2018 World Cup – Moscow with a Brazilian accent?
Unhappy semi-finalists of the last World Cup, the Brazilians will arrive on Russian territory bearing once again the label of firm favourites for the crowning ceremony, alongside Germany, Spain and France. After a totally exceptional qualifying campaign, Tite’s men have regained a certain degree of stability and should not have any difficulty in showing their best between June and July. Led by Neymar, among others, the Brazilian team will firstly play their qualifying matches against Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland, in a Pool E largely within their reach. One only has to look at the World Cup forecasts to realise that the five-time world champions are expected to be the big winners in their group, or at least to be among the last four remaining in the competition. And no wonder when you know the quality of the team.
2018 World Cup – Schedule for Brazil
- Sunday 17/06, 20h00 (Rostov) – Brazil-Switzerland
- Friday 22/06, 14h00 (St. Petersburg) – Brazil-Costa Rica
- Wednesday 27/06, 20h00 (Moscow) - Serbia-Brazil
What to bet on the World Cup Brazilians?
As we have just mentioned, the quarter-finalists of the 2014 World Cup should easily gain a maximum of points during the preliminary stage. Without insulting Serbia, Costa Rica or Switzerland, the Seleçao seem indeed to be far ahead of the pack, both in their playing and with regard to the level of experience of the group. Although Dani Alves will not be there due to injury, stars such as Casemiro, Fernandinho, Paulinho, Willian, Miranda, Marcelo and Thiago Silva will definitely be present.Coutinho’s team-mates should then have free rein in the round of 16, which will logically be against Mexico, before meeting the big guns. If the logic of the bookmakers is to be respected, this will mean meeting the Belgians of Edan Hazard in the quarter-finals, and then Antoine Griezmann’s French team in the semi-finals. Potentially, there could even be a final against Spain or Germany depending on the performance of each. If a sports bet were to be favoured, it would doubtless be the odds of 1/1 for Brazil to have a place in the semi-finals. At this price, our specialists are not hesitating to make a bet. It’s up to you.

Did you know?
Unlike many nations such as Germany, France or Spain, in Russia this summer, Brazil will have to rely on goalkeepers that have never played a world cup before. As well as Cassio (Corinthians), who serves as third gatekeeper in the hierarchy, these are Ederson (Manchester City) and Alisson Becker (Rome), both of whom should be taking part in the trip to Moscow. Two goalkeepers with no World Cup experience, but who have no reason to envy any other goalkeepers playing in the Cup. Whether it is the Mancunian or the Roman, both are among the best in their positions in 2018. To be continued.
