FIFA World Cup 2022: Brazil vs Serbia Prediction, Time, Live Streaming Details

Five-time FIFA World Cup winners Brazil begin their 2022 FIFA World Cup journey against a formidable Serbia side on Thursday in a Group G clash at Qatar’s Lusail Stadium. (12:30 AM IST)

One of the top favourites, Brazil, topping the CONMEBOL qualifying standings on their way to the World Cup, have not been as successful in the biggest tournament since 2002 – when they beat Germany 2-0 in the final.

Overview:

After 2002, Brazil was only able to reach the semi-finals once and had to fail from the quarter-finals three times. Interestingly, they were defeated by Belgium four years ago.

On the contrary, Serbia has only been eliminated in the group stage of all three World Cup appearances. That year, they qualified for the World Cup unbeaten in their eight qualifiers.

Head to head:

Brazil – also known as the Selecao – is the only country to have successfully competed in every single World Cup since it was originally issued in 1930. This is her 22nd participation.

The team has been unbeaten in their last 15 group games, winning 12 and topping their pool in every edition since 1982.

In the previous two encounters with Serbia, Brazil have beaten their opponents, including in the group stage at the last World Cup with a 2-0 victory.

The Eagles – nickname for Serbia – not only impressed in UEFA qualifying, they also topped their group after winning six games and drawing two out of eight. But they also lost seven of their nine World Cup games.

Key Characters:

Brazil: Brazil would mostly respond to their star player Neymar to keep the score going. It’s Neymar’s third and possibly last World Cup. He also needs three goals to surpass Pelé as Brazil’s all-time top scorer.

The in-form Paris Saint-Germain striker has been responsible for the Selecao’s 19 goals in the competition since his World Cup debut on home soil in 2014.

Serbia: Successful striker Aleksandar Mitrovic will be the key player for the Eagles. He has scored eight goals in eight games en route to Qatar. He has been in superb form at club level for Fulham this season, scoring nine goals in 12 Premier League games to finish fourth in the Golden Boot race.

Brazil: Alisson, Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex Sandro, Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Raphinha, Neymar, Vincius Jr., Richarlison

Serbia: Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, Strahinja Pavlovic, Nikola Milenkovic, Milos Velijkovic, Andrija Živković, Sergej Milinkovic-Savić, Sasa Lukic, Nemanja Gudelj, Filip Mladenovic, Dusan Tadic, Aleksander Mitrovic
