Brazil vs Switzerland Prediction
Brazil are enjoying their football currently with three wins on the bounce, and it began with a 3-0 win against Ghana. They went on to beat Tunisia by 1-5, before also getting the better of Serbia in a 2-0 victory. Brazil have been pretty scary, winning eight of their last 10 games across all tournaments, while also managing to draw two of the games in the process. They suffered defeat zero times.
Before their upcoming World Cup match, Brazil are performing absolutely brilliant, when it comes to goal scoring. In the past ten outings, they achieved a formidable average of 2.9 goals per game. An awe-inspiring total of 29 goals. They let three goals slip in, which creates an average of 0.3 per game. During this run, they fought their way to a clean sheet seven times.
Their past three matches saw Switzerland beating Czech Republic 2-1, losing 0-2 against Ghana, and beating Cameroon by 1-0. Switzerland claimed a modest four wins from their previous 10 matches across all tournaments. They drew one of the games, whilst losing five.
Switzerland are currently not the most scoring team in the World Cup, as they only found the back of the net nine times in ten matches. This is an average of just 0.9 goals a game in which they conceded 14 times, an average of 1.4 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring two times.
Missing out on three points in their upcoming World Cup group match will be next to scandalous for Brazil. Assuming a few more tough matches are coming up, securing a win here is essential. Switzerland have a mountain to climb in the second round of the World Cup, judging by the prices with the bookmakers. Anything but a defeat will be a remarkable result.
