They are the only country to have taken part at every World Cup and for sure they will try to lift the trophy in Russia. They will face Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in the Group E and looks like they will not have big problems to take top spot in this group. Here's everything you need to know about the team:

Brazil back to the World Cup after the 7-1 debacle against Germany in the 2014 World Cup and now they want to take revenge and lift the trophy this summer.

Brazil Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

Brazil are absolute favourites to win Group E and they will not have lot of problems to do that. They play in the first round against Switzerland and it will be their the heaviest match in group phase. But it is opening round, all players are highly motivated and we expect from them to hammer The Nati. In the third round they will play against weak Serbia, and maybe they will rest some players if reached Round of 16 after two rounds. On their matches we expect lots of corners, especially on the match against Serbia.
