Brazil v Serbia International Friendly Predictions & Betting Odds 6th June 2014
Brazil v Serbia Betting Preview
The Brazilians are building up some ominous looking form ahead of the start of the 2014 World Cup. They rattled off an easy 4-0 win over Panama a few days ago, and they have sensibly organised their final warm up match to be against a Serbian side, who will bear resemblance to Croatia, who Brazil face in the tournament opener on June 12th.

Brazil v Serbia Betting Tips:
Looking at their list of results, it appears that the Selecao could get pretty close to delivering on their outright favouritism. While their form is red hot, take into consideration that they really haven’t pushed themselves against top opponents. The game against Serbia will be their final game before they kick off the World Cup on June 12th against Croatia. Brazil are currently running on an eight match winning streak, the last time they lost was back in August of 2013 when they lost a friendly against Switzerland. In their stretch of eight wins, they have conceded just the two goals. Chile were about the only ones who pushed them close, losing 2-1 against their South American counterparts.
In their 4-0 win over Panama a few days ago, golden boy Neymar was on the scoresheet again. That’s four goals in his last two internationals now after netting a hat trick against South Africa. Neymar is trading as 4/5 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market against Serbia, with Fred and Hulk both trading at even money. Plenty of attacking options around for Brazil, and they should be winning this game, but looking ahead at World Cup betting, it will be interesting to see how they handle the Serbians ahead of playing Croatia.
The Bosnians couldn’t quite make it into the top two in their World Cup qualifying group, finishing third behind Belgium and Croatia. Serbia finished three points adrift of second placed Croatia. Much like Brazil really, Bosnia are on a great run of form, unbeaten in their last eight now (W5 D3) but they haven’t faced high quality opposition (again like Brazil) but two of those draws were against Croatia and Russia. There is obviously a gulf between these two nations, and it could be summed up in the fact that the Europeans only managed a 1-1 draw against Panama at the end of May in a friendly.
This should be something of a routine proceeding from Brazil, which is a great precursor to what to expect in facing Croatia. The Brazilians are flowing forward at the moment and would look over 2.5 goals in this one with Boylesports.
