The two nations will renew familiarity with one another after facing off in the group stage four years ago, when the Selecao claimed a 2-0 victory.

Brazil have arrived in Qatar as the only nation in World Cup history to have qualified for every tournament since the first edition back in 1930 following a record-breaking CONMEBOL qualification campaign.

They rarely struggle in qualifying and have had few issues in the group stage over the years as well, as they are unbeaten in their last 15 World Cup group matches since losing 2-1 to Norway back in 1998.

However, 20 years have passed since Brazil won their fifth World Cup in Seoul and the pressure is on Tite’s talented squad to live up to the pre-competition hype and improve on their quarter-final exit against Belgium four years ago.

After bowing out in the group stage at their previous three World Cup finals since gaining independence in 1990, there is a sence of optimism that Serbia can finally reach the knockout stages for the first time in Qatar.

The 25th-ranked nation in the world by FIFA impressed in UEFA qualifying and topped their group after winning six and drawing two of their eight matches, including a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Portugal in their final game.

The Eagles then earned promotion to League A of the UEFA Nations League earlier this year through four wins and a draw from six games. The narrow 1-0 defeat to Norway in June is one of just two losses suffered in their last 16 international matches across all competitions, and form on European soil has also been impressive.

Brazil vs. Serbia Head to head

These two nations have previously met on just two occasions in tw competitions, where Brazil have won in each encounter, scoring three goals and keeping clean sheets in the process.

Brazil Team News

Tite is set to have a fully-fit squad available for Thursday’s group opener, with Bruno Guimaraes, Alex Telles and Antony all recovering from minor problems.

Captain Thiago Silva could start in the back four alongside Marquinhos, Danilo and Alex Sandro, shielding first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker, in a potential 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 formation.

Serbia Team News

Serbia’s Aleksandar Mitrovic has not fully recovered from an ankle injury and is expected to begin on the substitutes’ bench, with Luka Jovic starting up front alongside Dusan Vlahovic.

Strahinja Pavlovic will be hoping to join Nikola Milenkovic and Stefan Mitrovic at centre-back in what could be a three-man defence.
