Richarlison’s Stunning Performance Secures Three Points for Brazil

There was no room for a third massive upset in the World Cup 2022 last night. Brazil kicked off the WC campaign in style with a 2-0 victory against Serbia in Group G. The Eagles did offer solid resistance in the first half, but simply couldn’t hold or outrun Brazilians in the second half.

The deadlock was broken in the 60th minute by Richarlison. The same player scored a screamer, beautiful bicycle kick thirteen minutes after to secure the points for Selecao. Eventually, when we draw a line, this was a very one-sided clash where everyone expected to see more from the Serbians.

Brazilian fans were in peril seeing the team’s biggest star Neymar Jr limped out of the pitch in the 80th minute after a horrible tackle by Nemanja Milenkovic. Later on, the camera captured Neymar sitting in tears, so we will have to wait for an update on this injury. With or without Neymar, Brazil is a big favorite to end the group with a maximum of nine points. Their next match is scheduled for Monday versus Switzerland.

We have a range of World Cup betting offers available for those looking to get involved with the tournament, either by taking advantage of the Brazil World Cup odds, or something else.

Brazil Remains the Top Favorite to Win the World Cup

The only national team which made an appearance in every single World Cup is Brazil, and in Qatar, they are searching for the sixth title. Germany and Italy have four. Der Mannschaft started the competition with a shocking loss to Japan, while Azzurri didn’t even qualify, so Brazil is not in danger of sharing the first place on the eternal list. When it comes to the “Outright to win” odds, the Selecao is now an even bigger favourite to lift the most prestigious trophy at 5/2 (was 3/1 before the first match against Serbia).

Brazil to win the World Cup - 5/2

Brazil are now stronger favourites to win the tournament

It’s been a while since Brazilians reached the semi-finals of the World Cup. Their previous attempt in Russia was looking solid in the group stages, ending with two victories and a draw. The knockouts started with a smooth 2-0 win over Mexico, followed by a big upset at that time and a 1-2 loss to Belgium in the quarter-finals. Have Tite’s boys learned the lesson back then?

Richarlison Repaid the Faith

There were many discussions on whether should Richarlison take place in the starting lineup against Serbia. He wasn’t consistent in Tottenham Hotspur this season but the story is completely different when wearing a national jersey. Richarlison scored eight goals in his last seven appearances for Brazil, while also providing two assists. Now, after bagging two goals against the Eagles last night, Brazil’s number nine is the best candidate to end the World Cup as Top Goalscorer at 4/1 odds.
