past Meetings:

The two teams were once again pitted against each other in group stages and they were even joined by Switzerland then as they are now. In any case, the Brazilians had no trouble dispatching of Serbia then, winning the game in a comfortable fashion, although not that convincingly since the game finished 2-0 to Brazil.

Brazil vs Serbia: Can Brazil Open with a Win in a Group G?

Brazil

Brazil start the World Cup as the strong favourite ahead of France and Argentina to win the title. The five-time champions have not won the competition since 2002 but they have reached beyond the quarter-finals in three out of the last four editions. Once again, Brazil come into the World Cup with a star-studded squad that is capable of beating any opponent on their day. Brazil, as always, have immense pressure on their shoulders to win the World Cup both from football fans and pundits around the world be even more so back home where football is the most important thing. Neymar believes that this will likely be his last World Cup but at the age of 30, there is still time for the PSG star to make it to the 2026 World Cup.

The Brazilian team has not injury concerns ahead of this match, so we can expect to see the best they have to offer.

Brazil Predicted Lineup:

Alisson – Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro – Casemiro, Paqueta; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius Jr – Richarlison

Serbia

Serbia look to get past the group stages for the first time since 1998 when the team reached the round of 16. Since then, Serbia have consistently been unable to get past the group stages. The task does not get any easier for the 2022 edition in Qatar, as the team open up the competition with a game against five-time champions, Brazil. Serbia are the big underdog coming into the game, but Dragan Stojkovic will be looking to use that status to his team's advantage. Serbia will be looking to the likes of Mitrovic and Vladhovic up-front and Milinkovic-Savic in midfield to provide a spark for the team, whose weakest position if their defence.

Stojkovic will have to decide what to do with Aleksandar Mitrovic in this game since he is a fitness concern, so he will likely not start the game. There are also some reports that Kostic is questionable too, but it's still not confirmed.

Serbia Predicted Lineup:

V. Milinkovic-Savic – Milenkovic, S. Mitrovic, Pavlovic – Zivkovic, Gudelj, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic – Tadic – Vlahovic, Jovic
