Likely lineups

The last match scheduled for Thursday is Brazil’s World Cup debut in Qatar. Awaiting them will be Serbia, in the match valid for Group G, scheduled for 8 p.m. Italian time.

Tite throws all his stars up there in front: Raphinha, Neymar and Vinicius will act behind the only forward Richarlison, preferred over Gabriel Jesus. The midfield dam is formed by Fred and Casemiro, while in defense the certainty is Thiago Silva, alongside Marquinhos. HCL-tinged full-backs with Danilo on the right and Alex Sandro on the left.

Stojkovic’s Serbia speaks very ‘Italian’: in goal is Vanja Milinkovic-Savic of Torino, in defense Milenkovic of Fiorentina, in midfield Granata’s Lukic and Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and in attack Bianconeri Vlahovic. The other bianconero Kostic is absent due to injury; Mladenovic is expected to play in his place.

Likely lineups.

BRAZIL (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Danilo, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Alex Sandro; Fred, Casemiro; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius Junior; Richarlison. Ct. Tite
