  • Brazil took a while to break down a stubborn Serbia outfit but did what was needed to secure the win in their opening game of the tournament thanks to a brace from Richarlison.
  • That success made it eight straight wins for the Brazilians and they will be confident of recording another success here but they will have to cope with the loss of both Neymar and Danilo with the pair sidelined with injuries.


  • Switzerland were made to work hard for their win over Cameroon in their first clash of the 2022 FIFA World Cup but they are in a good position to advance and will see this as a free shot against the well-fancied Brazilians.
  • Breel Embolo’s goal was enough to separate the two teams in that opening encounter and having produced a solid display, there is little reason for Murat Yakin to make any changes to his starting XI for this one, bar a potential change of formation.



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Eder Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro; Fred, Casemiro; Raphinha, Lucas Paqueta, Vinicius Junior; Richarlison

UNAVAILABLE: Neymar (Injured), Danilo (Injured)



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Widmer, Akanji, Elvedi, Rodriguez; Freuler, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas; Embolo




  • The two previous World Cup matches between Brazil and Switzerland both finished level: 2-2 in 1950 and 1-1 in 2018 (both group stage)
  • Brazil have remarkably lost only one of their last 28 matches in a group stage at the FIFA World Cup and are currently unbeaten in 16 successive group games (W13 D3) since a 2-1 defeat against Norway at France 1998
  • Against Serbia, Brazil extended their competition records to 74 total victories and 231 goals overall in FIFA World Cup history
  • Brazil have won their opening two matches at a FIFA World Cup final competition on nine previous occasions
  • Brazil have won four of their last five World Cup matches by the same scoreline of 2-0
  • Brazil have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three World Cup group stage matches
  • Brazil have only failed to score in two of their last 34 matches in a group stage at the FIFA World Cup
  • Brazil are unbeaten in their last 16 international matches (W13 D3). They have won each of their last eight international matches
  • Richarlison has scored nine goals in his last seven international matches for Brazil
  • Switzerland have lost only two of their last 13 World Cup group stage matches (W7 D4)
  • Switzerland have won each of their last four competitive international matches (excluding friendly)
  • A victory for Switzerland would see them win two successive matches at the start of a World Cup final competition for the first time
  • Switzerland have won only one of their previous eight World Cup matches against South American opposition (D2 L5)
  • Switzerland have not failed to score in their last seven World Cup group stage matches
  • Xherdan Shaqiri is set to make his 11th World Cup appearance which would be a Swiss record at the finals. He is currently level on 10 appearances with Valon Behrami and Stephan Lichtsteiner
  • Breel Embolo has scored in three of Switzerland’s last four international matches
  • Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka are both in contention to become the first player from Switzerland to score in three FIFA World Cups


Brazil showed some very good signs in their win over Serbia and they will take some beating if they can replicate that form throughout the tournament. They will have to deal with the loss of talisman Neymar for this contest with Switzerland but they boast plenty of depth and should be able to overcome his absence. The Swiss will give this a good go and have caused a few upsets over the past few years but this could well be a step too far for them and it would be a surprise if they were able to take any points from this contest with Brazil set to extend their winning streak to nine games.
