What’s up with the team?
Brazil boss Tite has the luxury of having a fully fit squad with Antony, Bruno Guimaraes and Alex Telles shrugging off minor injury problems.
It looks like the favorites will go with a 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 formation, with Casemiro and Fred likely to be joined by Lucas Paqueta or even Neymar in the hole to make room for anything Raphinha, Richarlison and Vinicius Junior.
Aleksandar Mitrovic is out with an ankle injury and will likely start on the substitutes’ bench which should give Luka Jovic a chance to join Dusan Vlahovic in the lead.
Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is also expected to add a threat and captain Dusan Tadic will look to pull the strings in the No.10 role.
Brazil XI: Alisson; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Fred; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius Jr; Richarlison
Serbia XI: V. Milinkovic-Savic; Milenkovic, S. Mitrovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, Gudelj, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic; Tadic; Vlahovic, Jovic
Brazil look dominant as they enter the World Cup, with Tite’s superb system able to shield Alisson’s goal and allow their star-studded front line to thrive. Serbia have quality but the Selecao will have too much of it here, with Neymar likely to attract double squads and allow Raphinha, Vini Jr and many others to shine. Brazil 4-1 Serbia.
