BRAZIL take on Serbia on Wednesday in their bid to reach the knockout stages.
The South Americans endured a disappointing 1-1 draw against Switzerland in their first Group E match, before showing an improved performance in their victory over Costa Rica.
They will secure a place in the last 16 with a point against Serbia.
Yet, victory may not be enough to secure top spot with Switzerland only a goal behind on goal difference.
A defeat could even see the five-time winners knocked out of the World Cup, should the Swiss triumph against Costa Rica.
Here is everything you need to know about the game at Otkrytie Arena in Moscow…
Despite victory against Costa Rica, Brazil have not yet lived up to their pre-tournament favourites hype so far.
With three strong teams in Group E, there was always going to be at least one that would miss out.
And knowing that Switzerland are heavy favourites in their Costa Rica clash, Serbia will want to go all out against the South Americans and could spring a shock result.
Betway have the Europeans to beat Brazil and potentially knock them out at a tantalising 11/2.
