Brazil vs Switzerland match preview

The Brazilians cruised through qualifying by topping the CONMEBOL table recording huge wins over Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.

Tite’s side won all three of their international friendlies in the lead-up to the competition including a 1-0 win in Germany against the defending world champions.

The five-time World Cup winners enter their 21st tournament ranked 2nd in the world and look a solid bet to go all the way in Russia.

Despite having booked their place in Russia going through the UEFA play-off spots, the Swiss enter the World Cup ranked 6th in the world.

In preparation for their 11th appearance at the finals, Switzerland recorded three wins in four whilst also managing to hold Spain to a 1-1 draw.

Manager Vladimir Petković will be looking to call upon plenty of the experience in his side with a number of his star men having played many games at the top level of European football throughout their careers.

Granit Xhaka picked up a knee injury in training, however, he appears to have recovered fully to play against Brazil.

Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri, recently linked with Liverpool, will be the man Die Nati will place their trust in to lead them in attack with Admir Mehmedi out injured.

Arsenal’s new signing Stephan Lichtsteiner will be another man to look out for in Russia with the 34-year-old being signed to reassure the Gunners’ frailties at the back.
