So Brazil have started with a win, although it was not very convincing and needed a horrendous refereeing decision. There are clear weaknesses in their team and not a lot of depth. They seem unbalanced and too attacking with very little cover for the full backs. Oscar and Hulk are not going to be doing much tracking back to help out Marcelo and Alves and there seems little other options for them.
Neymar got a yellow card and that means he runs the risk of a suspension getting another. The card is wiped after the quarter final stage but he could easily get another. He got 6 yellows in 26 matches in the Spanish League last season and being partial to a dive could be carded at some stage and if they have to play without him then you would fancy their opposition whoever they are.
I’m following a simple system on backing draws in the world cup and will post all the selections here. There will also be some win bets in the knockout phase. I’ll take the pinnacle price always as anyone can get on with them
