The current generation of “pentacampeone” may well change this nickname. For the first time in two decades, the Brazilians are serious about competing for the title. Another advantage of “selesao” is the hot climate of Qatar. Recall that it is in this country that the world football championship will begin at the end of November this year. In addition to the fans, bettors are looking forward to the start of the tournament. Already today you can bet on your favorite team at mostbet uz.com.
We also recall that the Brazilians lead the world ranking of football teams and are considered the main favorites of the tournament. According to team striker Neymar, this is the best Brazilian team since his debut. However, the reality may not match the predictions. First you need to get out of the group (it is unlikely that there will be problems with this, but still), and then think about the decisive fights. Competing for the playoffs in Group G are:
Switzerland: will quantity turn into quality
The “paper team”, as the Swiss national team is sometimes called, qualified for the finals of the World Cup for the fourth time in a row. In recent years, the team has earned itself the title, if not the grandee of European football, then a strong middle peasant. In the world ranking table, the Swiss occupy 15th place, although they did not achieve special victories in major tournaments. It will not be easy to leave the group, in addition to Brazil, the two remaining teams in Group G will also be able to compete for a ticket to the playoffs. The odds for winning the championship are 1 to 81.
Serbia: there is still gunpowder in the Balkan powder flasks
Another solid European middle peasant. The team does not have enough stars from the sky, but rarely leaves the field without a fight. Today head coach Dragan Stojkovic has at his disposal such stars as Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio), Kostic and Vlahovic (both Juventus) and the list goes on. In terms of composition, the Serbs are not inferior to many contenders for the title, but bookmakers estimate their chances for the championship rather modestly: 1 to 81.
Cameroon: it will be hot for everyone
“Indomitable Lions” have not shown their true character for a long time and, as a result, they are now only in 43rd place in the world ranking. However, the composition of the team can make a small sensation at this World Cup. The main stars of the Cameroonians are Andre Onana (Inter), Choupo-Moting (Bayern), Carl Toko-Ekambi (Lyon). In addition to these players, the coaching staff has a number of high-class performers who can deliver a lot of trouble to their rivals. However, bookmakers estimate the chances of the “lions” for the title as ghostly: 1 to 251.
Brazil: when there are too many stars
Brazil has never had a shortage of high quality players, but today we can talk about an oversupply of stars. Suffice it to say that London Arsenal striker Jesus may miss out on the World Cup. Allison, Rodrigo, Junior, Casemiro – most coaches would like to see these performers in their lineup.
Selesao will definitely have no problems with leaving the group. And then it all depends on whether the head coach of the team, Tite, will be able to create a high-class team from star players that can win the championship title. Bookmakers believe that the Brazilian national team will break this year’s series of relative failures and once again conquer the football Olympus. Today, the chances of winning the Pentacampione championship are regarded as very high, the coefficient of long-term rates is 1 to 5.5. In two months we will be able to find out whether these forecasts were justified.
