England v Brazil International Friendly, 14th November
It was a good display from England’s second string as they played out a good 0-0 draw with Germany at Wembley. Boss Gareth Southgate had a good look at some alternatives with so many of the usual starters missing through injury. Brazil strolled to a 3-1 friendly win over Japan on Friday as they look a real force to be reckoned with ahead of the 2018 World Cup. England are the 3/1 underdogs to pick up a win in this friendly with Brazil at 5/6 and the draw at 11/4.
England v Brazil Betting Tips
So England’s young players like Ruben Loftus-Cheek impressed on their chance at Wembley against Germany. A 0-0 draw was played out, and while there were huge positives to take away from the game when you look at it, they were spared against an under-strength Germany side by keeper Jordan Pickford and by some unusual in-German like profligacy in front of goal. This is going to be a tougher game for England but it is worth a flutter on both teams to score at 8/11 with bet365 simply because that has happened in four of the last five meetings between the two of them. England came through their World Cup qualifying campaign unbeaten but failed to really impress and boss Gareth Southgate will again look at alternative options as they face up to the South American giants.
The last time these two met was back in 2013 when they faced each other twice. England took a 2-1 home win over the Brazilians thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard, while they played out a 2-2 draw away against them. England have lost just one of their last four games against Brazil than in a W1 D2 L1 record. That 2013 victory for England over Brazil though was the first time that they had beaten them since back in 1984. Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between the two clubs and therefore it is worth looking over 2.5 goals with bet365 at price of 4/5. In the anytime goalscorer market, the shortest priced option for England is Jamie Vardy at 12/5. England are W8 D3 L2 in their last thirteen games following that embarrassing Euro 2016 loss against Iceland. The two defeats in that sequence were friendly international losses against Germany and France.
Brazil continued their fine form with a 3-1 win over Japan on the weekend. The Selecao are now W13 D2 L1 in their last sixteen games. They are going to take some stopping. They have the pace and quality of Gabriel Jesus and Neymar up front and that is enough to strike terror into anyone’s defence. They are joint even money favourites in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market for the game. They have scored at least three goals in five of their last seven matches now (competitive and friendly). They have collected three clean sheets in their last four games as well and they are a quote of 11/5 to win to nil at Wembley. They simply sauntered their way to booking a place at the World Cup by winning the CONMEBOL zone by ten points over Uruguay with a brilliant W12 D5 L1 record.
Who will win – England v Brazil Predictions
Brazil to win: To think that England are up to the quality of Brazil is blind optimism. The Three Lions were let off the hook against Germany and their defence is likely going to get tested much more against the world quality that Brazil have. Back the visitors to win.
