(LIVE) Serbia – Brazil (0:2): Richarlison doubled the advantage with scissors, Jesus’ shot was saved by the crossbar – Qatar 2022

Serbia played the first 45 minutes against Brazil in Group G of the World Cup in Qatar 0:0.

The first minute was marked by Pavlović’s dribbling of two Brazilian players in front of the Serbian penalty area. The risky move drew applause, and the Brazilian players had to foul him to take the ball away from him.

Pavlović was the first to get into trouble in the Serbian team because he received a yellow card from the Iranian referee in the sixth minute, after the first start on Neymar. The impression is that the referee consciously decided to protect the main star of Brazil more than the other players

In the first 10 minutes, the Eagles held the ball longer than the Brazilians, and there is no doubt that Pixi decided to attack the five-time world champion. But, Vanja Milinković Savić made sure that there is no joke with the “carioca” who was almost denied by Nejmar from a corner in the 13th minute, but fortunately the Serbian goalkeeper saw the danger in time and boxed the ball over the crossbar.

Brazil waited until the 21st minute for the next shot into the goal area, when Casemiro stopped the breath of the “eagles” fans from over 20 meters, but the ball was also stopped without difficulty by the Serbian net keeper.

After half an hour of play, it can be said that the “eagles” are equal in the game with the “Kariokas”. The attacks of the five-time world champion stop at the edge of the penalty area, and what passes is cleared by goalkeeper Milinković-Savić.

The most dangerous situation was seen in the 27th minute when Vinicius broke out alone in front of the “eagles” goalkeeper, but the Serbian net keeper emerged victorious from that situation.

He seriously threatened Rafinje in the 35th minute, but again Milinković-Savić justified why he was chosen as the first goalkeeper of Serbia at the World Cup. He scared Pixie and the players on the field and Vinicius three minutes before halftime, after a mistake by Milenkovic, but luckily he was inaccurate and missed the goal frame from only ten meters.

The first half showed that the “eagles” can be equal with “Karioka”. Brazil had several opportunities, managed to gain the initiative in the second part of the half, but all the problems arising in the defense were successfully eliminated.

Pixi did not change anything and entered the second half with the same strength. A cold shower could have followed already in the first minute of the resumption when the entire defense got confused and instead of shooting the ball, it was handed to the Brazilian players only 20 meters from the goal. Fortunately, Vanja Milinković-Savić kept a cool head and prevented the goal.

The first 10 minutes of the resumption were difficult, as Brazil took all the strings of the game into their own hands. The “Eagles” did not manage to get to the ball, and only our “cool-headed” net keeper defended everything he needed to.

Having nothing to wait for, Pixi replaced Živković with Radonjić, and instead of Gudelj, Ilić entered the game. Just when it seemed that the changes brought improvement to the game of the “eagles”, Alex Sandro hit the post with a great shot from over 20 meters.

Already in the 62nd minute, Richarlison hits the Serbian net (0:1) after a nice action. There is no doubt, Brazil increased the tempo and it brought them the result.

Immediately after the goal, Pixi throws in a second striker, in the hope that the Vlahović-Mitrović tandem will be able to bring the initiative and equalize. These changes brought a big shift, so after a corner Sergej Milinković-Savić had a good chance with a header.

Brazil started to drag out the game and made more and more slow breaks in order not to slow down the initiative of the “eagles”. However, in the 73rd minute, after an excellent attack, Richarlison set up the ball for himself on a scissor kick and sent an undefended shot into the “eagles” net (0:2).

The second goal completely knocked out our players, who completely fell mentally. Žesus almost didn’t use the “carioca” initiative, but the crossbar saved the result.

The “Eagles” will play their first match at the World Cup at the “Lusail Ikonik” stadium, which is located 20 kilometers from the center of Doha and has a capacity of 88,000 seats.

It is interesting that one South American favorite has already fallen in this same stadium, since Saudi Arabia defeated Argentina (2:1) after a turnaround.

It is also interesting that FIFA awarded the distribution of justice to Alireza Fagani from Iran, the same referee who refereed the Serbia-Brazil match at the World Cup in Russia four years ago. Then “Karioka” won 2:0, and although we had a lot of objections to the game of our national team, we did not blame the Iranian referee, who was twice declared the best referee of the Asian continent.

Pixie’s message was clear to the players, that they don’t have to do anything, but they can do a lot. Serbia made a real success by qualifying for the World Cup, and a possible passage to the second round would be a great success.

Serbian fans have already arrived at the biggest stadium in this World Cup.

Bookmakers do not trust Serbia

Bookmakers practically did not give Serbia any chance to win. The odds for Brazil’s victory range from 1.50 to 1.65, for a draw they are around 3.50, and for Serbia’s triumph in the range from 7.50 to 8.00.

In practice, this means that, according to bookmakers, a draw against “Kariok” would be a sensation, and a victory would be an unprecedented miracle. However, the bookmakers did not give Saudi Arabia any chance against Argentina, nor Japan against Germany, because the beauty of football lies in the fact that not everything can be predicted in advance.
