The two undefeated teams to come out of the opening matches in Group G will battle for an early opportunity to clinch a place in the round of 16.

Brazil displayed sheer brilliance in their opening match that validated why they are the outright favorite to win the World Cup, dismantling Serbia 2-0.

The Swiss defeated Cameroon 1-0, thanks to a 48th-minute goal from their center forward, Breel Embolo.

Can the Swiss pull off the latest upset of the World Cup and get a result against the powerhouse that is Brazil?

Brazil Will Be Okay Without Neymar

The 2-0 scoreline for Brazil over Serbia doesn’t do justice for just how good they were on the day. 

Brazil’s head coach, Tite, had his team buzzing on both sides of the ball. They won every statistical category on the day, highlighted by winning the xG battle 2.3 to 0.2.

The only negative on the day for the South American side was that Neymar suffered a late ankle injury. Fortunately for them and all soccer fans, the PSG frontman should be back in time if Brazil are to make it to the knockout rounds.

Without Neymar being the connector for all things in the Brazil attack as a free-roaming No. 10, they will be even more dependable on the creativity of their wingers and the scoring of Richarlison. 

The Tottenham striker is in top form and his two goals during the Serbia match are becoming normal when he puts on the famous yellow jersey.

During World Cup Qualifying, he led the Seleção in goals from open play (6) and goals per 90 with 1.02 (among players that start). 

Switzerland Are a Cohesive Unit

Switzerland are a high-floor team. They are full of veterans with World Cup experience but lack an explosive player who can turn a game on its head. 

We saw just that in their 1-0 victory over Cameroon, as the Red Cross were rarely in any real trouble, winning the xG battle 1.44-0.74. 

Their strong spine of Yan Sommer in the net, Manuel Aknji and Nico Elvdi as a center-back pairing and Granit Zhaka and Romo Frueler as the midfield duo cause problems for any team. 

Manager Murat Yakin takes a defensive approach, lining his team up in a 4-2-3-1 that drops deep as a unit to prevent teams from breaking into the 18-yard box and forces long-range shots. It was a strategy that we saw work to perfection earlier this year when they defeated both Portugal and Spain in UEFA Nations League play.

Brazil vs. Switzerland Pick

Brazil are unbeaten in their last 16 group stage games at the World Cup, and while it is tough to put a quantitative value on just how important Neymar can be to this Brazilian team, they have an abundance of riches in attack.

They have enough creativity to overcome this Switzerland side and become the first team to go 17 games without a defeat in the group stages of the competition.

Back the Brazilians to take care of business and stamp their ticket to the knockout rounds. Combine their moneyline with an alternate total to drop some of the juice.

The Pick:  Parlay: Brazil ML + Under 4.5 (-145)
