FIFA 2018 World Cup tournament favourites, Brazil, clash in Group E action with Switzerland to open their World Cup tilt in Rostov-on-Don in the early morning dawn hours of 18 June 2018, Australian time.

The two sides have met 8 times previously, but have not met since 2013;

  • Brazil Won 3
  • Switzerland Won 2
  • 3 Draws



No team in World Sport carries with an identity for flair, excitement and expectation of success than Brazil. Like so many other World Cups, Brazil arrives in Russia as one of the favourites to take the title.


Neymar — the world’s most expensive footballer — is one of the favourites for the Golden Boot award and he has creative midfielders behind, in Philipe Coutinho, Willian, Fernandinho, Renato Augusto and fellow forward Gabriel Jesus.


In defence, Brazil has strong centre-backs and full-backs, though the massive challenge will be overcoming the mental scars inflicted by the 2014 semi-final humiliation to Germany.



Switzerland could shock many with their quality. Vladimir Petkovic’s squad is confident in making the last 16. “My team has a got an excellent team spirit and have a tremendous will to succeed,” says Petkovic. Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka is the heart and soul of this team, dictating the flow of the game with pin-point passes and setting the tempo.

Brazil are the extremely short-priced $1.33 favourites for the match with Betstar. Value punters may do well to look elsewhere to make some money.

Switzerland are ridiculously good value at $8.50 and the draw is also a very healthy $4.75.
