Brazil vs Switzerland: There will be a match between Brazil and Switzerland on November 28 in the second match of Group G. Both Brazil and Switzerland both have three points each as they won their first matches in the tournament. The Brazilian team beat Serbia 2-0, while the Swiss team won by a single goal against Cameroon.
Brazil vs Switzerland Match Preview
In their first meeting, Brazil and Switzerland will both be hoping to seal a spot in the knockout rounds by securing a win. A convincing victory in Brazil’s opening match was in keeping with the standards that were set before the championships began. It was, however, Murat Yakin’s team that came out on top after a razor-thin margin separating them from Cameroon.
There is no doubt that Brazil are one of the favorites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup, as they have been performing impressively prior to the tournament. With a 2-0 victory over Serbia in their previous game, the Selecao went through the group stage and will be looking to secure their place in the knock-out stages with another win this weekend.
Switzerland also won their first game of the World Cup campaign against Cameroon, but they will be up against a much more formidable opponent this week as they look to advance to the semi-finals. When the European outfit is at its best, they can offer a punch that cannot be matched by the mighty Brazilians, and they will have to put their best foot forward to stand a chance.
