Brazil, the most successful nation in World Cup history has not reached the World Cup final for 20 years, an affront they must wash away this year, especially as the last two defeats, against Germany (7-1), and against Belgium (2-1), have still not been digested at home. The increasingly successful Switzerland will have to do even more this year and break the glass ceiling of the round of 16, which they have not passed since 1954. Our Brazil vs Switzerland prediction ought to help you make your pick between these 2 teams.

Our Brazil vs Switzerland prediction: Brazil to win.

This match between Switzerland and Brazil is the second one in Group F. If you want to make a World Cup prediction on the other game in the group, be aware that Serbia takes on Cameroon a little earlier on the same day, which we’ll also have a World Cup prediction for as part of our World Cup 2022 predictions.

Brazil vs Switzerland Qualifications

To get to Qatar, Brazil and Switzerland had to go through a whole qualification phase, which is important to look at for your World Cup betting considerations. First, Nati had to finish top of their group to go straight to the World Cup, while the runner-up had to go through the playoff. The Swiss, who had been outclassed for a long time, made a great comeback against Italy, and took the first place, depriving them of a second consecutive World Cup. Here are the final standings from Group C of the European Zone:

Ranking Team Goal Difference Points
1 Switzerland + 13 18 points
2 Italy + 11 16 points
3 Northern Ireland – 1 9 points
4 Bulgaria – 8 8 points
5 Lithuania – 15 3 points

On the South American side, there is only one round, and all teams play each other, and the top four qualify directly, while the fifth goes through the play-off. In 17 games, Brazil finished first, winning 14 games and leaving 6 points to their opponents, with 3 draws. The Seleção also achieved the feat of finishing as the best attack (40 goals scored, 13 more than Argentina and Ecuador) and best defence (5 goals conceded, 3 less than Argentina) of the qualifiers:

Ranking Country Goal Average Points
1 Brazil + 35 45 points
2 Argentina + 19 39 points
3 Uruguay 0 28 points
4 Ecuador + 8 26 points
5 Peru – 3 24 points
6 Colombia + 1 23 points
7 Chile – 7 19 points
8 Paraguay – 14 16 points
9 Bolivia – 19 15 points
10 Venezuela – 20 10 points

Here is a summary table of the last 5 editions of both teams at World Cups:

Edition Switzerland Brazil
2018 Round of 16 against Sweden (1 – 0) Quarterfinal against Belgium (2 – 1)
2014 Round of 16 against Argentina (1 – 0 ap) Semi-Final against Germany (7 – 1)
2010 3rd in Group H behind Spain and Chile Quarter Final vs Netherlands (2 – 1)
2006 Round of 16 against Ukraine (0 – 0 then tab) Quarter Final against France (1 – 0)
2002 Eliminated in Europe zone finishing behind Russia

Brazil Preview

Brazil arrives in Qatar as heavy favourites. And for good reason, the yellow and green have quality in every position, and the coach, Tite, had a real headache selecting just a few players. In the goalkeeping position alone, he will have to choose between Alisson Becker, Liverpool’s keeper, and Ederson, Manchester City’s keeper. The attacking line-up is even worse, Richarlison, Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Vinicius Junior, Antony, Rodrygo, Raphinha, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Martinelli, Matheus Cunha, Evanilson, and many others, all of whom are regulars at top European clubs. Football predictions when this team is involved are a major headache, as you can tell.

In the last Copa America, Brazil reached the final before losing to Lionel Messi’s Argentina. Three years ago, at the 2019 Copa America, the Seleção won their 9th title, still far behind Uruguay and Argentina, winners of 15 Copa Americas each. In the last edition, Brazil beat Venezuela (3-0), Peru (4-0) and Colombia (2-1), then drew with Ecuador (1-1) before beating Chile and Peru in the final phase (1-0 on each occasion), then losing by the smallest of scores to the Albiceleste.

Switzerland Preview

Switzerland arrived in Qatar with the status of a team to watch from afar. The Nati, who have often qualified for the World Cup finals, are not really frightening and will have to show more if they really want to worry the rest of the world teams. The red and whites will be able to count on several key players who will be familiar to football and football betting fans, such as Granit Xhaka of Arsenal, Yann Sommer and Nico Elvedi of Borussia Mönchengladbach, Breel Embolo of AS Monaco, Ricardo Rodriguez of Torino, or Fabian Schär of Newcastle.

During the last Euro, Switzerland surprised many observers by finishing second in their group behind Italy and then taking out the favourites, the French team, on penalties (3 – 3 then 5 – 4). In the quarter-finals, the Nati lost to Spain, only on penalties, where, despite a great Yann Sommer, the Swiss went home with their heads held high. Since then, Murat Yakin’s men have also played in the Nations League, in League A, where, in group 1, they managed to stay behind Spain and Portugal, but ahead of the Czech Republic.

Who Will Win? Brazil vs Switzerland Prediction

This match between Brazil and Switzerland is the second for both teams, who have already faced Serbia and Cameroon respectively. Currently, neither nation has been guaranteed a place in the last eight, nor are they doomed to go home after the group stage. Although Brazil will surely play for the win, and Switzerland will settle for a draw, the only real objective for both teams is to take maximum points.

Our Brazil vs Switzerland prediction: Brazil to win.

Brazil vs Switzerland Betting Tips

Our World Cup tips for this match are as follows: Brazil are undoubtedly strong favourites to win, so placing a straight match bet on them to win offers little value. Of course, you could also use a -1.5 goal handicap to increase the chances of a Brazil victory, which could result in higher payouts if the Seleço wins by two or more goals.
