Brazil takes the field as a great favorite to win the World Cup in Qatar 2022 and their first test will be Serbia, a very strong team with great attacking power.
Led by Neymar, Brazil wants to be the world champion again after 20 years and comes with a great team that has them as the biggest candidate for the title.
Serbia possibly has the best attack in a Copa do Mundo, but they have to show if there can be a balance with the other lines.

Por que apostar no Brasil
Brazil arrives confident. Both players and fans are convinced that this year they will win their sixth World Cup. In the concentration, they are seen happy, dancing, with their instruments, and laughing. Like a happy family. And surely that happiness will be taken to the field.
Neymar is the compass of this team. ‘O Craque’ is at a great level and his rivals know it. So much so that in each game he is one of the players that receive the most fouls.
They recently suffered a severe blow, losing the final of the Copa América at the Maracaná and against their eternal rival: Argentina. That has been Brazil’s only loss in the last 29 games, and they have had 24 wins in that period, currently having a 7-game winning streak.
Unlike several teams, they decided not to have friendly matches in recent weeks to avoid any injury. They arrive in perfect condition, without any injuries, and the only absences in the call are due to a technical decision.
Why Bet on Serbia
Talking about Serbia is talking about goals. Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Luka Jovic (Fiorentina), and Dusan Vlahovic (Juventus). The three are their club’s top scorers and Mitrovic’s numbers are outrageous: 76 games for the National Team (66 starts) and 50 goals (top scorer), and with Fulham last season and what’s going on this one, he has 52 goals in 56 games (all starting).
Also, Dusan Tadic must be added to this equation. The 34-year-old Ajax midfielder is on his last big date and is in excellent shape. They just beat Bahrain 5-1 a few days ago and Tadic scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist. Vlahovic, Jovic and Filip Duricic (Sampdoria) scored the others.
In addition to the players already mentioned, there are very good players in the midfield and among the goalkeepers, and suddenly defense is their Achilles heel.
The Serbs have just been promoted to League A of the UEFA Nations League and have 6 unbeaten games where they got 5 wins. They are in a great moment and they are motivated.
Final Betting Analysis: Brazil vs. Serbia
This may be the best game of the first matchday of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Two great teams, with very good players, and at a great time. Brazil arrives motivated and we believe that they are better than the Europeans, but surely it will cost them a lot and the Balkans will even score. However, we believe that South Americans will win.
At MyBookie.ag we find that Brazil is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -200, while Serbia has +540 and the draw is at +340.
The last time they met was in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, also in the group stage, and Brazil won 2-0 with goals from Paulinho and Thiago Silva. The Brazilians passed first while the Serbs were third and eliminated. Several of the players of the European team are back in Qatar in 2022, while the Verdeamarelha has changed a lot.
Go for a straight win for Brazil in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the win at -200, you will gain $50 for a total payout of $150.
