The time has come for those who are considered the main favorites to lift the World Cup trophy, as Brazil will be playing for the first time in the tournament to face dangerous Serbia in Group G.

Both nations will collide at the Lusail Stadium after meeting in the group stage four years ago when La Canarinha got away with the win (2-0).

The Brazilians, who are the only nation in World Cup history to have qualified for every tournament since the first edition back in 1930, will want to improve on their quarter-final exit against Belgium four years ago in Russia.

Brazil vs Serbia: odds

Although Brazil are expected to defeat Serbia, the European squad impressed in UEFA qualifying, topping their group after winning six and drawing two of their eight games.

Neymar, Vinicius Jr., Casemiro, Thiago Silva and co. are the favorites here, with odds of 1/2 (1.50) for them to come out on top.

Serbia, ranked 25th in the world by FIFA, can be backed at 11/2 (7.50) with the draw offered at 10/3 (4.33).

Brazil vs Serbia: prediction

Brazil will go into the match with a 15-game unbeaten run across all competitions, getting the victory in each of their last seven in the process by an aggregate score of 26-2.

Moreover, the Brazilians have won both of their previous two meetings against Serbia without conceding, so Tite’s squad will be confident to grab their first three points at the Lusail Stadium.

Not only the stats are against Serbia, but history too, besides their negative record vs. Brazil, they have lost seven of their nine World Cup matches in total, the most defeats by any European nation.

Despite securing promotion to League A of the UEFA Nations League earlier this year and getting good results at a European level, a World Cup opener against the Brazilians may be too much of a challenge for Dragan Stojkovic’s side.

Prediction: Brazil 2-0 Serbia
