Brazil play Switzerland later today in the second round of the World Cup group stages.
Both sides won their group first game of the competition and while Brazil will be clear favourites in this fixture, Switzerland will be confident that they can cause an upset.
With Neymar’s injury, Tite will most likely change Brazil’s formation from 4-5-1 to 4-3-3. The Brazilian head coach is expected to start four players from La Liga, three from Real Madrid and one from Sevilla.
Vinícius Júnior and Rodrygo will probably play either side of Richarlison in attack, while Éder Militão and Alex Telles are expected to play as full-backs.
Predicted Brazil lineup against Switzerland
AS predict that Tite will field the following starting XI against Switzerland: Alisson – Éder Militão, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex Telles – Fred, Casemiro, Lucas Paquetá – Vinícius Júnior, Richarlison, Rodrygo.
The match is set to kick-off at 5 pm CET.
