Brazil is among the favourites to win the World Cup in Russia and win approach this match as a must win. They qualified at the top of the South Americans’ qualifying table winning 12 and losing just one of their 18 fixtures. They have a good striking record scoring 31 goals and conceding only 11, meaning good defensively too. The star player to watch in this team that is star-filled is Neymar although he is yet to fully recover from a toe injury.
Switzerland will be facing a tough opponent in this match but their history while playing big teams is impressive. In 2010 they shocked the world by beating Spain 1-0 but then lost to Chile and drew with Honduras, cutting their journey short. They won all their 9 qualifying matches to book a slot in Russia. Their Star player is Xherdan Shaqiri who plays for relegated Stoke City. Dortmund’s rising star Manuel Akanji is set to make an impact against Brazil in his first ever World Cup appearance.
