Brazil v Switzerland World Cup 2018 Betting Preview
Brazil are in great form and look like worthy favourites going into their opener with Switzerland. The South Americans have impressed recently having beaten Germany, Croatia, Russia as well as a draw against England. They are in a tricky group that at a glance looks straightforward but on paper the likes of Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia could give them some scares. Once again we have to press how important these opening matches are as teams want to be as comfortable as possible heading into their 2nd and 3rd group matches. Brazil should have little trouble easing past Switzerland but they will be wary of going in guns blazing as Switzerland do have the potential to cause an upset.
Switzerland come into the World Cup having navigated a very tricky qualifying stage. They snuck past Ireland in the playoffs and in all honestly have been playing well below the level they are capable of. They recently managed a 0-0 draw with Spain and convincingly beat minnows Greece and Panama in their warm up matches. The Swiss will be relying on a strong midfield and defence if they are to get anything out of their clash with the favourites.
Brazil v Switzerland World Cup 2018 Betting Tips
This match has Brazil written all over it. The Samba boys will be looking to make a statement of intent against a solid European side and will come out guns blazing and hopefully avoid an early Swiss sucker punch. They have more than enough firepower to overwhelm the Swiss and could be racking up goals if things go their way. Switzerland will come out with a negative approach in an attempt to shut Brazil down early and perhaps hit them on a counter attack. We don’t think that will be enough as Brazil should win this game by a couple of goals. We’re going to be backing Brazil -1 at 11/10 in the hopes that they win by 2 goals or more.
