Stadium: Rostov Arena
Brazil are outright favourites to win the World Cup after regaining their confidence and swagger following the mauling by Germany on home soil four years ago.
Switzerland are ranked as high as sixth in the world and were unfortunate not to qualify automatically for Russia 2018 after winning nine of 10 group games.
But the Samba Stars should have no problem seeing off the European side and 21/20 they lead at half-time and full-time kicks off our Brazil vs Switzerland betting tips.
A Look At Brazil’s Betting Odds
Five-time world champions Brazil were ultra-impressive in qualifying for this summer’s tournament, finishing 10 points clear of Uruguay in the South American section.
They have improved dramatically under Tite and the flair and skill of Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino will strike fear into any opposition.
The Selecao have continued to shine in friendlies this year, beating Russia 3-0 in Moscow and Germany 1-0 in Berlin, with Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus netting in that game.
There were some injury fears over Neymar after his club season with PSG was cut short towards the end of February.
However, the 26-year-old has proved his well-being by scoring in two more smooth warm-up wins over Croatia and Austria.
A Look At Switzerland’s Betting Odds
Switzerland may be inside the top 10 of FIFA’s rankings but they are yet to better their quarter-final finish at the 1954 World Cup.
Vladimir Petkovic’s side scraped through a play-off with Northern Ireland to get this far and have talented duo Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri in midfield.
Up front, Benfica striker Haris Seferovic is a reliable marksman, while Arsenal-bound wing-back Stephan Lichtsteiner still loves to get forward at the age of 34.
Friendly results have gone well, with wins over Greece, Panama and Japan, plus a 1-1 draw with Spain.
However, the Red Crusaders only got back into that game against La Roja through a rare David De Gea error and we haven’t forgotten the 2-0 loss to Portugal which cost them top spot in qualifying.
Punters can get 21/4 for the Selecao to prevail 2-0 and that is a good shout for our Brazil vs Switzerland betting predictions.
