Brazil vs. Serbia preview
Brazil is among the main favorites to win the trophy, and in this country, they have been waiting for 20 years for their national team to return to the throne of the world. Cariocas have won the World Cup five times in history and hope this trophy will finally return to their possession after two decades of waiting, but it will not be easy for them.
In the first round, the Brazilians are already facing a rather unpleasant opponent because they will play against Serbia, which, according to many, is one of the dark horses who could spring a surprise with its performance in Qatar.
The Serbs arrived motivated in Qatar, and Dragan Stojković took the best players he currently had available to the World Cup.
Tite wants Brazil to enter this game offensively and show its strength already in the first match at the World Cup and for Serbia to be the team against which they will let everyone know that they came for the gold. The Brazilian media state that Carioke will play very offensively against the Eagles and that Tite mostly played a formation in which he will have as many as four attackers, which the Serbs could punish with their deadly counters.
Brazil vs. Serbia prediction
Brazil is unbeaten in its last 15 games and is currently on a seven-game winning streak. Cariocas have scored at least four goals in four of the previous five games, which speaks volumes for their attacking form. Serbia plays very erratically, but the impression is that they are good when they need it most.
This refers first to the last round of qualifications when they beat Portugal in Lisbon and secured a direct qualification to the World Cup. Serbia has five wins in their previous six games and traveled to Qatar after a 5-1 win in a friendly against Bahrain.
Who is the referee
The match between Serbia and Brazil in the World Cup’s opening round of the group stage will be officiated by seasoned Iranian referee Alireza Fagani on Thursday.
This 44-year-old Kashmiri referee has been on the FIFA list since 2008. He has a plenty of expertise, having been elected Iranian referee of the year three times and Asian referee of the year twice. He has been living and working in Australia since 2019.
