Brazil and Switzerland will be facing each other in the second group game of the 2022 World Cup, four years after they drew in Russia. Will Brazil manage to get the better of a team that is improving?
✔ 1X2 Prediction Brazil vs Switzerland
This match promises to be open and undecided. Quarter-finalists of the Euro, the Swiss want to confirm against a historic football nation, Brazil. We predict a game dominated by the Seleçao who would win with a comfortable two-goal lead.
✔ Correct Score Prediction Brazil vs Switzerland
In this kind of game, guessing the correct score is not an easy thing. We have put together a series of results for you depending on the outcome of the game and what you decide to bet on this game. Brazil are favourites but watch out for Switzerland who should not be underestimated.
This is the most likely scenario. Brazil are the favourites in their group and despite the progress of Switzerland, Gabriel Jesus’ teammates should be able to win this game. 3-1 and 2-1 could therefore be enough.
Even if Brazil seem superior, we should not underestimate a team that has been causing trouble to a lot of teams for many months now. A 1-1 or 2-2 draw is entirely possible between the two protagonists of the group.
This is the least likely option. If Switzerland managed to compete with France during the Euro or even with the European champions, Italy, and Brazil seem to be too strong for the Swiss as they stand. Should the European country pull off a surprise, we can imagine that the gap will not be huge, 0-1 or 1-2.
✔ Half-Time/Full-Time prediction: Brazil – 1st half: Brazil – 2nd half
Brazil could take advantage of their current good form and their individuality to get the upper hand on their opponent very quickly. After the break, the 2014 hosts would then be able to extend their lead and win rather comfortably.
✔ Goalscorer Prediction Brazil vs Switzerland
We can imagine the Brazilian attack leaving an impact on this game. Real’s Vinicius Junior could be decisive as well as the Seleçao’s best-attacking element, Neymar. On the Swiss side, Breel Embolo, who is often a threat to opposing defences, will definitely be the player to watch out for on the Brazilian side.
✔ Double Chance Goalscorer: Vinicius Jr / B. Embolo
As mentioned above, Vinicius Jr and Breel Embolo will certainly be in the starting line-up and have a good chance of scoring in what promises to be an exciting fixture. Both strikers, who have experience in the biggest international competitions, could shine in this game.
📄 Analysis Brazil – Switzerland
Brazil enjoyed themselves. In the South American zone, the five-time World Cup winner had no trouble qualifying. By dominating their group (14 wins and 3 draws in 17 games, but above all only 5 goals conceded), Brazil are one of the favourites for the next World Cup.
Switzerland continue to impress. The Swiss created a sensation by finishing at the top of their qualifying group, two points ahead of Italy, who failed to qualify from the play-offs. In eight games, Switzerland did not lose only conceded two goals despite facing Italy, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria, and Lithuania.
Brazil and Switzerland four years later. At the World Cup in Russia, the two teams had already met in the group stage and had drawn 1-1. Zuber responded to Coutinho’s opener. This will be an opportunity for the Europeans to measure their progress against a great nation.
Brazil are on a 17-game unbeaten streak. The South American side’s last defeat was in the Copa America final lost to Argentina in July 2021 (1-0). Since then, they have had a very solid record with 12 wins and 5 draws and an Olympic title, their second in a row.
Switzerland are consolidating after the Euro. After being cruelly eliminated in the quarter-finals by Spain on penalties during the Euro, Murat Yakin’s men have not lost in official competition since, losing only once in a friendly against England in March.
