Serbia opened their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Costa Rica and they then led 1-0 against Switzerland before conceding twice to lose the match, that result leaves them with no choice but to chase a win against Brazil.

Brazil have not been at their best in this tournament, drawing 1-1 with Switzerland in their opener and then requiring two injury time goals to beat Costa Rica 2-0 in their second match.  They do top the group though and a draw would be good enough to see them progress.

These sides met in a friendly International in 2014 with Brazil winning 1-0.



Serbia 23/4

Draw 32/10

Brazil 5/10


Suggested bet:  Handicap, Serbia (+1) at 31/20.

Brazil certainly showed plenty of big match temperament in their last game scoring both their goals in injury time against Costa Rica.  I haven’t been impressed with them though and I think that Serbia are more than capable of getting a draw out of this game or perhaps even a shock win which would send Brazil home early.
