June 26, 2018
Rejuvenated Brazil seek Serbia success to cement last 16 position
After a slow start to their 2018 World Cup campaign, Brazil are now seeking a victory over Serbia to cement their position in the last 16.
The Samba Boys entered the tournament as the favourites to prevail outright on their travels and just sprung into life in their last outing.
After a disappointing start to proceedings, having drawn with Switzerland, Brazil then rallied to a dramatic late victory over Costa Rica.
Goals from Philippe Coutinho and skipper Neymar earned a 2-0 triumph in that previous clash, with both strikes coming in added time.
Next up, against the Serbians in their final group encounter, they are 6/4 with Coral to ease to a comfortable victory to nil.
Neymar finding his feet in Russia
Brazil captain Neymar was met with plenty of criticism in light of the draw with Switzerland, while that has also carried on into the next game for his theatrics involved.
But it’s clear that after recovering from his previous long-term injury, the PSG superstar is now finding his feet in Russia, perhaps at the right time for his nation.
The rejuvenated skipper can now be backed at 10/3 with bet365 to grab the opening goal of the game against Serbia, after finally returning to the form everyone had waited to witness.
Meanwhile, Barcelona ace Coutinho is also a threat after enjoying a strong surge on Russian soil and he is 7/5 with bet365 to dispatch anytime here.
For the Serbian roster, Aleksandar Mitrovic is 11/4 with Betfair to find a way past Brazil at some stage during this intriguing tussle.
