Serbia v Brazil Prediction & Betting Tips – World Cup 201826th June 2018 / lee
Serbia v Brazil World Cup 2018, 27th June – 7.00 p.m
There is pressure on both of these in a tight qualification race in Group E. Brazil can get through to the next round with a draw in this game as that keeps Serbia behind them. The draw could be enough for Serbia if Switzerland were to lose by a couple of goals against Costa Rica, which isn’t too likely. So Serbia really are going out for the win in this game. Read our Serbia v Brazil betting tips to see which way we think this fixture will go.

Serbia v Brazil Betting Tips
After winning their opening game against Costa Rica, Serbia were in the driving seat to make it through to the round of 16 as they were leading against Switzerland in their second group stage fixture. However, it all fell apart for them later in the game and they conceded a dramatic stoppage-time goal which sunk them to a 2-1 loss. After looking so good to make it through to the knockout phase of the competition that will be a bitter pill to swallow for them. There is still a chance for them to get through to the next round and in order to make that happen they will have to go out and get a victory in this game. Serbia have won three and lost three of their last six fixtures. For those last six fixtures for Serbia have ended with less than two goals and you are looking at under 2.5 goals for 4/5 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.) which is one of our leading Serbia v Brazil betting tips.
It was strange to see Serbia end up losing that game against Switzerland because they were the better of the two sides and had far more attacking impetus about them. If Serbia were to pick up a draw in this game that would mean that they would need Switzerland to lose against Costa Rica by more than one goal. With that not looking like a high probability, Serbia’s hopes are going to be resting on them pulling off a massive World Cup shock. They do have some quality in their ranks and it is Aleksandar Mitrovic who is their shortest priced option in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.). Do they have something that special in them?
While the Samba boys have not looked very good at all despite going into the tournament as the outright favourite because they were clicking along in some fantastic form. They have not found their rhythm at all at this World Cup which has been very strange to see. After being held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland in their opening group stage fixture Brazil then made really hard work of beating Costa Rica. The Selecao did get the win in a game but both goals came in stoppage time which was a bit cruel on Costa Rica for all of the great defensive work that they had done in the match. So the lack of a good Brazilian performance so far at the 2018 World Cup will at least give Serbia some hope of getting what they need out of this game.
It most certainly has not been convincing stuff from Brazil but they extend their good unbeaten form to twelve and they have Neymar and Gabriel Jesus as the joint 3/1 odds first goalscorer favourites for this game* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.). They aren’t short of the scoring power of course. The Brazilians have scored at least two goals in three of their last four extras and in the bet365 correct score market you have a quote of 6/1 on Brazil 2-0 result* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 4:02 a.m.) which is something that they would be happy with at this point. Interestingly now there is a very real probability that if Brazil win this group, they will be facing Germany in the round of 16.
Serbia v Brazil Head to Head
There has only been one previous meeting between Serbia and Brazil which was a 2014 friendly and Brazil collected a 1-0 victory in that game.
Who will win – Serbia v Brazil Predictions
Brazil have not been all that impressive so far and there are going to be points of this game where Serbia do get some pressure on them. However we cannot see the South Americans losing the game at the end of the day, and as they can’t sit back if they want to win the group, we are sticking with a victory for Brazil.
