Serbia vs Brazil preview

On paper this is a formality, Brazil smoothly move through to the knockout rounds. However, Serbia have been better than their result against Switzerland suggests and Brazil have been worse than expected.
 Brazil have the better squad and two clearly world class matchwinners in Neymar and Coutinho. Tite has said that he will stick with the strangely misfiring Jesus despite the increasing clamour for Firmino to come into this side. Admittedly though a lot of this clamour is from Europe where Firmino is much more highly thought of than he is in his native Brazil.
 I think Brazil's greater quality will just about see them over the line, although I wouldn't be totally shocked if there was an upset.

Final score prediction: 1-2

Odds:  Serbia  13/2  Draw 13/4 Brazil  1/2

Best bet: Both teams to score  3/4
