Austria vs Brazil: Selecao to edge out in-form hosts

Austria vs Brazil: Selecao to edge out in-form hosts

Kick Off: 1500, 10/06/2018

Stadium: Ernst-Happel Stadion

Austria have claimed a couple of notable scalps in World Cup warm-up matches but may meet their match when facing Brazil in Vienna.

The Selecao have never tasted defeat in nine head-to-head meetings, securing wins in six of those past encounters.

We think the in-form hosts can be competitive, but are going with 11/5 for the visitors to prevail and both teams to score in our Austria vs Brazil betting tips.

A Look At Austria’s Betting Odds

Austria will be absent from Russia 2018 but have put together an excellent run of five straight victories in international friendlies.

That hot streak started with a 2-1 defeat of Uruguay at this venue in November, before emphatic March triumphs over Slovenia and Luxembourg.

World Cup hosts Russia were beaten 1-0 towards the end of last month and Austria then came from behind to edge out defending champions Germany 2-1 in Klagenfurt.

Highly-rated Schalke midfielder Allesandro Schopf has scored in the last couple of wins, so 11/4 he strikes at anytime again here takes the eye from the Austria vs Brazil odds.

A Look At Brazil’s Betting Odds

Brazil established themselves as favourites to land a sixth World Cup triumph when topping the South American qualifying section by 10 points and little has happened since to put punters off.

The Selecao were clinical in a March double-header which brought a 3-0 win over Russia in Moscow and a 1-0 defeat of Germany in Berlin.

Tite’s team maintained the momentum when brushing aside Croatia 2-0 at Anfield recently, with Neymar netting on his return from injury.

Liverpool ace Roberto Firmino also struck on his home patch that day and bagged the winner when Brazil beat Austria 2-1 in their last meeting in November 2014.

Firmino is 7/2 to grab the final goal in this match and that completes our Austria vs Brazil betting predictions.
