Lusail Stadium will be the site of Thursday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup encounter between Brazil and Serbia. In a tournament that has already seen big shocks, Brazil is not likely to take anything for granted when they play Serbia. The tournament favorites have watched both Argentina and Germany suffer their first defeats, so they are guaranteed to preserve their concentration, and they are strong across the board. Neymar, the great striker for Brazil’s national team, is hoping to win his first World Cup while the Selecao want to tie their record of five World Cup victories. The 30-year-old player has a chance to overtake Pele as his country’s all-time best scorer if he scores three more goals, although Pele was a hero for Brazil in the 1970s and won three world championships. The Brazilian national team has competed in each of the last 21 World Cup tournaments and has advanced to at least the quarterfinals 13 times. Even though this is Serbia’s 12th participation, they have moved to the next round just twice in the last six. They have a powerful offense that is spearheaded by world-class striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, thus it is unwise to underrate them.
In Lusail City, Qatar, the match will get underway at 14:00 local time.

Reasons why you should support Brazil
Due to the fact that Neymar is one of the most famous players in the world but has yet to win a World Cup, the Brazilian national team will be on a quest. He has 75 career goals, which puts him two short of Pele’s record, but Pele was the great Brazilian who won three World Cups. Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, and Vinicius Junior are some examples of attackers who can play with Neymar and help ensure that he does not have to do it alone. The midfield is packed with players like Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Fred, and Fabinho, while the defense is in the strong hands of Marquinhos, captain Thiago Silva, and Eder Militao, among many more stars from the best club clubs. Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Fred, and Fabinho all play in the midfield.
Since the beginning of the qualifying round, Neymar has played 14 matches for his national team and has recorded 12 goals and 10 assists. Richarlison has scored 10 goals for Brazil in only 12 appearances, and the two of them have combined for 36 goals for the national team. In his career, Raphinha has made 11 appearances and has scored five goals and contributed four assists. In qualification, Brazil was dominant, with a record of 14-3-0 with a goal difference of plus-35.
Why you should provide your support to Serbia
In 1990 and 1998, the Serbian national team competed in the World Cup and advanced to the knockout stages of both tournaments. They come into the World Cup 2022 in fantastic shape. They finished first in the group they were competing in in the UEFA Nations League by posting a record of 4-1-0 in their last five matches while outscoring their opponents 13-4. Additionally, Serbia was victorious in their qualification group, defeating a Portugal squad that is now ranked in the top 10 in the globe. They battled back from being down two goals to tie with the Portuguese, and then little over a year ago, they came back from being down one goal to win by a score of 2-1. The onus of responsibility will fall on on Brazil’s shoulders, but Serbia has the offensive potential to shock anybody.
The headliner of the show is Mitrovic, who is joined in a powerful partnership by Dusan Vlahovic, who is just 22 years old. After setting a new record with 43 goals scored during the previous campaign to help Fulham achieve promotion, Mitrovic now sits in fourth place in the Premier League with nine goals. In 76 appearances for Serbia, he has scored 50 goals. Vlahovic has scored nine goals for Serbia in 17 appearances, and he has scored seven goals for Juventus in 15 matches so far this season. Dusan Tadic, the captain of Ajax, is now ranked second in the Dutch Eredivisie in terms of shot-creating actions (92) whereas Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who plays for Lazio, is currently ranked first in Serie A in terms of assists with seven. There is an abundance of talent in attack, which should lead to a high number of goals.
