Our Brazil vs Serbia prediction: Brazil to win.
No team has won more world cups than Brazil, which is why every World Cup predictor out there is handing them the number 1 favourite spot to win the competition. Our World Cup betting outrights, has Brazil at odds of 9 to 2. They are also ranked number 1 in the FIFA world rankings. So, it seems pretty much nailed on that the consensus is that Brazil will do very well, and we would have to agree. Their form has been good for the most part, with some odd draws here and there, but they’ve only lost one game in two years. We might be safe in assuming that they will comfortably top the table in Group G, and that tells you all there is to know about our thoughts on this fixture.
World Cup History
As far as World Cup predictions go, it’s hard to not see Brazil doing well in this year’s competition. Their history with the competition is legendary. They have won the trophy 5 times, they have appeared in every World Cup, and only twice have they finished in the Group Rounds. The Brazilian team had two glory periods winning it back-to-back in 1958 and 1962, then winning in 1970. They would then win again in 1994 and 1998, coming runners-up in the tournament in between.
While this is all incredible, it’s odd to say they wobbled since the 2006 competition, finishing in the Quarter-finals, and again in 2010 and 2018. Even when they hosted in 2014, they came in 4th place.
So, 2022 in Qatar, how will they fair? Well, put your money on getting out of the Group Stage that’s for sure, and at odds of 9 to 2, it’s a good return for the potential winners.
Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022
As Brazil has not lost a game in two years it’s very safe to say that their form is outstanding. Here are the results of their World Cup qualifiers that lead them to top the table and book tickets to Qatar. Note, only 17 of the 18 games were officially played following the controversy against Argentina after several players broke Covid-19 rules, which led to the abandoning of the game.

Brazil Players to Watch
For the game against Serbia, we think there will be three outstanding players that will influence and impact on the result. You can use these players to perhaps look at other football betting markets to put money on.
- Neymar da Silva Santos Jr.: Position: Forward. One of the best forward players of his generation. If you want goals, look no further. He brings to Qatar a total of 119 caps, 74 goals, 53 assists, and 29 bookings. He is the complete player and possibly featuring in his last World Cup aged 30.
- Raphael Dias Belloli (Raphinha) : Position: Left Wing. New to the squad, this rising talent will light up this game and tournament with his abundance of skill. He comes with 9 caps, 3 goals, and 2 assists. The world will have a new favourite player after this World Cup.
- Carlos Henrique Venancio Casemiro: Position: Central Defensive Midfield. For this game expect his role to be the playmaker, defusing attacks and setting forward transitions to the wings. He comes with 63 caps, 5 goals, 2 assists, and 16 bookings.
Many World Cup bets placed on this match will not be favouring the Serbian national team to pull a shock result out of the bag against the Brazilians. However, are we all being blindsided by the majesty of Brazil? Serbia may carry outright odds of 149 to 1 making them 17th favourites to win, but their form coming into this tournament should have teams worried. Their current world ranking has them in 25th position.
World Cup History
Their history of the World Cup can’t really be used to help gauge your football predictions, because of the complexities that surround their political identity over the decades. Formally of Yugoslavia, then Serbia and Montenegro, and now, finally independent and going just by Serbia. Just looking at their record under the Serbia identity, they have qualified twice, in 2010 and 2018, and in each, they only made it as far as the Group Stages.
Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022
To qualify for the journey to Qatar, Serbia played 8 games and came top of their table with 6 wins, 2 draws, and obviously zero losses. They scored a total of 18 goals, conceding 9.

Serbia Players to Watch
If there is a way of beating Brazil which of Serbia’s team can help to make it happen? Here are three stars that might be able to have an impact on the fixture.
- Aleksandar Mitrovic: Position: Striker. One of the best Serbian players of all time. Heavily relied on to score and he does. 74 caps, 46 goals, 5 assists, and 18 bookings.
- Dusan Tadic: Position: Left Wing. Vitally needed to help break up Brazil’s wing attacks. And to help on Serbia’s counter-attacking game. 88 caps, 18 goals, and 32 assists.
- Sergej Milinkovic-Savic : Position: Centre Midfield. If Serbia needs to control play to stop Brazil’s playmaking over the park, then Sergej will be the one to win and distribute the ball into dangerous areas for attacks. 34 caps, 6 goals, and 7 assists.
