England v Brazil Betting Tips & Odds

In our England v Brazil betting preview we look at the best possible bets between the two sides.

Overview

Gareth Southgate’s England host Brazil in this highly anticipated international friendly match at Wembley. After a 0-0 draw with Germany on Friday night, in which a makeshift Three Lions side put on a stellar performance to hold the visiting four time World Cup winners, the inexperienced hosts will be looking to continue in the same light here by recording another positive result against the South American powerhouses.

England will be looking to follow on from their performance against Germany here against Brazil.

Southgate’s men full of confidence after draw with Germany

The hosts head into this contest with the belief that they can come away with a win after putting in a strong performance against Germany on Friday night. Manager Gareth Southgate included five debutants in his starting line up on Friday night. Everton’s Jordan Pickford, on loan Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek and on loan Swansea striker Tammy Abraham all lined up against Joachim Low’s men, with Burnley’s Jack Cork and Liverpool’s Joe Gomez both featuring off the substitute’s bench. Alongside these debutants, the likes of Jake Livermore, Harry Maguire and Kieran Tripper, all of which are new to the senior set up were also handed starts, after they impressed in their previous games for the Three Lions.

This was a bold move from Southgate, naming such an inexperienced side against the current World Cup holders; but it seemed to have paid off – especially for Loftus-Cheek. The 21 year old Chelsea midfielder, currently on loan to Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace was magnificent on Friday night, bossing the midfield and creating chances from deep for his teammates to get on the end of. He played like a player who had been plying his trade at the top level of international football for years, and really looks to be a star for the future. Loftus-Cheek will be in line for another start here against Brazil, and if he plays anything like he did the other night, will most certainly be in serious contention for a place on the plane to Russia next June.

Gareth Southgate looks set to start the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham once again tomorrow night.

Brazil comfortable winners over Japan in Lille

The visitors went up against Japan on Friday night in their last outing. In a match played out at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in France, goals from Neymar, Marcelo and Gabriel Jesus secured an easy victory for Brazil. Tite’s men dominated the game from the outset, enjoying 60% of possession over the 90 and maybe should have won by more considering they had a further 5 shots on target that didn’t manage to find the net. They will be happy with a 3-1 win though, against a strong Japan side which included Southampton central defender Maya Yoshida. They were in truth probably only playing at about 70% anyway; the purpose of these friendly games are to try out new tactics and assess different players ahead of the competition, with the scoreline an added bonus to the overall performance.

After finishing top of their qualification group by a clear 10 points, Brazil now head into next years World Cup as second favourites to lift the trophy. The South American’s have won the biggest prize in world football a record breaking five times, more than any other country, and will feel confident about making it six with the amount of quality they have in their squad. With the likes of Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Douglas Costa and Willian providing countless opportunities for the Canarinho’s going forward, they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with in Russia, so it will be really interesting to see how this young England side copes here, especially without star striker Harry Kane at their disposal who misses the game through injury.
