Brazil is undoubtedly the most successful side in World Cup history and will be seeking a sixth triumph in Qatar come November 21.
The Selecao have not advanced beyond the quarter-finals since their 2002 victory in Japan while Serbia has failed to climb out of the group stages in their last two editions of the competition.
After Brazil’s humiliating 7-0 drubbing on home soil in 2014 – the South American giant will be gunning to make a statement. Our opening prediction is Brazil to win 3-0 at +1000 against Serbia.
Check here for the full rundown on the World Cup betting odds, the two teams’ head-to-head record, and where and what time the match is on locally.

- Belgium vs. Canada: Early World Cup Odds, Predictions, And Head-To-Head Record
Brazil thundered into Qatar as the favorites at +400 to lift the trophy and +25o to reach the final.
Tite’s side made qualification look like a walk in the park, finishing six points clear of Argentina at the top of the CONMEBOL section after 14 wins and three draws from their 17 matches.
Brazil rifled in an astonishing 40 goals and conceded just 5, with poster boy Neymar putting 8 in the back of the net.
Having scored in 3 of Brazil’s friendly wins warm-up wins, the PSG frontman is chasing Brazil’s virtuoso Pele’s all-time record of 77 and is only 2 goals behind on 75.
Brazil’s 2022 squad is filled to the brim with mouth-watering talent – with Alisson and Ederson as reliable choices in between the sticks and with Thiago Silva and Dani Alves providing plenty of experience at the back.
Casemiro and Philippe Coutinho offer a creative spark in midfield with Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Vinicius Junior, Roberto Firmino, Raphinha, Rodrygo, and Manchester United’s new boy Antony supporting Neymar up top.
When reviewing Brazil vs. Serbia odds, we are backing Brazil to win both halves of the match at +130, just as they did in 2018.
Serbia has had a good record of qualifying for World Cups – making appearances in the last 4 out of 5 World Cups.
This time around – the Serbs enjoyed a fantastic qualifying campaign – finishing 3 points above Portugal with an impressive record of 6 wins and 2 draws from their 8 games.
Star-studded striker Alexander Mitrovic topped the group with goals, scoring 8 – even scoring 2 more than Cristiano Ronaldo during what has been a stand-out year of the West London striker.
Mitrovic, who stood by Fulham in their quest to regain Premier League status, hammered in a whopping 43 goals to secure the Cottagers a return to the top flight. Fulham’s hitman has 9 goals to his name this season in the Premier League.
Ajax’s Dusan Tadic, formerly of Southampton, is their most-capped player with 88 appearances, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio has many admirers and Luka Jovic and Dusan Vlahovic are gifted frontmen.
Serbia only registered 2 goals in the 201o World Cup and repeated it in 2o18 with only 2 goals in the group stages.
Group G is dangerous – with Brazil, Switzerland, and Cameroon all vying for supremacy. Serbia is priced at +120 to qualify and make it out of the group.
Unfortunately, we can’t see the Serbs getting anything out of this contest, and backing Brazil to win and being the only team to score is what we predict at +135.
Brazil vs. Serbia Head-To-Head
The two sides have met twice in all competitions – once in 2014 in a friendly where Brazil won 1-0 and they met on the big stage at the 2018 Russia World Cup where Brazil again emerged and triumphed in a routine 2-0 win.
