BRAZIL VS SWITZERLAND PREVIEW & PREDICTION
Group E continues and this time we will talk about the Brazil vs Switzerland forecast. The Brazilian side leaves as a favorite due to the collective and offensive potential it possesses, which it recovered under the command of coach Tité. For this reason and knowing that he knows what he plays despite not being colorful, we believe that he has everything necessary to win the game. Remember that the South Americans are defending very well, having Neymar as the main midfield player forward. Of course, the process can be fought and closed by the Swiss football proposal, which is based on the tactical order between lines and to defend at all costs when necessary.
After the traumatic experience that turned out to be the 2014 World Cup for Brazil, the South American team will seek revenge on Russian territory. Now the team is led by the experienced Tité, who made his acquaintance with Corinthians a few years ago. For this coach, the tactical order and effectiveness prevail over everything, noticing this in the few goals that the “Verdeamarela” yields. That yes, in spite of this change, the quality has not disappeared in the establishment, since it counts on elements of first level like Neymar, Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus.
If we continue with the analysis of the “Canarinha”, we can tell you that it has a quality goalkeeper like Allison, who had a great season in Rome. In defensive matters, the team is supported by what Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Miranda, Filipe Luis and Marcelo do, which also gives the team a lot of football (Dani Alves will be surprised at not being present due to injury). In the midfield, Casemiro and Paulinho will be the axis of balance that Tité seeks, leaving Neymar to distill all his magic. Other elements that could be useful in the party if they arrive are Fernandinho, Firmino and Douglas Costa.
The Europeans will play their fourth consecutive World Cup and will seek to improve what they did in the previous one, one where they fell in the second round against Argentina in overtime. The team struggled for its direct classification with Portugal, recently achieving its place via repechage against Northern Ireland. The main characteristics of this establishment is based on the collective order that all its players have. For this reason, it should not surprise us that he has lost so many in his fence and that most of his matches have extremely tight results. If you want to qualify you will have to take risks against Costa Rica and overcome a rival to fear like Serbia.
The last friendlies of the Swiss team can be classified as acceptable after beating Greece 0-1 and beating Panama 6-0 in March, to then equalize 1-1 against Spain and beat Japan 2-0 in June. In this group should stand the goalkeeper Burki, defenders Lichtsteiner, Elvedi, Djourou and Ricardo Rodriguez, the flyers Behrami, Dzemaili, Xhaka and Gelson Fernandes and the forwards Shaqiri, Seferovic, Embolo and Gavranovic. Apparently, it is expected that the Swiss back their lines from the initial stage, trying not to receive a goal in the first 20 ‘minutes of play. Then they will seek to score through a stopped ball, either with a corner or with a free throw.
The last match that both teams had was almost 5 years ago, when the Swiss defeated the Brazilians 1-0 (August 2013). The goal fell at the beginning of the second half, after having equalized 0-0 the first 45 ‘minutes of play.
