Brazil - World Cup 2018

You are here

After the horrific semi-final loss to Germany in 2014, Brazil turned itself around and is as good as ever.

Under the tutelage of new manager Tite, who coached Corinthians to a Copa Libertadores and FIFA Club World Cup in 2012, Brazil was the first team to qualify for the 2018 World Cup (other than the host and the 2014 champs, of course).

A Five-Time World Cup Champion

Not much about Brazil's soccer history can be said that isn't known. Having won more World Cups than any other country in the tournament, they are home to some of the greatest players in the game and are among the elite soccer nations in history.

They were champions in 58, 62, 70, 94 and 02, runners-up in 50' and 98', and had a third-place finish in 38' and 78', earning the fourth place in 2014.

They have an overall record of 70 victories in 104 matches played with a +119 goal differential. They have also won the Copa America five times and have won one Olympic Gold Medal.

What Was Brazil Road To The World Cup?

Brazil did not have any road bumps in their qualification for Russia 2018. Except for a first-game loss in qualifying to 2-time Copa America champions Chile, Brazil’s road has been somewhat of a cakewalk.

Brazil finished with a +30 goal differential and compiled 41 points, ten clear of the runners-up Uruguay. 0

They had a 9 game win streak as well, and in that span outscored their opponents 26-2, which included a 5-0 drubbing of Bolivia.

Since qualifying, Brazil has gone undefeated in friendly matches against Japan (3-1), England (0-0), Russia(3-0) and gained a sliver of revenge on Germany with a 1-0 win in Berlin.

How Does The Brazil World Cup 2018 Squad Square Up?

Five players from the 7-0 defeat were on the field for that 1-0 friendly win over Germany and we can expect to see them playing for Brazil in Russia 2018.

Marcelo, Fernandinho, Paulinho, Fred, Willian and, of course, Neymar Jr. is this team’s backbone. They’re joined by newcomers Casemiro, Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho, Douglas Costa, and Dani Alvez.

Brazil Odds To Win The 2018 World Cup

Brazil is the number 2 favorite to win the 2018 World Cup behind Germany. They boast 5/1 odds of winning it all and are 1/4 odds-on favorites to win their group.

There are not many teams that could give Brazil trouble, save for Germany. If the brackets play out correctly, it could mean that the two best-ranked teams end up in the final, which would make for some high drama, to say the least.
