Serbia

After being eliminated in the group stage at the previous three World Cup finals since independence in 1990, there is a sense of optimism that Serbia can finally reach the knockout stages for the first time Qatar.

The Eagles, ranked 25th in the world by FIFA, impressed in UEFA qualifying and topped the table after winning six and drawing two of their eight matches, including a suffocating 2-1 victory over Portugal in their last match.

Dragan Stojkovic’s side then secured promotion to League A of the UEFA Nations League earlier this year, thanks to four wins and one draw in six matches. Indeed, a 0-1 loss to Norway in June was one of only two defeats in their last 16 international matches in all competitions.

Brazil

Brazilian coach Tite is set to have a perfect fit squad for Thursday’s competition, with Antony, Bruno Guimaraes, and Alex Telles all recovering from minor problems.

If reports are to be believed, Selecao could deploy a 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 formation, with captain Thiago Silva starting in a four-man defence alongside Danilo, Marquinhos, and Alex Sandro, cover first.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Richarlison, who has been recovering from a calf injury during the World Cup, will be given the nod to Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus for the top spot.

On the Serbia side, Aleksandar Mitrovic is still not fully recovered from an ankle injury and is expected to come off the bench, with Luka Jovic starting alongside Dusan Vlahovic.

Stojkovic is set to return to a three-man defense after lining up with four at the back in a friendly against Bahrain 5-1 last week, with Strahinja Pavlovic hoping to join Nikola Milenkovic and Stefan Mitrovic in the position of central defender.

All three defenders could be tasked with shielding goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, who is expected to start against Marko Dmitrovic and Predrag Rajkovic despite only seven caps for the national team.
