Brazil vs. Switzerland Predictions & Betting Tips

The bookmakers’ favourites to win the World Cup kick off their second game of the competition on Monday and these Brazil vs. Switzerland predictions suggest another win for the Selecao. But the pressure is very much on Brazil, who come up against a Swiss side in solid recent form.

Brazil vs. Switzerland odds

1 – Brazil to win – 8/15

2 – Brazil to keep a clean sheet – 1/1

3 – No goals in the first half – 9/4

4 – Under 2.5 goals scored – 11/10

5 – Both teams not to score – 4/5

Brazil face a well organised Switzerland team on Monday looking to make a statement in the World Cup group stage. With one game gone, the competition is very much underway and there will be no excuses for anything other than three points for the Selecao.

Tite’s side go into the tournament as overall favourites and boast a squad with no shortage of quality. The likes of Neymar, Jesus and Vinicius Jr provide plenty of attacking quality and we back Brazil to secure the win against Switzerland on Monday.

In spite, of their world class front line, it is the defence that could really stand out at the Stadium 947. The experience of Thiago Silva, alongside former PSG teammate Marquinos – and Casemiro just in front – provides a perfect platform for Brazil’s attacking play. That’s why we back a clean sheet for Brazil on Monday.

This result is all the more likely given Murat Yakin will likely set his team out to defend from the start. A highly competent back line and a combative midfield are likely to frustrate Brazil and we could well see the two teams mostly cancel each other out. A wager on no goals scored in the first half may well pay off, likewise a bet on under 2.5 goals scored overall could well be a winner.

This having been said, the Selecao have far more attacking threat than just their starting eleven. There has been a suggestion that the likes of Vinicius Jr, Raphinha and Rodrygo are all likely to start on the bench on Monday, with all of those players more than capable of changing the game.

Brazil team news

While Brazil’s team may virtually pick itself in defence, there are a number of questions for Tite to answer up front. Gabriel Jesus appears to have forced himself into the manager’s thinking, while injuries to Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo could open up opportunities for the likes of Antony, Richarlison and Raphinha.

Yann Sommer’s recent return from injury could well see the goalkeeper’s position under threat, although the 33 year old is expected to start. Otherwise it is likely to be a mostly predictable starting XI from Murat Yakin on Monday.
