Brazil will square off against Switzerland in their second fixture of the FIFA World Cup 2022 Group G on November 28 at the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium in Qatar. The match is scheduled to start at 9:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
The Brazil national football team started their campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win over Serbia earlier this week.
Richarlison was on target twice for the World No. 1 team in the match. The Tottenham Hotspur forward opened the scoring just after the hour mark before netting what could be deemed as a strong contender for goal of the tournament.
In the 73rd minute, Vinicius Jr.’s neat footwork on the left flank set up Richarlison for an overhead kick, which left Serbia goalie Vanja Milinkovic-Savic with no chance of making a save.
However, their victory was marred by an unfortunate injury to talisman Neymar, who will miss the remaining group phase matches. The PSG striker is expected to be back for the knockouts if Brazil progress to the Round of 16.
On the other hand, the Switzerland national football team registered a narrow 1-0 win against Cameroon.
Attacker Breel Embolo scored the only goal of the match just after half-time as some good saves from their goalkeeper Yann Sommer throughout the match kept the lead intact.
Nonetheless, they now face a lethal Selecao, who have won each of their last eight matches across all competitions, scoring 28 goals while conceding only twice.
The Rossocrociati’s defence line needs to put their best foot forward if they are to take any points off this Brazil team.
Brazil vs Switzerland head-to-head
The two sides have faced each other on nine instances in all competitions, with Brazil winning three of them. Switzerland won twice while four games ended in a stalemate.
Interestingly, the two teams were slotted in the same group in the last edition as well, with the match finishing 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.
