CURRENT STANDINGS
SCORE PREDICTIONS
Serbia 1-2 Brazil
Serbia are a tough team to beat. I expect Brazil to have enough to finish them off but they have struggled a bit so far. Brazil need the win though and will edge this one.
Switzerland 2-0 Costa Rica
Switzerland’s record in recent times is very impressive. Costa Rica made Brazil work for their win but, with their elimination already confirmed, Switzerland’s extra motivation to qualify will be enough.
TIPS
Serbia vs Brazil
Mitrovic 2+ shots on target and Neymar 2+ shots on target – 3/1
With both sides needing a result, expect there to be chances. Especially late on if Brazil are chasing a goal.
Gabriel Jesus to score first – 9/2
Coutinho has hit the opener for Brazil in both games so far so Brazil need their other attackers to take some of the goalscoring burden. I can’t see Jesus being quiet for a third game running.
Switzerland vs Costa Rica
Switzerland to win to nil – 6/4
The Swiss are tough to beat and tough to break down, as Brazil found. Costa Rica are yet to hit the net and I don’t expect them to here.
Shaqiri to score anytime – 9/4
The Stoke playmaker has been involved in 5 of Switzerland’s last 6 World Cup goals including the winner against Serbia. He will fancy his chances of adding to that against Costa Rica.
