Brazil v Switzerland Betting Tips & Predictions

Brazil are 10/21 favourites for their World Cup Group H encounter with Switzerland on Monday afternoon.

Including a draw at the 2018 World Cup, Brazil have won just two of their last six matches against Switzerland. 

The Swiss were impressive in their 1-0 win over Cameroon on Thursday. The win eases some of the pressure for Murat Yakin’s side as they face a Brazil team which outplayed Serbia for a 2-0 victory in game one.

Neymar is a doubt for Brazil after going off with an ankle injury against the Eagles. Yakin is expected to name an unchanged side for this match.

Both Teams To Score: Yes 

11/10 (Unibet)

It is a foregone conclusion that Brazil will get on the scoresheet, so we are really looking at whether Switzerland can find the net. 

The Rossocrociati have failed to score three times since September 2021, but there were some good signs from their attack against Cameroon. 

Breel Embolo was a threat throughout. Yakin’s team were comfortable in possession and moved the ball well. Xherdan Shaqiri is past his best, yet he is still capable of creating a goal out of nothing. 

With Brazil committing players forward, the Swiss will create chances. 

Anytime Goalscorer: Richarlison

13/8 (Unibet)

Entering the tournament off a slow start to his Tottenham career, Richarlison’s selection as Brazil’s number nine raised some eyebrows. 

The former Everton forward netted both goals in the win over Serbia, however, and was a threat throughout. 

Richarlison is a streaky goal scorer, finding the net in three straight at the end of last season and scoring in four matches in a row in 2020-21. 

Perhaps he is hitting a purple patch at the right time. 

Total Brazil Goals: Over 2.5

9/5 (Sporting Index)

Brazil were unlucky to only score twice against Serbia. They hit the woodwork on two occasions and got off 23 shots. Tite named an attack-oriented team with Lucas Paqueta in a midfield pivot, and it will be another barrage of Brazilian attacks on Monday. 

Switzerland aren’t renowned for high-scoring matches, but they conceded four to Portugal earlier this year and allowed three against both Italy and France in the Euros last summer.
