It was a tinderbox affair four years ago between Brazil and Switzerland in the 2014 World Cup, with Neymar getting fouled him 10 times — the highest figure for a single player at a World Cup since 1998 — and that bad blood is likely to make Monday’s showdown a tempestuous yet fascinating clash.

Neymar was given similar treatment earlier this week as Serbia hacked away at his ankles, which resulted in the PSG star going off injured and looking visibly distressed. Whether he plays on Monday remains to be seen, but Tite is certainly not short of back-up options, boasting an elite insurance policy on the bench.

The likes of Gabriel Jesus, Antony, Gabriel Martinelli and Rodrygo all started on the touchline in the 2-0 win over Serbia, underlining the full scope of Tite’s arsenal. Switzerland meanwhile were made to work for a 1-0 win over Cameroon, and they will feel confident of getting a result against Brazil given what happened in 2018.

Brazil vs Switzerland match stats

As mentioned, Neymar was fouled a quite ridiculous 10 times against Switzerland in the group stages of the last World Cup. In total they fouled Brazil 19 times. With Granit Xhaka’s enthusiasm always good for a foul or two, Brazil will likely come in for a similar level of physicality. That could work in the European’s favour, as it did four years ago, or Brazil could capitalise on the rough-housing, especially in the box. Don’t be surprised to see the referee point to the spot at some stage. Richarlison will certainly be putting him name forward for any spot-kick activity. Following his brace against Serbia, the Spurs man has now scored 19 goals in his 39 appearances for the nation.

Scoreline prediction: Brazil 3-1 Switzerland

Brazil vs Switzerland head-to-head

17 Jun 2018 – Brazil 1-1 Switzerland – World Cup

14 Aug 2013 – Switzerland 1-0 Brazil – International Friendly

17 Jun 1983 – Switzerland 1-2 Brazil – International Friendly

The only competitive games between these two nations came in that aforementioned 1-1 draw during the last World Cup, with Philippe Coutinho scoring for Brazil and Steven Zuber equalising, and the 1950 World Cup. Brazil famously reached the final, but even then, they could only draw with Switzerland 2-2. Alfredo and Baltazar got the goals for the South Americans, while Jacques Fatton bagged a brace for the Swiss.
