On Thursday, June 7, Brazil will kick off their participation in the 2022 World Cup by taking on Serbia in the opening match of Group G. In addition to the two teams, the other two teams in the group are Cameroon and Switzerland. The Brazilians and the Swiss are considered to be the favorites to advance. However, Tite’s team comes into the competition as one of the favorites to win the entire thing as the South
Brazil: This Brazil team is one that is full of flair and has potential that is virtually limitless. There were so many famous people, but there was only a limited amount of time available. At this point, it is unclear who will get the starting nod at striker between Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus. Jesus has been picking up steam as he has helped lead Arsenal to the top of the Premier League standings. This is obviously a problem that any team would be happy to have. Although Fred can be considered a weak area in comparison to the rest of the team, you should still expect them to have a deep, deep run at the very least. This team does not really have any glaring gaps in their roster.
They have a lot of quality in the middle and up top, but their defense is where the major problems lie. Serbia has a lot of quality. Because Nemanja Vidic will not be entering via that door, players like Stefan Mitrovic and Milos Veljkovic will have to perform at their absolute peak in order to compete with Brazil’s technical prowess and lightning-fast pace. It will be essential for them to keep their attackers in front of them, close in on them in numbers, and look for ways to force them wide.
Vinicius Jr. and Neymar each score, but a late goal from Serbia keep it close as the underdogs fight to keep up with the favorites. Pick: Brazil 2, Serbia 1
