Brazil vs Switzerland Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Brazil vs Switzerland predictions and betting tips for the World Cup 2018 Group E fixture on Sunday June 17th at 7pm. Can the South Americans make emends for their disastrous exit from the 2014 World Cup, or will the Swiss serve to frustrate their Brazilian opposition in this opening Group E encounter? 

Brazil 28/1

Brazil have it all to prove after humiliating their own home fans at the 2014 World Cup. The host nation suffered a dramatic 7-1 loss to Germany in the semi-finals of the competition, condemning Brazilian football supporters to a fate far worse than most expected. This time around, the five time World Cup winners simply must prove their worth. Switzerland will likely arrive at World Cup 2018 in their usual pragmatic best. Whilst they have never quite wowed the global footballing audience with slick play or anything close to adventurous tactics, this is a team that usually operate best with the bulk of responsibility thrust upon them.

Brazil vs Switzerland Predictions

Switzerland may prove a tough nut to crack throughout the upcoming summer tournament. They have seemingly entered the 2018 World Cup somewhat under the radar, something which could play into Switzerland’s hands with the mighty Brazil fast approaching on the horizon. Although neither Nico Elvedi nor Johan Djourou seemingly represent some of the best centre-backs on the entire international scene, Switzerland have what it takes to remain nice and tight at the back for the majority of each 90 minutes, especially with Borussia Dortmund’s Roman Burki fit and firing between the sticks.


First Goalscorer Tips

Neymar was obviously unavailable for selection when his nation last exited the World Cup in less than convincing circumstances. Now, the current PSG attacker has little option but to show what he is all about with the rest of the world eagerly watching on. If Neymar really considers himself a superior player to the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, capable of setting the world alight on the grandest footballing stage of all time, then anything less than a stellar opening performance will come as a great disappointment to the 26-year-old Brazilian. Neymar to score first is the first of our Brazil vs Switzerland predictions as he goes in search of the World Cup top goalscorer award.

Correct Score Prediction

Even when Switzerland’s shrewd defensive organisation is swiftly taken into account, the buoyant South Americans seem all but destined to win this particular fixture, they have warmed up for Russia 2018 with two easy friendly victories and with a front-line of Neymar, Jesus and Coutinho they are certainly well covered for goalscoring. A convincing 3-0 victory is the selection for our Brazil vs Switzerland predictions this weekend. They will want to get off to a good start in the group and a comfortable win here looks on the cards for the Samba Boys.

The best odds for Brazil to win 3-0 are 9/1 at Betfair – sign-up here to get up to £100 free.
