Brazil will lock horns with Switzerland at Stadium 974 on Monday as they look to secure another good result in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Brazilian national side managed to earn a solid 2-0 win over Croatia recently which will give them a lot of momentum ahead of this game.
Tite will once again opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could name a strong first XI for this clash in Doha. Neymar Jr. will be sidelined for this game due to an injury which means that Fred could play from the start in this clash versus the Swiss.
4-2-3-1 Brazil Predicted Lineup To Face Switzerland
Alisson Becker will operate in between the sticks for Brazil after earning a clean sheet in his last World Cup outing. Marquinhos will once again play alongside Thiago Silva at the heart of Tite’s defence as they try to keep things solid at the back throughout the 90 minutes.
Eder Militao could be asked to fill in as a makeshift right-back while Alex Sandro looks to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Both of them could be given the freedom to express themselves in the opponent’s half so that they can orchestrate some meaningful openings from the flanks.
Dani Alves and Gleison Bremer will be named on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive spots.
Fred and Casemiro will be given the responsibility to anchor the midfield with conviction for Brazil and move the ball well going forward.
Vinicius Junior will try to make a difference from the left wing while Raphinha hopes to prove his worth from the right. Lucas Paqueta might get a chance to impress as a free-flowing attacking midfielder in the Switzerland half. He will have to carry most of the creative workload for Brazil in the final third.
Fabinho and Antony will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.
Richarlison will once again lead the line for Brazil on his own up top. He scored two good goals versus Serbia and would be full of confidence ahead of this World Cup clash at Stadium 974.
Gabriel Jesus will be named on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the latter stages of the contest if Tite’s team are in need of a goal by then.
