LIVE: Serbia v Brazil | World Cup 2018 |||||||| LIVE ||||||||
Brazil take on Serbia with both teams needing a result at Moscow’s Spartak Stadium to advance to the World Cup last 16. The Selecao left it late to get the better of Costa Rica in their last game, and will be without the injured Danilo and Douglas Costa today.
Serbian morale was affected by a 2-1 loss to Switzerland, and midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic knows the squad has a tough match against Brazil.
”Yes, we definitely need a miracle. That is what can make us beat Brazil and get through to the next stage,” he said. ”I always say that those that believe in miracles can make them happen. We are Serbian, nothing is impossible. With a bit of luck, we can produce a miracle.”
Serbia beat Costa Rica 1-0 in its opening game, and Milinkovic-Savic said Brazil has shortcomings in its defense.
