In Round 1, Brazil showed why they’re the no.1 favorite to win the 2022 World Cup. They beat Serbia 2-0 last Thursday. A Seleção completely dominated that game, so it’s really surprising that they didn’t score more.

Team News and Game Preview
It took more than an hour for Brazil to find the net against Serbia. That’s when Tottenham’s striker Richarlison found the net for the first time that afternoon. Just eleven minutes after the game opener, Rich bagged an incredible brace, setting the score to 2-0.
What’s interesting is that Richarlison’s vintage goal was the last goal of the game. This is surprising because Brazil created many more chances. In fact, they had 24 goal attempts, with 10 shots on goal.
Serbia’s goalie Vanja Milinkovic-Savic and their best center-back Nikola Milenkovic had a good game, but the real reason why Brazil didn’t score more is that their forwards – excluding Richarlison – just weren’t clinical. This is something that should worry them ahead of the game with Switzerland who are famously very good at the back.
The fact that the Swiss have conceded more than two goals in a competitive game only once since the Euros shows how good they are defensively.

Four years ago in Russia, Brazil vs Switzerland finished 1-1. It was a great result for the Swiss whose hard work paid off. They were relentless in the center of the pitch committing dozens of fouls far away from their 16-yard box. As a result, three of their players received a yellow card.
We think they’re going to use the same tactic this time. They’re going to bully Brazil’s playmakers, especially Neymar (if he recovers from an ankle injury) who got a lot of beating from Serbia’s defenders as well last week.

World Cup Predictions: Brazil vs Switzerland
Tite’s team is favored for a reason, but we think they’re going to struggle to score against Switzerland. The Swiss are great defensively and they’re going to prove it on Monday. Still, we do have faith in Brazil, so a modest 1-0 or 2-0 win seems like the most probable outcome.
