Brazil v Switzerland betting preview – Tite’s team should keep it tight

It’s not a football World Cup unless Brazil are lining up at the tournament and the South Americans qualified in style to reach Russia.

Tite has been universally acclaimed by Brazilians since replacing Dunga and he’s getting the best from his glittering array of players including Neymar who looks fit enough to fire his team to glory.

This is a decent opening match for the 2018 World Cup favourites, with Brazil facing a Switzerland team who look a fairly modest team and the European side only just edged out Northern Ireland in a two-legged play-off.

Vladimir Petkovic helped this team reach the Euro 2016 last sixteen stage before a penalty shoot-out defeat against Poland, with the manager short of firepower and Benfica’s Haris Seferovic looks to be carrying their scoring hopes.

Xherdan Shaqiri often has something up his sleeve, although it’s worth noting that Brazil are a defensively tight team who boast Casemiro, Fernandinho and Paulinho in the engine room.

Gabriel Jesus is expected to spearhead an attack and will be flanked by Neymar and Philippe Coutinho, with Brazil wanting a clean victory which is something that was achieved against Switzerland recently.

We can see the Brazilians stretching their legs as the match wears on and a 3-0 victory could be about right.
