Switzerland will get its shot at the powerhouse that is Brazil in its second Group Stage game of the tournament. The two teams face off on Nov. 28, at Stadium 974 in Ras Abu Aboud.

After defeating Serbia 2-0 in the first matchup, Brazil, the favorite to win the tournament, is expected to get its biggest challenge of the group stage in this clash.

It’ll be even more challenging without star scorer Neymar (ankle), who will miss at least this matchup. Even so, South America’s largest country should find a way to pull out a win behind its other strong attackers at the top of the pitch.

Switzerland will have its hands full against the number one-ranked team in the world according to FIFA. Arsenal star and Swiss captain Granit Xhaka will look to lead his side to a result in their hopes to advance to the knockout stage.

Brazil vs Switzerland Prediction

Brazil 3-0 Switzerland

The Swiss will play Brazil for the second straight World Cup, however, they will not be able to replicate the result from the 2018 fixture.

Brazil’s squad for this tournament is arguably the strongest in recent memory. While there will be familiar faces representing the country such as captain Thiago Silva and Gabriel Jesus, the emergence of young stars such as Vinícius Júnior, Antony, and Gabriel Martinelli has raised the ceiling of Tite’s squad.

Switzerland’s attack has simply not been up to par to compete with Brazil in this match. Head coach Murat Yakin will look to his midfield for the consistency they’ve shown for many years with Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri manning the center of the pitch. Haris Seferovic will be expected to contribute at the top of the pitch, but he has struggled at Galatasaray this season, scoring just two goals.

Brazil’s track record should give anyone who tails this play confidence. The powerhouse averaged 0.94 goals in the first half of games and 1.41 in the final 45’ minutes of South American World Cup Qualifiers.

The relentless attack is what has made Brazil such a dangerous team ahead of the tournament. Switzerland has been prone to conceding goals lately, and Brazil will be playing much more confidently in its second game of the World Cup.
