Brazil vs Serbia by JerryDrake
STADIUM: MORUMBI, SAO PAULO (BRAZIL)
Oscar will probably miss this last friendly in Sao Paulo as he became father of a daugher called Julia. At his place Scolari should select Willian and keep Luiz Gustavo and Paulinho in the midfield. All other players should be the ones belonging to the „best 11“. Also for this game Scolari will opt for the so-called in Brazil, força máxima.
SCORE IF YOU CAN
This is what I suppose it will be the most interesting duel of the match: Ivanovic against the Brazilian strikers. Together with Kolarov and Dusan Basta, the Chelsea centreal defender will try to play a good game and stop the Brazilian scoring machine. But I think that Scolari will want his players to concentrate in the defensive play because against Panama it was the attack the only sector he could test. As Serbia is a sparring partner that is supposed to be the model for the Croatia match, then it will be the defense and the midfield to have to show solidity tonight.
D-DAY: DEFENSE DAY
So, today it will be the D-Day for Brazil too, the day where they must test the defense. With 6 days to go before the start of the World Cup, the most of the players will avoid to risk injuries. Those who had to convince Scolari already convinced him. Those who start from the bench will not have much space.
BRAZIL: Julio Cesar; Daniel Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo; Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Willian; Hulk, Fred, Neymar. Coach: Scolari
SERBIA: Stojkovic; Basta, Gudelj, Ivanovic, Kolarov; Markovic, Tadic, Matic, Tosic; Mitrovic, Djordjevic. Coach: Drulovic
Tonight I dont see Brazil winning by more than 2 goals. I selected the bet „Brazil to win by 2“ (or X EH-2). It could be 2-0 or 3-0. I bet one unit on the „3-0 correct score“ just in case.
Brazil to win by 2, odds: 4.00 Bet365, stake: 4/10
Correct score: 3-0, odds: 7.50 Unibet, stake: 1/10
