Brazil face a well organised Switzerland team on Monday looking to make a statement in the World Cup group stage. With one game gone, the competition is very much underway and there will be no excuses for anything other than three points for the Selecao.
Eagle Romeo: Brazil will win
It’s not surprising that Romeo picked Brazil for this match. Brazil is obviously stronger than Switzerland.
Both Brazil and Switzerland got life in Group G off to a winning start but it is the South Americans that head into matchday 2 as the clear favourite to win. Richarlison inspired Brazil to their win over Serbia while Switzerland had a Cameroon-born striker to thank for their victory over Cameroon.
Parrot Ratu: Brazil 4-2 Switzerland
Ratu predicted this will be a match with lots of goals. Six goals will be scored: 4 for Brazil and 2 for Switzerland.
SportsMole: Brazil 1-0 Switzerland
Switzerland will be pragmatic and are likely to do a better job than Serbia did of playing defensively against all of Brazil's talented attackers.
Much of this Swiss side played in the meeting of the two countries at Russia 2018, but Brazil look more formidable this time around and should edge it.
Supercomputer: 62.7 per cent chance of victory for Brazil
Brazil are unbeaten in their last 16 group stage games at the World Cup, and they are aiming to become the first team to go 17 without defeat in the group stages of the competition.
Opta’s model backs them to do just that, giving Brazil a 62.7 per cent chance of victory.
The probability of a draw is 21 per cent, while the supercomputer rates the likelihood of a Switzerland win at 16.3 per cent.
90min:Brazil 2-0 Switzerland
Even including their commanding victory over Serbia, Brazil have lost more World Cup games against European opposition (four) than they have won (three) since 2010. As recently as the last tournament, Switzerland added to the Seleçao's continental headache.
Die Nati's manager Murat Yakin described his squad as "the best Switzerland side ever" after their opener. However, Brazil aren't exactly lacking in quality - even if this generation doesn't quite stand among the nation's lofty list of legends, yet.
Since his debut, Brazil have lost the only two World Cup matches Neymar has missed by an aggregate score of 10-1. Switzerland may prove to be as obdurate as Serbia but this less Neymar-centric Brazil side should have enough to come out on top even if their star man doesn't feature.

Neymar blow for Brazil
Brazil made a near-perfect start to the 2022 World Cup, as they saw off Serbia 2-0 to win their opener. However, they have lost Neymar for the rest of the group stage, although they should expect to navigate clashes with Switzerland and Cameroon without him.
Neymark has been fouled 53 times at the World Cup since his debut in the competition in 2014. No player suffered as many fouls as his nine against Serbia, so it’s for the best that Brazil wrap him up for the next week or so as they look to win a record sixth crown.
Even without their superstar, Brazil have plenty of scoring talent and that should be evident against a Swiss side who also got off to a winning start.
Another test for Brazil
Since winning the 2002 World Cup, Brazil had fallen behind the best European sides. When they tend to come up short in this competition it’s usually against European teams, as they account for 16 of Brazil’s 18 total defeats at the World Cup.
The South American giants last put together a string of wins against European sides between 2002 and 2006, having fallen to a European side at each World Cup since Germany 16 years ago.
While that may warn you off backing the World Cup favourites, instead consider it the acid test of their trophy hopes. This Brazilian side are being hyped up because they look like contenders at long last. Starting the tournament with wins over the sides who toppled Portugal and Italy in qualifying would be a big message for Tite’s team to send out.
Richarlison to put Swiss to the sword
With Neymar out, look again to Richarlison as the main scoring threat for Brazil. The Tottenham forward has been the form man for his country of late and he boosted that with two stunning goals against the Swiss. He has scored nine goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions for Brazil. Since his debut for the national side in September 2018, he’s scored 19 times, more goals for Brazil than any other player has managed in that timeframe.
Brazil scored 40 times across 14 matches in qualifying and they’ve scored at least twice in seven of their last eight internationals. The array of midfield talent they’ve brought to Qatar should see them cover for Neymar’s absence, while this Swiss side conceded three goals to Italy and France at last year’s Euros. Back them to concede another couple in this clash.
Brazil are unbeaten in their last 16 group-stage games at the World Cup. Meanwhile, Switzerland have won just one of their eight games against South American sides at the finals, losing five times. Back Brazil for another 2-0 win on Monday.
