Brazil vs Serbia wraps up the first matchday of the World Cup. Brazil is the history of the tournament. The team that has won the most trophies. The team that has not missed a single edition. And the team that is regarded as the biggest favourite to go all the way in Qatar, according to the odds offered by the best football betting sites.
There is a deep connection between Brazil and Serbia. Once upon a time, Yugoslavia was called “Europe’s Brazil” when it came to football. While no Europeans typically go to play in South America, there has been a number of Yugoslavians playing in the Brasileirao. And, of course, Serbia’s biggest stadium is nicknamed “Maracana”.

Venue: Lusail Iconic Stadium (Lusail)
It has been 20 years since the last time a Brazilian captain lifted the World Cup trophy. This time around, Brazil has one of the most impressive rosters we have ever seen in world football.
Two world-class goalkeepers in Alisson and Ederson. A defence that features the likes of Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex Sandro, Militao, and Dani Alves. A midfield line with players like Casemiro, Paqueta, and Fabinho. And an array of wingers and strikers, such as Richarlison, Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus, Antony, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Martinelli, and Neymar.
We are talking about a roster so rich that Gabriel Magalhaes, Philippe Coutinho, and Roberto Firmino were left out from the 26-men selection.
Those who think that Brazil vs Serbia will be lob-sided, have not seen how impressive the Serbians have recently been. Especially in the attacking department, this is a formidable group of players which includes Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Juventus’ Filip Kostic, Sevilla’s Nemanja Gudelj, Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic, Ajax’s Dusan Tadic, Fiorentina’s Luka Jovic, and Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Mitrovic will start from the bench, as he is still recovering from an ankle injury, but playmaker Tadic is ready to go.
Brazil (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Paqueta; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius; Gabriel Jesus
Serbia (3-5-2): V. Milinkovic-Savic; Milenkovic, S. Mitrovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, Gudelj, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic, Tadic; Vlahovic, Jovic
Brazil can get to three goals by themselves. But Serbia is more than capable of helping towards that target.
