The Brazil vs. Switzerland match will be played on Sunday, June 17, at the Rostov Arena, Rostov. This is the first round match of World Cup group E. Apart from Brazil and Switzerland, Serbia and Costa Rica were drawn in this group.

STATS

  • Brazil recorded only one defeat in their last 21 games in all competitions. That loss came in a friendly match against Argentina in June last year. They are in a series of four victories, with 9:0 goal difference.
  • Switzerland recorded only one defeat in their last 17 games in all competitions. That loss came in the final match of World Cup qualifiers against Portugal, which caused them to lose the first place in the group. However, they successfully eliminated Northern Ireland in the playoffs and qualified for the championships.

HEAD TO HEAD

These teams played only eight times against each other so far. Brazil recorded three victories, Switzerland had two wins, while three matches ended in a draw. Interestingly, Switzerland won two out of their last three encounters. Only the first match they played was on World Cup. In 1950, the result was 2:2.

BRAZIL NEWS

Brazil is regarded as the biggest favorite to win the title in Russia. In the last couple of friendly matches they played, Brazil defeated all their opponents in a routine fashion. The biggest star of the team Neymar was very inspired and he humiliated his opponents in almost every match. If he stays in that kind of form on the tournament, he will be the biggest contender for the MVP award.

SWITZERLAND NEWS

Switzerland is the second favorite of the group, but in the match against Brazil they will probably try to lose with the least possible margin. Their most important game should be against Serbia, that might decide which team will finish second in the group.

SUMMING UP!

Brazil shouldn't have many problems to defeat Switzerland. We don't expect that the Swiss will score a goal.
