Brazil: This Brazil team is one full of flair and unlimited potential. So many superstars and only a certain amount of minutes to go around. The intriguing question is whether Richarlison or Gabriel Jesus will start at striker. A good problem to have, surely, Jesus has been gaining momentum as he’s helped lead Arsenal to the top of the Premier League table. This team doesn’t really have any glaring holes, though perhaps Fred being a weak spot in comparison to the others, but expect them to make a deep, deep run at the bare minimum.
Serbia: They have a ton of quality in the midfield and in attack, but the real questions are at the back. Nemanja Vidic isn’t walking through that door, so the likes of Stefan Mitrovic and Milos Veljkovic will need to be at their very best against Brazil’s technique and speed. Keeping their attackers in front of them, closing down in numbers and looking to push them wide will be vital.
