The White Eagles enter this duel third in the group, a point behind Switzerland and Brazil. Progressing to the knockout round thus requires that they claim a vital victory against the pre-tournament favourites here.
Having seen their highly contested showdown with the Swiss side settled by a last minute strike from Xherdan Shaqiri, they’ll be hoping to make a statement of intent here against the South Americans at a whopping (7.00) with LionsBet .
The Selecao failed to defeat Switzerland in their opener that was shockingly well matched, while Costa Rica’s efforts to curtail the Brazilians’ lethal attack were dashed at stoppage time.
Tite’s charges have clashed with the Serbians four times in the quadrennial tournament, including the period when Serbia was still with Yugoslavia and both sides have won once and drawn twice. The bookies quote odds of (1.50) for them to march to victory here.
Considering that two of both teams’ last four ties ended in a no winner, no vanquish state, it’ll be worth backing a repeat of similar outcome here at a mouth-watering (4.25) with the same firm.
