Brazilians for the introduction to the championship with the Serbs, the Uruguayans and the Portuguese are also in action



Prediction of Thursday’s matches

Today, the five-time world champions Brazil are also starting their performances at the World Cup in Qatar. It is an evening match, which will be broadcast live on TV SLO 2 and on MMC starting at 8 p.m.

It is the third match between the mentioned national teams in history and the first since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, when the Brazilians won 2:0 in Moscow on June 27.

Brazil is the only national team that has participated in every World Cup since 1930, when world cup hosted by Uruguay. In the last 15 matches of the group stage of the competition, they are undefeated (12 wins and 3 draws). The last time they tasted the bitterness of defeat was at the 1998 championship in France, when they were sensationally beaten 2:1 by Norway in Marseille.

On the other hand, Serbia will play for the fourth time in the last five World Cups, missing only the 2014 championship, which was hosted by Brazil. However, the statistics from the championships since 2006 are not exactly brilliant: the Serbs lost 7 out of 9 matches of the group stage, which is the worst result of the European national teams in this period, and in general only the selected team of Australia fared worse (8 defeats).

The main weapon of the Serbs? An exceptional connection Aleksandar MitrovicDusan Tadic. The former was the third scorer of the European qualifiers for the championship with 8 goals in as many matches, only the Dutch scored more goals Memphis Depay and an Englishman Harry Kane (both 12 each), while Tadić was the best passer (6 passes in 8 games).

There will be Brazilians, just like on every one World Cup, under great pressure. The compatriots are expecting a record sixth championship title, which a young but very talented national team will try to win. As many as 16 footballers will taste playing in the championship for the first time. The new generation includes footballers like Vinicius jr., Rodrygo, Raphinha, Eder Militao, Bruno Guimarães and Antony. Along with veteran Neymar, Brazil will be a very big deal for any opponent. The match between Brazil and Serbia is scheduled for tonight at 8 p.m. hours.
